If I told you a band named Fiends at Feast released an album titled Towards the Baphoment's Throne, you wouldn't have any trouble believing me if I said Blackened Death Metal was the name of the game, right? This Californian quintet has a firm grip on this style and has created an album that is vehemently wrathful while retaining its melodic sensibilities. There's not much here you haven't heard before, but tracks like "After the Gates of Hell" and "Cold Grey Sky," with their combination of rasps and growls, are sure to please while the melancholic "A Despondent Theme to Thy Own Demise" shows Fiends at Feast are not all about thrashing their instruments to within in a inch of their lives. The band varies tempos across Towards the Baphomet's Throne and alternates between riffing and tremolo picking, giving the album a listenability that is missing when bands stick to just one or the other. It may lack lot of originality, but nevertheless Towards the Baphomet's Throne is a solid and well-played disc of European-tinged Black/Death.
