4 stars "777 - The Desanctification" is the 10th full-length studio album by French black metal act Blut aus Nord. The album was released through Debemur Morti Productions in November 2011. The band have been quite busy lately as they also released "777 - Sect(s)" in April 2011. "777 - The Desanctification" is the second album in a triology of albums that started with "777 - Sect(s) (2011)" and ended with "777 - Cosmosophy (2012)".

The music on the album is atmospheric and in some cases industrial tinged extreme metal with more than a nod towards post metal. The tracks are repetitive and atmosperic, slow- to mid paced and for the most part dark and ominous. The black metal tag that is usually applied to the bandīs music actually isnīt that useful when describing this album. Itīs mostly the sparse unintelligible raspy vocals that point in that direction and even those are of a more death metal tinged juicy quality. Usual black metal traits like blast beats and fierce tremolo picking are not a part of the sound on "777 - The Desanctification".

The sound production is professional and suits the music really well.

"777 - The Desanctification" is not an album with jaw dropping virtuosic moments or hookladen guitar riffs. Itīs all about dark ambient atmosphere and the band are very successful at creating an interesting listening experience here. a 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

UMUR | 4/5 |
