SAMAEL — Ceremony of Opposites (review)

Warthur
On Ceremony of Opposites, Samael adjust their sound to be substantially more doom metal focused, with only Vorphalack's vocals really showing much of a black metal influence. This is solid but unexceptional stuff, which makes me rather glad that Samael would make a radical change to their sound with the subsequent Passage, since here the original blackened doom metal Samael approach seems to be running out of steam a little. Still, if you like the idea of doom metal with black metal vocals you'll probably find it reasonably engaging, if a little monotonous here and there. Out of the first three Samael albums, this is easily the least essential.
