I realize that Doom is not everyone’s cup of tea. It is one of those genres of metal that splits fans of the metal world. To some it is too dreary and slow for them to handle
Female fronted doom act Mount Salem make there big label debut with the re-issue of an EP with some new tracks.
Lead single and 7’’ ‘’Laser Enforcer’’ is a hit and best place to start with this album with its straight forward rocking nature and blistering solo before delving into the rest of album which is less straight forward but offers many twists and turns to explore without being inaccessible, which is a hard balance to strike but one the band has perfected over the years.
Interview with Tony Asta (Guitars) (Battlecross)
As someone who is new to BEHEMOTH I’m not even sure I can do this album justice with my review. All I know is that before I knew what hit me I had this fucking thing on REPEAT for half a workday. The Satanist is an album that will utterly consume and compel the listener
‘’ Blood Hungry Thirst’’ Id be surprised – it’s a riff that is them.
It’s hard to know where Sister go next in this style but with a lead singer who is a dead ringer for Wednesday 13 Sister will surely fill the void left by Murderdolls both visually and musically. A gap in the market so to speak that Sister have the chops to fill comfortable.
Having seen the band live I strongly recommend them to any fan of the genre – as the live arena is where this riff based style comes alive and delivers its biggest blows. The special edition of the album comes with a DVD, which shows you what the band can do live and is the best introduction to the band before you venture into the bands catalogue. This edition also comes with a sewn patch, which will ward off posers!
If Flotsam and Jetsam are a band whose career you have followed the whole time, then you may likely enjoy the new album Ugly Noise more than I did. The only moments I really appreciated where those brief shining moments of thrash that I enjoyed so much from their first couple of albums. Sadly it’s just not enough to make me want to listen to this album over and over again.
