This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Perúvian black/death metal band Two Face Sinner. Across that span of years they have released an EP and three albums of satanic blasphemy, and have shared the stage with the likes of Rotting Christ, Nargaroth, God Dethroned, and Belphegor.
Two Face Sinner‘s most recent album, Spiritual Nemesis, was released in 2020 by Non Serviam Records (on CD and digitally), and as a reminder of its diabolical allure we are today premiering a lyric video for the record’s second track, “Satanic Altar“.
In the words of the song, voiced by vicious inflamed snarls and abyssal spoken words, Two Face Sinner invite you to the altar of Satan, to bless yourself with blood and to embrace death. In the music, the sharp pop and clatter of the snare lights a fire under the listener’s pulse while the bass undulates like a serpent and the riffing creates a dense shroud of boiling sound that seems to channel both grim cruelty and fearsome reverence, both exaltation and despair.
As the riffing cycles over and again, it becomes an increasingly immersive and consuming experience, but eventually changes. A gripping guitar lead surfaces, creating a sensation of misery, which deepens as the drums briefly vanish, and then the song accelerates again, the piston-like snare hammering even faster. A sinuous melody slithers through the sonic storm, worming itself ever deeper into the listener’s head and propelling the song to a ravishing crescendo.
The album is still available for purchase via the links below. We’ve also provided a stream of the band’s lyric video for “Invoking Evil” and a full stream of the Spiritual Nemesis album.
