The Luster of Pandemonium (2005), 6/10

Texas' Crimson Massacre, featuring guitarist James Jackson and drummer Scott Horne, debuted with Temple of Gore (2003) in a relatively melodic black-metal style.

A new line-up, this time fronted by Peter Olen, recorded the vastly more experimental The Luster of Pandemonium (2005) in the vein of "technical" death-metal. In reality, the epileptic guitar discharges of songs such as Catalyst's Tongue sound a bit awkward. There is certainly a lot of chaos, but chaos is not always creative. The Devourer is a more interesting case because classical influences (Bach?) percolate into it. In fact, the eleven-minute instrumental The Hyperborean's Epitaph is a romantic solo of acoustic guitar (except for the incongruent ending of "acid" distortion). Back to senseless speed, a better flow in The Luster of Pandemonium justifies its barbaric and meandering erudition. The final onslaught, the ten-minute Of Perverted Hope and Fragmented Suffering, is surprisingly melodic (if you make it through the first two minutes), and, again, one can perceive classical influences in the dialogue between the guitars.
