Lvcifyre is a force to be reckoned with, and on Svn Eater, they show you just how uncompromisingly savage and intense they are. This style of death metal is similar to what bands like Altarage, Mitochondrion and Diocletian play, so do not expect any melodic flourishes, acoustic interludes or clean vocals at any point. The atmosphere on Svn Eater is thick, oppressive and ominous, and you will not receive any respite. Luckily, respite is unnecessary when the instrumental prowess and the riffs are as impressive as they are here. Once you start this album, prepare yourself for a descent into Hell, a descent from which your return cannot be guaranteed.
Favorite track: Sun Eater.
