“The music of Veneror displays a strong Finnish influence, and often the music and passages bear striking resemblance to bands such as Satanic Warmaster, Horna and Sargeist. This especially so with the heavy atmosphere that constantly shrouds the music, with the furiously trem-picked riffs displaying some influences from Norwegian forefathers like Mayhem, though Veneror‘s music is markedly less harsh, with much more despondent emotions invested, shown through the rather depressive melodies that are present. There are even moments where one is reminded of bands such as Drowning the Light, such as the clean guitars towards the end of The Wings of the Daimon Sethos.
Yet, throughout the album, drummer Amaymon manages to keep an aggressive edge with the energetic drumming, with his drumming style being rather similar to more aggressive black metal bands such as Surrender of Divinity. And it is this fusion that helps to spice up the album a little bit, providing much of the energy to what would otherwise have been a rather boring album with the repetitive nature of the music on Percussimus Foedus cum Morte.
Like their Finnish counterparts, Percussimus Foedus cum Morte has a thick production that helps to accentuate the atmospheric components of the music, with that raw sound that ensures that the music of Veneror remains as authentic as possible. Certainly an album that is pretty enjoyable, and a promising debut for this Italian outfit.” – (heavymetaltribune.com)
