Proclamation have returned for the third time to spill the blood of the angel of doom…. For most, little needs to be said of Proclamation. By now, their methodology is renowned and respected. For the uninitiated, however, Proclamation arrange and rearrange the structures advanced by the legendary Blasphemy making no attempt to conceal their reverence for the desecrators. Rather, Proclamation seeks to preserve the legacy of this style of black metal at a time when so many less deserving bands seem intent on torturing it. Improving with every album, on “Execration of Cruel Bestiality” Proclamation demonstrate once again their ability to concoct seemingly endless permutations of the archetype, each one more potent that the previous. This is perhaps the finest offering Proclamation has yet delivered. The blasphemic cancer has metastasized once again.
