ARGHOSLENT / STARGAZER
Bastard Son Of One Thousand Whores - Mob Of The Howling / Magikkian (Split)
A feedback noise leads us to the sad and slow tune of the beginng of ARGHOSLENT's contribution to this split that turns into raw uptempo Death Metal with various riff changes and spiced with some traditional Metal elements, evident for example in the soloing. Check out the reviews of both albums here, then you will know about their style. Productionwise the sound is absolutely fitting as although being raw and unpolished it is rather clear.Contact: ARGHOSLENT, P. O. Box, 393, Oakton, VA 22124, USA.

I have been anticipating something new from STARGAZER after the split CD (review also to be found here) as drummer Phonix Chrysalis left the band. This duty has been taken over by The Serpent Inquisitor (gyttaar, voyce and verse) who did an excellent job, being accompanied by The Great Righteous Destroyer (bass gyttaar, voice). Although the material is not as ferocious as before they know to convince with the new song 'Magikkian'. Their style still comprises elements of Death and Thrash and a somehow progressive edge with vocals alternating between a harsh Black Metal voice and a dark throat. 'Amidst Fireflies And Haunted Trees' is a beautiful moody accoustic pice written in 1994. Contact STARGAZER: PO Box 182, Ingle Farm, 5098, South Australia.
