The 3rd release from Larva ov Cum, with all the hallmarks of LoC - mainly, clean vocals and political/satirical lyrics. As far as I can understand, the lyrics are mostly a satire of the current political situation in Italy, and the album title is an apparent homage to the Irish Republicanism. Personally I was never a big fan of the IRA; moreover, I think the prayer of IRA (a predominantly Catholic organization) isn't the best choice for an intro of a black metal album. (as it turned out, "ira" is just Italian for "anger", so I probably wasn't right in my guess. Well, nevermind) However, if you liked two previous LoC albums, I think you'll like this one as well.


  1. Thank you for the review,your site is truly the manifest of RABM

    IRA an italian word (english traslation is maybe "anger") and the cover is a "remake" of RoteArmeeFraktion's flayer.

    1. Thank you too, for the explanation as well. Probably I wasn't right in my guess...
