Review of "Immortalis Factus" by Pagan Dreams

"Antiquus Scriptum is a great band of the finest Portuguese black metal with many pagan and symphonic touches. Right now it is hard to get me a comparison with another band, so I guess that says enough of them. The publication at hand is this demo LP called "Immortalis Factus" a piece of editing nothing more and nothing less than an hour and ten minutes long, without a doubt a very ambitious edition. Well, as happens in these cases, the band is guilty of sins of pride and no false humility. Impressive record, with a measured sound, care to detail, it sounds very well considering that they produced themselves, with some tunes that range from the furious attacks of black metal to beautiful instrumental passages with ancestral voices, music at times reminds you Kaatharsys. Sing halfway between English and Portuguese, and guttural voices. The first highlight a striking good 16-minute track called "Procemiun / A Viking Belief", full of atmosphere and musicality. Also especially noteworthy is the ninth cut "I.N.R.I. - Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaedorum" with a pleasant aftertaste of the old school black metal, scratching (or almost scratch) in the thrash metal. And the instrumental interludes are a great delicacy..." (Pagan Dreams Blogspot)
