SATAN`S HOST

SATAN`S HOST
Satanic Grimoire: A Greater Black Magick
(Moribund Cult)
69:25min

This is one of those very few bands that went on from playing Power / Speed Metal to a brutal Black / Death Metal. This is actually their 4th recording in the new style, and if you have not heard them before, I suggest you to do it now. I have their last CD around "Burning The Born Again", besides some other previous recordings too (with their new style) and few things have changed. They still play a guitar driven form of Black / Death Metal, comparable to newer BEHEMOTH or early MORBID ANGEL, with sometimes quite long songs, and a good variation of speed. Still, I feel that the songs tend to be longer than what they really need to be, and sometimes, the mid-tempo speed they at time abuse, make things sound similar. Patrick Evil is still a very accomplished guitar player, and once in a while his terrific riffs are sure enough to catch your attention with his Heavy Metal sound, and Eli Elixir's vocals are also very powerful and quite good. They are also cursed with a great heavy production. Probably if they choose to arrange the order of the songs in other way, it will be more interesting, and without a doubt they need to do them shorter; sometimes after a monster riff, they sound like they don't know what to do to make the song longer and they lost a bit of momentum. I still think that the band has not shown us what they can be really capable of. They have the riffs there, they can execute the music pretty tight, yet they have to be more direct. It is obvious that bands like SLAYER and MERCYFUL FATE are their influences, more so than more modern bands, so if they keep it straight to the point, do shorter songs and use a bit more of speed, they can kill without mercy. As it is, it is above average, and I suggest you to check them out. I am sure, that within time, they will deliver the monster album they are capable. So far a new album is on the way, so I will keep an evil eye watching for that one. www.moribundcult.com
