SAMAEL have always possessed unique style in making music no matter if they create black metal or electro-industrial. Their fans are waiting for a long time their full-length releases, but the band saturate its discography with EPs which do not step aside as wealth. “Lux Mundi” is not mediocre and it does not hide surprises.

A studio industrial rhythm is a base for riffs and voice from the inferno. The electro-machine sound only emphasizes the definiteness of the hellish sentence. The chords of doom are melted with rhapsodic squawking from the supremacy of the dark forces.

Following their path of development SAMAEL indeed are making a full circle in their creative work. The sound of their new album reminds most of their revolutionary for its time album “Passage” (1996). Here we face the same mix of aggressive black metal with keyboards and electronics and the same industrial rhythm and Eastern motives. As if the things have more depth here. The programming is not set on the edge which divides the extreme from the dance styles as it is in the music of SUNDOWN. And the Eastern motives do not reach excelling positions as it happens in the music of the folk metal bands. Balance and stability are the faces of SAMAEL for long years. If someone has reproofs toward “Lux Mundi” then he has reproofs toward SAMAEL in general. They do not betray themselves!
