Description

»Devilment 2: The Mephisto Waltzes« is a cracked and crazed rollercoaster ride through a twisted universe populated by grotesque monsters, deviant freaks and irresistible, ghoulish heroines. As lyrically vivid as it is musically mesmerizing, it veers from the ornate speed metal attack of 'Life Is What You Keep From The Reaper' and the grandiose stomp of virulent love song 'Hitchcock Blonde' to the schizophrenic punk-metal circus of the epic 'Shine On Sophie Moone' and the razor-sharp melodic thrust of 'Entangled In Our Pride', eerily quick on its scabby heels and barely pausing for breath along the way. Fans of Dani’s work in CRADLE OF FILTH will find plenty to relish here, of course, but DEVILMENT are a wholly distinctive unholy force, with an intuitive understanding of the value of shattering every mirror and stepping through into an alternate dimension where rulebooks smoulder and Hell’s gates are thrown open for an unhinged but celebratory knees-up.
