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.

Ravencult - Morbid Blood [2011]

And I am back from my nice, quiet weekend away from all the bullshit.

Feels good man.

Anyway, since I am back behind the keyboard in an official capacity, it's time to get back to the contributing.

What I have for you today is one of the few truly solid Black Metal releases of 2011, which has been a terribly slow year for the genre. Morbid Blood, by Greek Black Metal warlords Ravencult, is not one of those "By the Dark Lords, Black Metal has changed forever!" type albums: that is not how these guys roll. But it is just rock solid, fun as hell and very honest traditional Black Metal.

Kudos off the bat to the excellent cover art, which is what first drew me to the album. It's the perfect color, form and overall level of evil we expect from a Black Metal band. And so is the music: this is classic Mayhem worship, just with better musicianship. At times, it has a strong Punk Rock feel(like the opening track "Sacrilege of Death"), which helps prove my long standing argument that Black Metal was intended to be Norwegian Nationalist Punk Rock before all the real Metal musicians took the genre away from Varg and his cohorts. The production is classic Black Metal: very loud and every instrument and the vocals can he heard, but it's also very distorted and dirty. I love the guitar tone on this record in particular.

Any self-respecting fan of Black Metal is going to dig this. Honestly, if you claim to be a Black Metal fan and don't like this record, you are either a poser or a cynical Black Metal hipster. Which is it?
