Sometimes when a band just does it right, it can be hard to find things to say about them. Craven Idol are a band from the UK who may sound a bit like fellow Brits Scythian because their guitarist/vocalist is also the vocalist and bass player in Scythian, and while that band is a bit more adventurous, Craven Idol are here to hammer down with black steel in a pure homage to classic-era Desaster or Deströyer 666. You get the furious Slayer-inflected riffage, the rasping, venomous vocal attack, and a production job that is raw while still capturing the heaviness and sheer barbaric songwriting on display. If you like the sound of a band that are hitting something right between To Those Who Stand Against Us and Unchain the Wolves with a little Tyrants of the Netherworld thrown in, then this is an album you want to hear.
