Damn these guys rip it up, sounding like a Nugent riffed metal band with coherent clear vocals. I was surprised by what this is rather than what I thought it was going to be. Seriously, its like a late 70’s BOC like band took their riffs and melded them with mid 80’s metal band with lyrics about evolution being at its peak and end and satan. It’s a really good mix and it really works. Maybe I’m putting some of my own baggage ino this but that’s what happens with these things. But what I’m getting out of this is that we as humans have evolved as far as we can, so this is what you get. So anyone righteous or who follows a godly path cannot expect the rest of us to better ourselves morally because this is where we are at as a society/civilization. So to them, even if we don’t worship evil we might as well, we are on the wrong side of their history. So far into this run of shows this is my favorite release. Phenomenal guitar work.
Check out the guitar solo in “fall of persephone” especially at the end of the song. WOW.
I hope it’s okay to listen to a band called Satan who play old school metal with songs about evolution being at an end and fallen saviours, because I enjoyed the hell out of it.
The end, the very end of civilization is upon us, no more cell phones, dynamite and pre-lubed condoms. It’s over. So why am I, as one of the doomed, rocking out at the edge of the black sea enjoying banging my head and throwing the two devil coronuto? It’s because the band up on the stage at the end of the world party is jamming. Sure they are reporting the findings of how we started our decent and became doomed, reporting back like some sick Ted Koppel hell bent on informing everyone of their follies and part in this exploding lost experiment. Is there time to be saved? Maybe but we don’t care cause the riffs are great, the solo’s kickin and the singing spot on majestic.
That this band formed in 1979 and can still rip it up and produce this kind of wonderful metal, really speaks volumes of the talent in this band. My favorite thing that I listened to for this set of episodes of SLTM (The Podcast).
