4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Odd Black Metal Album March 12, 2003
By Twitch
Format:Audio CD
I decided to purchase this album because of Killjoy and Phil Anselmo's involvment, because I have loved Necrophagia for a long time. I was very pleased with what I found. Viking Crown's sophmore release 'Innocence From Hell' is a very good black metal album that strangely meanders through out its length. Strating out as Phil Anselmo himself playing everything on Viking Crown's debut, the addition of vocalist Killjoy and Phil's wife Opal (whose 'Southern Isolation' E.P. was brilliant) on keyboards allowed Phil to go into deeper terriory.
The album goes in many directions musically. The songs range from a brilliant one and a half minute keyboard solo ("Birth of the Devil Fetus"), to a sludge meets black metal type track ("The Burning Embers of Mockery"), to flat out black metal ("The Long and Mighty Reign of Satan"). After several stellar tracks, Viking Crown explode into "The Red Flames of Sin". The track is a brutal black metal assault on the sences - also my favorite. From that, it goes to a beautifully depressing five and a half minute instrumental done by Opal - very pleasing no the ears after "The Red Flames of Sin". For the next three tracks the production pretty much goes from a decently polished sound to a raw and edgey sound that truly brings out the spirit of traditional black metal. One of those tracks is the nearly ten minute epic "Raped by an Angel". Unlike most bands, when Viking Crown does a song this long, they do not slow down or soften up. The song is an aggressive and fastpaced work of black metal genius that brings out the best of Viking Crown.
Viking Crown's sophmore release 'Innocence from Hell' is a very good, very diverse, and very odd black metal album.

When I bought this album I thought it was going to be like

Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir or Immortal.

But nah! This album is pure brutality of evil and satanism in

the black metal genre. The vocals sounds very evil and demonic.

This band and album is one of the best of the black metal genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Black Metal meets Brian Eno. I love it! December 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a very unusual Black Metal album and definitely not for everyone.

First of all, all you Pantera and Superjoint Ritual fans expecting to hear more of the same here should just turn around and LEAVE. Now. This music is NOTHING like either group so don't even waste your time. I GUARANTEE you will be disappointed. Viking Crown's music is not for you.

Now, for everybody that's left, whether you will like this album or not will depend on how open your mind is, and on how much of a Metal traditionalist you are. If you're one of those nit-picky people who always bases their assessments of albums on the technical virtuosity of the musicians or the perfection of the production values, you probably won't like this album either.

After a first release on which he played all instruments, on this, Viking Crown's second release, Phil Anselmo (billed with tongue in cheek here as "Anton Crowley") adds the talents of his wife Opal Enthroned on keyboards and Killjoy of Necrophagia on vocals.

While the first Viking Crown release was very much oozy, underground-style Black Metal, with the added members this album ventures into new and even more experimental territory.

The album's music's being sandwiched between an intro and outro consisting of samples from the cheesy 1970 Satanism B-movie classic "I Drink Your Blood" gives us a clue that this album may not take itself all that seriously. But what matters for me here is the music, the RESULT. And for me, that result is great.

It ranges from very raw, grungy and hypnotic Black Metal like "The Burning Embers of Mockery" and "The Red Flames of Sin" to delicate and almost ambient sounding instrumental interludes like "Birth of the Devil Fetus".

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the trendy March 31, 2003
Format:Audio CD
An album not for trendy black metal fan's, Viking Crown is pure unholy filthy black metal,made the way it should be,The album start's of with Song of Faduf ,An intro like Black Mass,setting the mood for what's to come. The opening song,Innocence from hell speed's right into hell with fast drumming ,unholy guitar riff's and demonic scream's, The production is dirty and filthy, even the keyboards are evil and cult,not for fan's who love so called black metal with a clean and "safe" production ,this album brings me back to the days long before black metal was pretty and well known ,but to only the elite underground. Songs like "The long and mighty reign of Satan" and "Raped by an Angel" will have you in the church graveyard late at night in no time. Innocence from hell is cult and not for the trendy.
