The album begins as you are being baptized under "The sign of evil existence", a raging composition with fiery guitar riffing and a really unearthly interpretation by Necromayhem leading to a dark opus, "Transform all suffering into plagues". The guitar work is deeply inspired and harmonizes wonderfully with the ethereal keyboard melodies that float here and there evoking an evil feeling in the air accompanying Necromayhem's eerie voice. "Fgmenth, they gift" follows, a great mid-tempo composition with stunning guitar work that always holds a special place in the track-list of Rotting Christ's live shows. It seems that the one great song comes after the other and "Dive the deepest abyss" is one of them with the guitars along with Necromayhem's eerie voice evoking an unearthly atmosphere in the air.
"Thy Mighty Contract" flows in raging tones with a fiery masterpiece, "Exiled Archangels", and anything I may say is not enough to show how great and inspired this composition is; the guitars, stunning and raging, set the heavens on fire as Necromayhem blesses us under Rotting Christ's cult with his nocturnal interpretation. The heavy metal oriented guitar riffing and Necromayhem's grim voice as some ethereal keyboard melodies echo continue the album in the appropriate way with "His sleeping majesty" leading to the fiery maelstrom of "The coronation of the serpent" with the guitars dancing macabre in the dark evoking a strange melody harmonizing with Necromayhem's, as always, great interpretation strengthening the overall evil feeling. The album reaches the end as "The fourth knight of Revelation" casts his spell of destruction through Rotting Christ's unholy melodies with the guitars painting the soundscape with black colors of the heart, Necromayhem summoning the "fourth of knight of Revelation" and the keyboard melodies that echo here and there completing the ritual.
If you adore pure black metal and you still don't own "Thy Mighty Contract" you are causing major harm to yourself and the first thing you should do after reading this review is to run to the nearest music store and buy it for your own shake!
