Staff review by
Sael is a French black metal combo that managed to release during 2010 their debut album, The Sixth Extinction, after an EP and some demos etc. The cover artwork is really beautiful, depicting probably a god of the sea amidst the angry waves, with the first impression being actually very positive.

The Sixth Extinction is nothing new, it contains a formula you've heard before, after all innovative sound in black metal format doesn't happen every day anymore and whenever such matters occur only the inspiration and atmosphere sectors can save the situation. Of course there are some very good songs and/or moments in here, but probably they are not enough to keep the peak at high levels, henceforth the album is slightly above the average black metal releases.
