How did I get to know the band: The Metal Devastation Radio sent me another album that I am now discussing. How do I find the disc: It's more real fun. Let's listen to it: OPENING THE GATES OF HELL is a short intro that probably illustrates the title. Really well done and nicely introduces the album. LUCIFER'S HERALD wastes no time and presses immediately. After a few bars the singing starts, which comes across as really dark croaking and goes well with the music. A few solos are interspersed here and there, but here the sound reminds me more of Thrash Black than Black / Death. But so be it. ONE GRAM OF YOUR SOUL starts with strings, which are soon joined by drums. A very dry bass is added briefly before the guitars take over the melody of the strings. The song remains rather calm and gloomy, as if a coffin was carried to it. The vocals do the rest and every now and then the strings, probably one or more cellos, come to the fore. Not bad so far. In the middle, for example, the tempo increases briefly, but this mainly comes from the drums, the rest are not impressed by it. NECROSCIENCE is really picking up speed again and this is where the Death Metal part comes into its own. Grinding riffs, angry bones and a really dense atmosphere. Between the verses there are atmospheric, solemn parts before the beating starts again TEMPLE OF SUFFERING reminds me of Patch Black Box by Carach Angren for some reason. At least from the beginning, but here it doesn't continue pounding, but almost epic in the lower mid-tempo. Not bad either. Gladly more of it. LORD OF HALLUCINATIONS is opened by nasty background noises and very high-pitched screams, before it continues slowly but powerfully. Here the text is spoken almost more than sung. Here you could almost believe that you are hallucinating and that a demon is screaming in your face. IN THE DEVIL'S EMBRACE finds its way back to the club and brutally cuts its way through the ear canals. I just like such unstoppable songs, even if they have a quiet part in the middle like this one. That gives you the opportunity for a sip or two of beer. THE FEARFUL ONE certainly has potential, but I'm missing something here. Unfortunately the song is only mediocre. Fill material for a playlist, but not that I would put on specifically. So on to the next song WEAKNESS ISN'T BREATHLESS starts with really dark growls, which speak the intro here, before they sing the rest of the lyrics, again a hard and fast track that I really enjoy again. SILENCE IS CONSENT (SODOM COVER) ends the album with a strong cover. I prefer to stick with the original, but you can also give your version. Conclusion: You are welcome to listen to that. Here's a clear recommendation for friends of Black and Death Metals. Even if there is a small low point shortly before the end. - Full Metal Mayhem
