Adore-Infamy of the Black Legions


Just released earlier this month, "Infamy of the Black Legions" is the hour + long debut from New Orleans-based Adore. I stumbled across this (digital-only) album, which is cold and unsettling, by random accident and found it quite peculiar. This 8-track collection finds Adore, which is one-woman project from the hands of Shantell Daggs, casually strolling about, hand in hand with some one's personal demons mind you, in the nightmarish realm of depressing black metal! This underground, "demo quality" self-release seems to come from a hellish place where demons delight themselves with the screaming of those unlucky, damned souls who were foolish enough to fall right into their ghoulish clutches. Adore's "Infamy of the Black Legions" is the soundtrack of  millions dying in pain and is for those metal fans who find group's like Bathory just way too normal and "commercial"! For whatever reason this (somewhat) crust-flavored recording had me envisioning Louisiana voodoo while it also left me scrambling to find just the right passage to express it's full impact on me. With that I remembered this one verse from Revelations: "I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him"! Adore's "Infamy of the Black Legions" is raw and not for the lightweights out there!
