Sun in the House of the Scorpion

Rated 4/5 (80%) (15 Votes)

This is a hell-blasting slab of Black Metal made by the guys in Drudkh, who decided to stop norking around and really kick ass for a change. Make no mistake, I enjoy Drudkh's earlier albums, but their recent output has been self-indulgent and rather dull. Thus my enjoyment of this, an album that seems designed to piss of their pants-wetting fanboys.

You will read bad reviews of this from Drudkh fans who want this to be more of the same, but heed them not. This is a delightful disc of stinking Black Metal with a ripping guitar sound and bellowing demonic vocals highlighting some killer music. Far from atmospheric tremolo strumming, this is chunky and grimy, very reminiscent of first-wave pleasures like Sodom, but with a definite modern approach in the sharp guitar work and the blasting drums. A barrage of evil music straight from the mouth of Hell.
