SIXTH CHAMBER, THE: Crippled Souls: CD

Considering the Christian Death connection (remember the baby doing all that disturbing howling on the Ashes album? That was Gitane and Valor’s son, Sevan, who’s all growed up and playing geetar here), it’s not too surprising that this handily falls within the death rock pigeonhole. More Voodoo Church push than Christian Death theatricality, there’s a nice bit of drive in the drums to keep the tempos from getting lethargic and the songs, while not yet at the “mind-blowing” level, are nonetheless strong enough to keep ‘em from sinking into a quagmire of total facelessness.
