DEVIL LEE ROT
DEVIL LEE ROT
At Hell's Deep
(Iron Fist Productions)
43:09min

Besides working under the monikers AUTOPSY TORMENT and PAGAN RITES one of Sweden's most active underground Metalheads creates vicious sounds under the name DEVIL LEE ROT, where he does not go for the deadly thrashing direction of AUTOPSY TORMENT nor the blackish, old MAYHEM - inspired sound of PAGAN RITES, but destroys posers worldwide with a hellish entertaining mixture of Heavy Metal in the early 80s vein and old BATHORY - like vocals. Blessed with a crushing production, varied songwriting, riffs, leads and hooks that will make you raise your Metalfist up to the blackened sky and spill the beer all over the room while trying to sing and drink together at the same time (this is the effect this album ultimately has), make "At Hell's Deep" one of these albums you'll love to put on when partying with some friends! In some songs the master himself (intentionally) sounds even more out of tune as Quorthon on his Viking albums and thus comes across pretty ridiculous, and, of course, "At Hell's Dead" turns out to be a highly humorous album (like e.g. the utterly cult METALUCIFER), but the music and production are definitely of serious quality. Early IRON MAIDEN, heroes of the NWOBHM come to mind while listening to this stuff, though the fucked up vocals go into a different direction. Well, you either love or hate this guy, I think he's absolutely great and musically DEVIL LEE ROT even has a bit more to offer than the aforementioned bands featuring his characteristic voice and cliché - filled lyrics. To say it with FLOTSAM & JETSAM "people come alive banging their heads" when DEVIL LEE ROT delivers his newest slab of Swedish blackened Heavy Metal, raise the horns! www.devilleerot.tk
