DEMONICAL
Hellsworn
(Cyclone Empire Records)
35:23min

You don’t need to be a master of black magic to know that by the end of the year this album will be a hot candidate for the Death Metal release of the year. And sometimes Death Metal is so easy – you take three CENTINEX members with a hell of experience (good and bad ones if you keep in mind that they released 8 good albums and never achieved the big breakthrough) add a new singer (this time the well known DIABOLICAL shouter Sverker Widgren) and you are ready to unleash the ultimate Death Metal inferno. It took over 2 years until the band was finally ready to record “Hellsworn” and there is not a single song which has not deserved his place on this record. Just imagine a band which is taking the drive of (Swedish) bands like THE CROWN and aggression from (Swedish) bands like DISMEMBER plus the ultimate feeling for the perfect song. To pick up a special song would be blasphemy but DEMONICAL created with ‘Götter Des Nordens’ (with full German lyrics) a song which will definitely blow away every live audience on their coming European tour (with TORTURE KILLER and FACEBREAKER). There are albums which need some time to fully flourish and there are releases (like this one) which kills from minute number one – “Hellsworn” is a great album which needs no further words – just buy this album – bow your head and be ready for the gods of the north. www.cyclone-empire.com, www.myspace.com/thedemonicalhorde, www.demonical.net
