No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

Arkhon Infaustus - Orthodoxyn [2007]

When I first heard of Arkhon Infaustus and saw one of their stupidly kvlt pictures, I wrote them off right away as some bullshit bedroom trve Black Metal band who practiced in their mothers basement and had fully planned out their first church burning but will never go through with it. I openly admit to stereotyping this band, and laughed them off and went back to jamming the new Bowerbirds(you guys just missed my Folk and Country music faze). But as a moved back toward listening to primarily Extreme Metal, one of the first bands I ended up hearing from was Arkhon Infaustus. It was then that I re-learned one old life lesson while also learning a brand new one:

1. Never judge a book by it's cover.
2. Arkhon Infaustus are fucking amazing.

is by far one of the most evil, brutal, uncompromisingly dark albums ever produced. Despite their image and connection to the French Black Metal scene(which is the best Black Metal scene on Earth right now), Arkhon Infaustus are as much Death Metal as Black Metal: this album makes heavy use of guttural growls, crushing riffs and even some groove from time to time. But it's also filled with plenty of dissonant, complex Black Metal that the French scene has become famous for. The vocals and production are the highlights of this album: the band makes use of the previously mentioned guttural growl, a mid-pitch, raspy, pained scream similar to Glorior Belli, and a larynx-piercing shriek, often all at the same time. And the production on this album is filthy, nasty and ugly: perfect for ugly music like this. Just check this one out guys: it's utterly brilliant for both Death Metal and Black Metal fans.

232 kbps(means nothing on this record)
