Album Review

When founding Gorgoroth guitarist Infernus was sent to jail, his lead singer and bassist, Gaahl and King ov Hell, tried to wrest control of the band from him in court. They lost. Now he's out, and Gorgoroth is back with an entirely new lineup featuring Infernus, the band's pre-Gaahl vocalist PeSt, bassist Frank Watkins of Obituary (now going by the "black metal" name Bøddel), and drummer Tomas Asklund of Swedish death metal legends Dissection. Gorgoroth's brand of black metal has often been midtempo, preferring a deathlike rumble to the genre's old-school, head-long sprints. The guitar tones are trebly and razor sharp, of course, but there's a surprising amount of bass and fullness to the mix, and Asklund's drumming is rocksteady and powerful. Pest, who "sang" on the band's classic early albums Antichrist and Under the Sign of Hell, has exactly the kind of voice black metal diehards love — which is to say, he sounds like he's just crawled out of his own grave and is still coughing up maggots and hunks of dirt. Track titles like "Cleansing Fire," "Human Sacrifice," and "Satan Prometheus" may seem to tell the tale here, but other songs like "Rebirth," "Building a Man," and "New Breed" reveal that beneath the genre's put-on nihilism, Infernus is happy and proud to have his band back. This is an album of anthems, whether it's the slow march of "Rebirth," the fist-pumping rock (seriously) of "New Breed," or the almost punk simplicity of the intro to "Cleansing Fire." Gorgoroth have always been a surprisingly varied band, and this is not only a comeback, but one of their most enjoyable albums to date.

Back in Black

Personally i found Gorgoroth's previous album dissapointing, but they certainly have stepped up their game with what i believe is the best black metal album of the year. Every song is excellent and the songs Aneuthanasia and Prayer are really worth a listen. So for any true Black metal fan this is the album for you!

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Guitarists Infernus and Tormentor are the center of the Norwegian black metal outfit Gorgoroth, which took its name from the work of J.R.R. Tolkien. Despite numerous lineup changes, especially in the revolving-door rhythm section, Gorgoroth's basic, few-frills take on the trademark Norwegian sound remained fairly steady, and the group eventually managed to land an international deal with Nuclear Blast. The band's origins date back to 1993, the year its first demo was recorded; the original lineup...
