Falling somewhere between David Lynch and Anne Rice, Children Of The Black Sun is a continuous mix of black noise. The failure to break between the seven tracks makes it even more unsettling because the listener never gains a moment of silence. It doesn't help as well, when he mixes in the sound of fires burning (envision hell) and angels singing on "The Fountain Of Fortune", as well as the voice of the creepiest man on earth on "Son Of The Sun".
Children Of The Black Sun is extremely unnerving to listen to in one sitting, but saying that just proves how effective the atmosphere Rice has created is.
