Discord, disorder, and strife are staples of the black metal genre. Music in this vein tends to be chaotic and aggressive. Composure, harmony, and cohesion are staples of the classical genre. Music in this vein tends to be unified and subdued. When classically minded musicians decide that black metal will be their chosen form of artistic expression, bands like Emperor are born. They produce disturbingly chaotic and insanely aggressive music that is bound together by an overall cohesive unity that is not always immediately apparent, but that clearly comes into view as the music is explored more fully. When bands like Emperor tire of catering to their fans expectations and being as minimally mainstream as they are; when they decide to cast aside all preconceived notions of what genre or type of music they should be creating; when their only goal becomes to rip their desires, emotions, and fears directly out of their souls and display them in all their ugly glory through the medium of music, then bands like Peccatum are born.

Peccatum is composed of Emperor front man Ihsahn and his wife Ihriel, and it is clear that neither of them at any point contemplated whether anyone else would enjoy this album, or play it's tracks on the radio, or if they should have added or removed certain elements to make it more popular to sell more copies. Amor Fati successfully marries the technical and complicated guitar work that Ihshan tried to integrate into Emperor, much to the fans consternation and general hatred of Emperor's final album, with Ihriel's disturbingly beautiful shrieks and purposefully off-key singing that also would have never been accepted in a standard black metal album.

Slightly operatic hard hitting rock and roll. The Diffrence is big.
I'm truely enjoying this album. Peccatum has undergone a change since "Strangling From Within". The maturation has made them sound much more solid. Peccatum came as being extremely artsy-neuvou if you will and yet it was artsy in a very progressive way, now with thier follow up you get to hear the psuedo-metal art/rock band become alot more of a rock band. The Double bass rumbling of your standard black metal has much more become fills and rolls on this album and the altogether accesibility of this album could fit easier with people, being that its much more organic and hard hitting then thier other work to date.
Ihsahn and Ihriel compliment eachother's vocals better then before and you get to see Ihsahn continueing to work on vocal diffrences as he did with every Emperor album. Ihriel herself has become better with her vocal work... and as you could easily have expected Ihsahn continues to employ his unique guitar work and structures.
All together a much more solid and attention grabbing album then "Strangling from Within". If you should happen to enjoy this album I would still however quickly buy "Strangling From Within" because it really does rock nearly as good and in a much diffrent way.

This third release from Peccatum is definiteley their best. Once a side project of Ihsahn, ex of Emperor, Peccatum basically lays an opera on top of a black metal orchestra. Lots of synth, violins, and odd sounds shake up the mix. Vocals are traded off between Ihriel (Ihsahn's wife, clean, great soprano) Lord PZ (Ihriel's brother, harsh vocals), and Ihsahn (ex Emperor) who provides just about everything else.
Unlike their previous releases, they use real instruments for backup and the warm tone really helps draw you into an entire atmosphere of chaos, especially offbeat songs like "One Play. No Script." and "Murder" that between verse and chorus change their feel from turbulent to uplifting-- there really is no so-called rock opera that's as good as this. "Rise, Ye Humans" is probably the highlight as far as tunes that are easy to listen to; the best, however is "A Game Divine?", downright haunting, playing Ihsahn's frantic rhythm and menacing vocals off Ihriel's siren wail.
It's an odd treat for fans of either Emperor, Tartaros, or even fans of Wagner and Tchaikovshy. As well this album bridges the dramatic shift in Ihsahn's guitar and songwriting styles between Emperor's IX: Equilibrium album and final album Prometheus...
This in my top 10 out of over 400 albums, seriously.

Even though Emperor is gone (too bad, too bad), their charismatic front man Ihsahn is still going strong. Like his work with Emperor, Ihsahn provides great black and operatic clean vocals in addition to brilliant guitar work, but it sounds so much better without Trym pounding away at the kit, and you can actually hear the guitar intricacies! Per Erikson provides the percussion, which is simple in comparison to Emperor's work, but fits Peccatum's music much better. Ihsahn's lovely wife Ihriel provides some great soprano vocals, in addition to most of the lyrics and compositions (talent seems to attract talent) as well as the keyboards. Lord PZ (that has to be the dumbest BM pseudonym I've ever heard) is the third member of the band and contributes practically nothing. I guess it's just a family thing that he's in there. The best song is the opener, but each song is well-produced and played out beautifully. Peccatum takes the power and rawness of Emperor and combines it with the melodic and less-intrusive fluency that is exemplified by bands like Sirenia and Trail of Tears. If you liked Emperor's albums and also like a drop of gothic in your metal, then you're going to like Peccatum's Amor Fati. I've gotta get their other works now.
