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.

Customer Reviews

great album

jimjames what exactly was your purpose in coming to review this album? If you listen to an album and genuinely don't like it, please post a review and give your opinion. However, to come and make those kinds of comments is a complete waste of time for anyone who really wants to know what people think of the album. Go back to Nickelback and leave us alone.

P.S. Great album and worth a purchase for any fans of Emperor, Mayhem, etc.

Sounds like Gorgoroth again!

I've waited a long time for this...something Twilight and Ad Majorem didn't deliver. Nice return towards the old sound, and especially great to hear Pest again!!!

A Rebirth

I see many comments concerning former vocalist Gaahl, and his recent coming out. Why is the relevant? Get over yourselves, and Gaahl. Gorgoroth now rests within the hands of it’s rightful owner, Infernus.
Anyway, this is definitely a rebirth of the band, as evidenced by the song of the same name, “Rebirth”, in which Pest roars over a calm in the storm of battle “REBIRTH OF GORGOROTH!”. This moment is surely the thesis of this album, and a reminder to the metal world that Gorgoroth will forever be a thorn in their side. Pest, the re-recruited vocalist is back in action, and the rest of the band is surely kicking. The sound returns to an Antichrist/Pentagram sounding era of true Norwegian black metal. Excellent production (Very clear, but may cause elitist to moan because it doesn’t sound like it was recorded in someone’s bathroom). For black metal, the technical proficiency for this album is obviously passing, don’t expect tech-death virtuosos, here, but Infernus is a very innovative guitarist who understands groove, riffs, melody, and atmosphere well. The overall feel of this album is very old school and evil. Highlights for me were “Satan-Prometheus”, “Rebirth”, and “New Breed”. If you are a new disciple of Gorgoroth, or a long time fan, this album should be a part of your black metal, or metal collection. 5/5

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...
