      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Forgotten Woods' third album (2007).

      'Race of Cain' is a bold and intriguing comeback album for Norway's Forgotten Woods, favouring a lo-fi production quality comparable to many black metal demos from a decade earlier and concentrating more squarely on exposing the hypocrisy of Christianity, culminating in the extended sample of a radio interview with preacher Bob Larson in 'Third Eye,' bookended by the most furious musical performance of the album.

      The weak production does serve to spoil the album from a technical point of view, though it does aid the dingy and intensely raw atmosphere. This mainly presents a problem in the couple of tracks where the style follows a more traditional speedy black metal approach, as 'A Landmine Reprisal' and 'Nightly Paradise' feature instruments that are often little more than a fuzz. The slower, more doom-laden songs are better on the whole, particularly the strong bluesy riffs of 'One Day' and the gloomy atmospheric guitars and female vocals of 'The Principle and the Whip.'

      1. Race of Abel (Intro)
      2. One Day
      3. A Landmine Reprisal
      4. Intolerance is the New Law
      5. Jedem das Seine / Erasing the F**khead Majority
      6. Here, in the Obsession
      7. The Principle and the Whip
      8. Nightly Paradise
      9. Third Eye (New Creature)
