OLD TEMPLE / GODZ OV WAR
PANDEMONIUM hails from Poland and play old school Black / Death Metal music.
These guys have been releasing crushing music since 1989 and never seem to let up. They
mostly lean their music more towards the Death Metal side, but the Black Metal blankets
their sound all through out. It has that cold harsh and dreary European Black Metal sound
from back in the late '80's and early '90's. There is a real rawness to their sound that also
takes you back to those days. The guitar work at times has that Death / Thrash crossover
sound that reminded me of early BOLT THROWER a lot. They then add in some
crunchy and static like Black Metal sounds too. The vocals are done in a mid ranged
throaty Death Metal growl style with some harsher more gritty Black Metal growls. This
is an absolute must for fans of the early work of MORBID ANGEL, VENOM,
BATHORY, CELTIC FROST, SODOM, BOLT THROWER, SAMAEL &
HELLHAMMER. This is an extended edition of this release that includes the "DEVILRI"
release, a rehearsal / promo from 1990 & a live recording from S'THRASH'YDLO in
1991. If you have not checked out this amazing band yet, this would be the perfect
starting point. Then you can search out their back catalog!
