Church of Death is the second album from the Swedish death metal band Vanhelgd. In November 2010 an EP called “Praise the Serpent was released consisting of two songs from the same recording session as “Church of Death” but with another mix. On Church of Death Vanhelgd develops their aggressive aspects as well as a more ominous manifestation with a felling of doom. The album haunts the cemetery as well as submerging the listener into the black abyss. There are some rather clear differences between “Church of Death” and “Cult of Lazarus” but also a lot of similarities. Both albums have a kind of shattered personality in common, but “Church of death” has a more focused and elaborated arrangement and mood within each song.
