If it's done well, then yes. If it's some kind of "where are the songs?, metal ain't what it used to be, nu-thrash is shit" type of Malirant, then no.

SAMAEL - Lux Mundi

Once lauded as the future of metal, Samael's career hasn't quite reached the heady heights of contemporaries such as, er, Moonspell... but nevertheless 2004's majestic 'Reign of Light' remains one of the finest examples of big gay space disco metal the world has ever seen. Which made it all the more shocking when 2009's impenetrable, tuneless, black metal fiasco 'Above' hit the racks. I mean, what were they thinking? Still, never ones to make life easy for themselves, Samael have shifted the tectonic plates once again and returned for the most part to their previous incarnation as energetic, slightly Rammsteinesque Euro-metal for the thinking man.
Fans of 1996's legendary 'Passage' may find 'Lux Mundi' more to their liking than most of Samael's post Y2K output, as the band seem to have trimmed back some of the dancier moments, instead choosing once more to stomp with jackboot precision (most notably on 'Mother Night'), while reintroducing the sense of melody and songwriting flair which was noticeable only by it's absence on the tedious 'Above'. That said, the blastbeats of that previous album remain to some degree on album closer 'The Truth is Marching On', albeit used in moderation and (surprise, surprise) therefore to much greater effect.
It's slightly doubtful whether Lux Mundi will ever come to be considered a classic Samael album, but it is certainly a welcome return to the unique style the band have been forging for the last decade and a half.

7/10

Do you agree with half-fists? If not, would you recommend rounding up or down?

I think that's fair... 7/10 would be wrong to score at 4 fists... I'll accept that and stop using half fists going forward.

If something's 3 fists, I still tend to refer to it as 3K as since time immemorium me and my mates have always referred to any average/middle of the road etc as 3K's. Yes, it refers to Kerrang, but, that's the way it is...

This. ;)

3 K's is better than 7.5 type of silliness. 3 fists is a good, solid album but nothing spectacular. It's by no means a write off. 2 is where the poo really begins. :( It sounds like Mali's giving a 3 fist review there. "7"!!!

And 5 does not mean a "perfect" album. It means excellent, not flawless. Stoopid not giving 5's or 10's. You can always find a flaw or a dip somewhere in any music, if you want to look. It's the same reason why arts students never get 100% in tests, but maths and physics students do. I mean if it's significantly more than very good, it's 5 fucking fists.

Rant over.


....for now.

New Samael is 3 fists then.

But that's not right because 'Above' got a 7, and it was shit. And lest we forget some mong gave ROL 4/10! Which is two fists! Puleez!

Only just noticed (shows how much I read the mag) the album was already reviewed in the latest issue.
They gave it 7.5/10

Ha. At least they scored it higher than 'Above', which is correct.
