Arghoslent - Incorrigible Bigotry

Posted on Thursday, September 02, 2010

This is my first encounter with this band, and I really like what I’m hearing. I was expecting Black Metal, but that’s not the case. Try to imagine, if you can, a faster, Thrashier version of old Paradise Lost. I know that sounds crazy, but there is a surprising abundance of Doomy melody interspersed with the double bass-fueled Old School rage that is the soul of this opus. Vocally we have a mid-range, gruff style that is very understandable and patterned around the riffs, almost like a Glen Benton with less depth. Lyrically there seems to be a theme of racism, but I can’t tell if it’s objective or subjective. Doesn’t really matter to me. Everything here is done well, and I’m definitely making it a priority to check out this band’s back catalog. Favorites: “Quelling the Simian Surge,” “Heirs to Perdition,” and “Hereditary Taint.”
