A surprisingly strong sophomore effort that won't disappoint discerning death-metal fans.
Released: Feb 8, 2005
Reign of Light may still not be what aficionados of Ceremony of Opposites, or even Passage-era Samael, would wish to hear, but there's also no way to accuse the band of selling out given its return to more metallic fare.
Released: Jun 1, 2007
Samael certainly has an interesting and unique sound. The vocals are somewhat grungy, black metal style, yet the synthesizers bring a whole new level to the music.
Worship Him, the debut release from Swiss death-metal combo Samael, is about as rough and raw as it gets, and shows no sign of the band's subsequent evolution into one of Europe's most innovative extreme metal bands.
