Gospel Of The Horns 'Ceremonial Conjuration' review


GOSPEL OF THE HORNS
'Ceremonial Conjuration'
(Invictus)

No strangers to the mini album format, much less to delivering crushingly effective black/thrash, GOTH are finally back from their self-imposed exile. Dust off you bullet-belts, devotees of the vile Aussie sound, 'Ceremonial Conjuration' is a proud addition to an already impressive cataloque of metal this band has produced over the years. The new songs strike the listener with an immense atmosphere of darkness and destruction, which is no small feat itself but the band did the extra mile and made the tunes super catchy and memorable to boot. In a live setting this stuff should work wonders, there's this undeniable 'instant headbanging' factor one just can not possibly resist. Damn, the malign vocals by Howitzer are just what music of such proportions requires, Masochist's guitar work and tone is spot on and you should all know by now what an intense drummer Mersus (Destroyer 666) is . No need  picking a personal fave tune, all of them (including the closing cover of 'The Fog' by Goatlord) stand on their own, making this an essential purchase for those who prefer their metal rocking, raw and free of trends and fads. [8,5]
