Black Anvil - Triumvirate

Posted on Monday, December 06, 2010

I’ve heard this band described as “Black Thrash,” but essentially the only Thrash here is in the minds of listeners who can’t get past the fact that these guys are also in the Hardcore band Kill Your Idols. Having not heard Black Anvil’s debut, 2008’s Time Insults the Mind, I was admittedly concerned that this would be Black Metalcore or Black Hardcore, whatever such abominations might sound like. That couldn’t be further from reality, as there are zero seconds of Hardcore influence to be found here, even in the vocals (which are generally amazing). These guys do a Von cover (“Veadtuck,” minus the short spoken word intro) for fuck’s sake! If you need your Black Metal to be as fast and raw as possible, then Triumvirate isn’t for you. However, if you prefer memorable songs of varying tempos, and excellent recording and production, then do your ears a favor and check this out.

Their first is Black/Thrash….or more Motorhead style Speed metal to be honest.
