OUT NOW on Hells Headbangers: Comes with a 8-page lyrics booklet. The CD version features two songs NOT available on the LP version ("Resurrection of Depravity" and "Vama-Marga") and the LP version features two songs NOT available on the CD version ("I Am the Way" and "Above the Lamb").
After polluting minds and corrupting souls with their self-titled debut album, THE ROYAL ARCH BLASPHEME return to wage war on the holy with the cryptic _II.? Once again the vision of PROFANATICA guitarist/songwriter John Gelso and KRIEG mastermind N. Imperial but now expanded into a full lineup, THE ROYAL ARCH BLASPHEME's highly anticipated "II" expands upon ideas from their original template: the primitivism is cruder, the sludge more volcanic, the blasphemy more vile, the production fuller and more devastating. What results is sickened (and sickening) miasma of black metal filth that only THE ROYAL ARCH BLASPHEME can create... bow down in obeisance.

I bought this album and their self-titled album on a whim. (For $3.33? Who am I to complain at that price!?) They're both great albums but II in particular stands out for being so raw and primal. If you listen carefully, you can hear the microphone colliding with things throughout the album. It's such a raw album that they didn't edit these things out and somehow I love this CD even more for that.
