The Luciferian Crown

Rated 4.33/5 (86.67%) (9 Votes)

Archgoat haven't been the most prolific band in terms of full-length albums but they certainly make up for it with EPs and splits. This time we only had to wait three years since 2015's The Apocalyptic Triumphator to be beaten into submission by their new opus, The Luciferian Crown. A lot of bands blend death and black metal, but Archgoat do a knockout job of making it all flow seamlessly on this album. Speedy, heavy, thundering death metal shares the stage with black metal that's more on the atmospheric side of things and it's just amazing how they alternate between styles while not falling into the all-too-common trap of having something that sounds like two different albums. It's dark, it's heavy, it's varied, and it just begs for repeated listen. Whatever is in the water in Finland, these guys have been drinking a lot of it.
