Sacramentum

Sacramentum was formed in 1990 by Nisse Karlén, initially as Tumulus, with the name change occuring just before their first demo in 1992. Their first official release came in 1995 (the MCD Finis Malorum) and by 1999 three albums had followed that initial release. The band's stated goal was to combine elements of both black and death metal, and on The Coming Of Chaos, that's precisely what they have done. There are clear influences from both camps, with black metal being slightly more dominating, though a touch of the melodic Swedish death style can be heard as well. The Coming Of Chaos is a good album, though arguably not the most memorable -- the band thrashes about energetically, the notes are all in the right places, but as is the case with many bands, they are members of a genre rather than leaders or innovators. Nonetheless, they are a fine addition to a death/black collection. Little has been heard from since their 1999 Thy Black Destiny release.
