Mz 412 In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi LP Review:
I wasn’t really a big fan of Mz 412 at first, but I decided to give them a second chance and decided to listen to this record again. I realized then that I underestimated how good the album really was. The album is a very good blend of dark ambient,experimental noise and the genre the band helped invent Industrial Black Metal. Originally known as Maschinenzimmer 412 the band which consists of Nordvargr, Drakhon and Ulvtharm created a dark sonic soundscape which even to this day will still haunt you and leave you feeling cold and lifeless. The album opens with a sample of Anton Lavey speaking from the satanic bible summing up the albums message and demeanor. There are other samples which I didn’t recognize but definitely add to the dark essence of the albums presence. The album which was recorded and released in 1995 is still good to this day. The band blends in different sounds together creating the perfect soundtrack for horror films such as the Omen, The Exorcist and Rosemary’s Baby. The titles track, “Necrotic Birth”, “Daemon Raging” and “Paedophilia Cum Sadimsus” are personal favorites of mine. Overall the album itself is a definite good listen. The band is currently working on another record which I can’t wait to hear!
