Sanctificica - _In the Bleak Midwinter_
by: Alex Cantwell (4 out of 5)
Sanctifica hail from Sweden, and pronounce their place within the metal kingdom with this, their first demo. They play a very good, although somewhat basic, brand of atmospheric black metal. The production is quite good, and they even do leads, which is refreshing to hear in black metal. Sanctifica utilize keyboards to create menacing atmospheres, and employ both shrill and clean vocals. It seems to me that they listen to Enslaved quite a bit, which is a good thing. Of course, with demos there's always room for improvement, and I think that attention would need to be directed simply to the overall songsmithing itself. A very good demo on all counts.
