Like its debut short-length predecessor, SACRIFICIO's Guerra Eterna bristles and brims with the same strange intensity that earmarked the most unexpected and darkest latitudes of Columbia, Brazil, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary in ancient times. Verily, it is BLACK METAL, vociferously and vigorously, without parentheticals or qualifiers or other weakening aspects of nowadays "black metal." And yet, throughout its staunch songwriting and more strident execution, Guerra Eterna finds SACRIFICIO in an advanced state of evolution, even if that "evolution" is inversely a sort of devolution, shackled as they are to the swirling scuzz that equally nods to the pioneering works of early deathrash legends and the contemporaneous bestiality of elder South American climes. Further, the production on the album is even more rounded and robust than the mini-album: as ever utilizing supposedly "arcane" methods of tube distortion and tape compression, it reveals aggression and mystery equally in a more pronounced manner.
