The songwriting here is outstanding, something that is unfortunately rare for the subgenre. "Slave Morality" is much more than just a collection of barbaric black metal tracks. Songs flow well, progress naturally, and come to a logical (but not overly predictable) conclusion. Profane Order have put together one of the most mature war metal albums this year and I'm excited to see them continue to evolve.
Favorite track: Hexed (Defiling God's Child).
