Blasphemy - Discography


Review by Elek Malcolm-Madill

Genre/s: Blackened Death Metal, War Metal
For Fans Of: Conqueror, Revenge, Beherit, Diocletian, Proclamation, Cremation, Archgoat
Favourite Tracks: Desecration, Goddess of Perversity

First off I'd like to apologize to the person who asked for this on my Revenge discog post and I said something along the lines of "I'll throw it up soon". Well, I've been insanely busy with school lately but here it is at long last, the short but terrific discography of Burnaby, British Columbia band Blasphemy. I don't really know what to say about Blasphemy that likely hasn't already been said by someone else at some point, they're a grimy cross breed of black and death metal with grindcore influences much like Conqueror and Revenge but not to the same extent. They're mainly known for their 1990 masterpiece "Fallen Angel of Doom" which is essentially a primitive steamroller of blackened death which has been completely ripped off by tons of other bands since- most notably Beherit on the album "The Oath of Black Blood". Like I said, not sure what to say here that hasn't already been said- so just download, play, and enjoy it for yourself.
