Yeeeaaargh! Motherfucking Black Fucking Pirate Metal! The centerspread of the booklet says "Recorded In A Fuckin' Cave!" under a woodcut of a pirate ship at sea, and that pretty much sums up this almighty ass-stomper of an album. This is raw, brutal Venom worship packed with riffy goodness backed up by barbaric drumwork and croaking, horrific vocals that are not totally unintelligible. Smashing bits of hellish fun like "Corpsebreath", "The Barbaric City" and "Lightning Bolt" thug out the kind of riffs Hellhammer used to crush back before they got all arty. Cauldron Black Ram may have a weird name, but they crank out the sort of heavy pure evil that reminds me of why underground metal is always the best. Lovers of raw, feral destruction like Morningstar or Ritual should not miss this flag-hoisting, gut-ripping slab of joy. Highly Recommended.
