Le diamant de Lucifer

Rated 3.17/5 (63.33%) (6 Votes)

Sacrifizer is a French band that plays metal of the black/thrash variety on their debut album, Le diamant de Lucifer. The music is a familiar cacophony of raw guitars and fiendishly fast drums underpinning hellish vocals with perhaps a dash more punk than other bands in the subgenre. I find much of the album a little generic, which is not to say it isn’t violently fun while on, just that the songs don’t have a lot of individuality, that is until the end of the album. At that point, Sacrifizer really brings their A game and create a creepy, haunted atmosphere. They start with the instrumental "L’entité" with ‘80s synths and a dark, disturbing vibe right out of the Blade Runner soundtrack. This segues into "La cathédrale," the highlight of the album for me, with its smoother (though no less heavy) riffing and sweet lead work plus cleaner and more tortured vocals that sends chills down the spine. By no means a revelation, Le diamant de Lucifer is sure to please fans of Bewitcher, Midnight, Black Mass, et al.
