GRAVEHILL: Practitioners of Fell Sorcery: LP

Boy, them Gehenna kids are mighty prolific these days. By my reckoning, this is the third or fourth release I’ve come across that features a member or two of that band. This time they delve into the black/death/trash metal realm with six songs that recall the best of the Teutonic speed metal bands like Kreator, Destruction, and especially Sodom. This style seems to be making a bit of a comeback in recent years, and this should rightfully rank as one of the better—and faithful—of the modern installments, right down to lyrics like, “Archaic pages shall tell/In the black book of the earth/Demonic harbingers of the end/Necrosummoner—bring forth hordes of the dead…”
