Switzerland's Samael has evolved from a run-of-the-mill fl metal band into one of Europe's most original and innovative metal bands by introducing industrial, gothic, and countless other influences into their extreme sound.
The album found Samael incorporating keyboards and different guitar textures to their sound, and a permanent keyboard player (Rodolphe H.) was drafted soon after.
Samael began to find their unique voice on this record, combining swirling keyboard melodies with their brutal guitar attack to create what they called "macabre operettas." The stakes were raised even higher on 1996's groundbreaking Passage, which saw Xytras (now simply Xy) taking over keyboard duties as well as programming all his drum tracks.

  Samael - Free Encyclopedia of Thelema
Samael is etymologized as "Venom of God," since he is sometimes identified with the Angel of death.
Samael is also perhaps the true Personification of Wrath, rather than Satan, seeing as how Samael is also sometimes associated with Asmodeus, the demon of lust and wrath, and Satan is considered a juridical adversary, directed by God.
Samael is also identified with the Coronzon entity of the Elizabethan ceremonial magician John Dee, although the link is only tenuous, and of Aleister Crowley, who changes the Coronzon spelling by adding an unwarranted H after the initial letter thus changing the name to Choronzon.

 Blistering.com Review: Samael - Reign Of Light
Samael had gone very heavy on the synths, and the entire album had a clinical, mechanical quality to it that reminded many of the industrial genre.
It took three years for Samael to complete their next record, and another year and a half to find a label that would release it.
Sure, Reign of Light isn't a return to the Samael sound of 10 years ago, but then again, anyone who expected it to be is a moron.

 Metal Coven - Metal Concert Review - Samael / SYL / Cathedral
This gives Samael’s aesthetic a certain electro quality that wouldn’t be out of place on a bill with acts like Hocico, Front Line Assembly, or KMFDM, but that could present a bit more of a hurdle for a metal audience because, let’s face it, we metalheads tend to be purists.
The show was awesome, but in hindsight it occurs to me that Samael seems unwilling to fully embrace the sonic potential that their current line-up possesses.
One of the main reasons I have never been able to get into Samael’s later recordings is that they sound thin and antiseptic compared to the oppressive atmosphere of Ceremony, and this could be helped immensely by digging up some dirty analog sounds and some crushing gated snares, or even just layering some cool atmospherics.

 Samael - Black Metal
A primary innovator of modern fl metal styles Samael begin as a speed metally old style fl metal band and morphed into a doomy dark metal band, then returned with more commercial fl metal styles.
Review: The slowest of the Samael albums Blood Ritual uses repetition technique to program its listeners with simple riffs and shifting rhythms which are carefully orchestrated through strumming and guitar/drum interaction.
While instrumentation is cleanly defined and exact in its placement it is not the focus of this art, nor is wholly the aesthetic, yet seemingly these parts conspire to suggest a communication to the listener far less evident than its fragments might imply.
