Legacy Of The Nephilim

Rated 3.86/5 (77.14%) (7 Votes)

In their early days, Hell-Born were definitely more Black than they are now, as this, their 3rd full-length, is pretty much straight-up Death Metal. Their debut, Hellblast, was a raw attack of Death/Black mayhem, while Legacy Of The Nephilim is more along the lines of Vader.

This is by far more polished and professional than their old stuff, but it is quite a bit more generic. If you've heard Behemoth lately, then you know what to expect here, as Hell-Born serve up the same bubbling satanic Death-Metal brew. There are still some killer cuts on here. The opener "Supreme Race" is pretty bland, but "Devourer Of Souls" is much better, and "The Art Of Necromancy" is a first-rate song. Most of this album is neither here nor there though – not great, but not bad either. This is heavy, solidly produced and expertly played Death Metal, but it is unfortunately no more than that. Hell-Born are a better band than they used to be, but they are not as much fun.
