"[T]he band have gotten their blackened death metal sound down and drive every track home with unrestrained hostility..."

The Marquis De Sade's lurid writings have inspired many works of art, and not a few acts of cruelty, since their publication. BONDAGE GOAT ZOMBIE, the seventh album from Austrian Death/Black metal band Belphegor, qualifies as both. The dark eroticism of De Sade's work is augmented by Belphegor's usual mixture of Satanic and horror imagery, creating an over-the-top exploration of sex and violence intermingled. It doesn't hurt that the music is relentlessly brutal. For instance, "Sexdictator Lucifer" is a slowed-down grind with oppressive, industrial-strength riffing, and "Stigma Diabolicum" pounds at the doors of sanity with an insistent beat and throttling riffs.
