Realms of Hatred

Rated 3.67/5 (73.33%) (3 Votes)

Thulsa Doom, the name of the evil sorcerer played by James Earl Jones in 1982's Conan the Barbarian, is also the name of a new Italian death metal band. Their first effort is an EP titled Realms of Hatred, released by Invictus Productions. The style is not akin to the Floridian, unrelenting speed and "cookie monster" emanations one but more of a late 80s/early 90s thrash, complete with slower, groove riffs and a savage growl that has roots stretching back to Tom G. Warrior. The songs on Realms of Hatred are well played but rather generic death metal so, even with just five full tracks (and a short instrumental), none have stuck in my head after repeated spins. That said, I do think this band could be poised for something bigger and their aspirations are reflected in song titles like "The Gates of Nineveh "Woe to You ... City of Blood". No pedestrian horror/gore for Thulsa Doom. It might not be the most original thing you've heard but that shouldn't stop you from checking out Realms of Hatred.
