Lurker Of Chalice, a name that should ring a bell for the Black metallers out there. Two completely unavailable demos, one hard-to-get full-length. A full-length that cost many Black metaller a dear buck until it was finally re-released by Southern Lord. In my opinion, Lurker Of Chalice's self-titled, début and at the same time also final album was one of the few albums on e-bay that actually deserved to be sold for more than thirty quid/bucks???. Why? Let me tell you why.

Once in the bluest of blue moons, an album comes along that not only reminds one of the reasons why they love music, but gives reasons never before imagined. Rarely - if ever before - have inspiration and craftsmanship, atmosphere and songwriting combined as well as they do on Lurker Of Chalice.

Too much of a fanboy? Probably...
Yet I still feel the obligation to remind our users that one of the modern classics of black metal has just turned a decade old.

It remains as unique and soul-draining as the very day it was released.
No happiness, no sadness, no fear, no hope... Pure emptiness.

Celebrate the void!

Anyone know from where the really short sample on Minions (6:22) is taken from?

According to my google-jitsu, The sample is a dude saying ""desecration of Christ" and it comes from The Exorcist: The Beginning.

The sampling is unbelievable strong on this album. Probably my favorite album in that regard. The unnerving crows in the beginning, The foreboding sample from The Omen on "Spectre As Valkerie Is", Silvia's sample of course is an absolute masterpiece. I wonder if the line "Conquer or Serve?" from "Vortex Chalice" is a sample or just Wrest's voice heavily manipulated, either way... Chills all over my spine! <3

Thanks for the info!

Agree about the samples. I think atmospheric/doomy BM could really benefit of more sampling. Just add a nihilistic movie quote, some reverb, and the song instantly becomes better!
