"Antilogos: Arcane Transmutation in the Temple of Flesh"

By Dr. Abner Mality

Chile's bestial black metal factory churns another one off the assembly line. In South America, these bands are emerging in unceasing waves, each one sounding much like the last until even the better ones begin to bore. At this point, I suspect even Satan himself would have a hard time telling Chilean black/war metal bands apart.

INDOCTRINATE, arising from the ashes of SADISTIK GOATHAMMER, is no different. There is unholy aggression here and riffs worthy of igniting a demonic pit, but nothing particularly stands out from the diabolical herd. At times the band is almost pure noise, like the opening "NAGITHA"; at others, actual riffs appear. "Antediluvian Experiencia" is almost shocking with its composed, almost catchy hooks, but that's a ringer amidst a pack of typical evil war metal. "OOOGGHHH" and "AAAAGGGHHH" seem to be some of the vocalist's favorite lyrics, from what I can tell.

Little more to say. INDOCTRINATE does provide some uncompromising savagery (that's the title of an actual song here) and will satisfy if that's all your looking for. But in the next week, we'll probably have 3 or 4 more bands like this on our hands.
