SUN WORSHIP "elder giants" CD
vendetta records # 173
released February 21, 2019
"Sun Worship are channeling the very-obvious spirit of American black metal. In fact, there’s nothing that would allude that these gents are from Germany; their sound is incredibly Americanized, which works in spots, while others…well, get out your Cascadian black metal handbook. Sun Worship follows it to the letter.
Four long songs here (of course), each of which pummel and bear down upon the woods-y, quasi-Scandinavian riff approach that the likes of Wolves in the Throne Room, early Krallice, and Ash Borer have come to cement." deadrethoric
[9.6/10] Easily the best sounding blackened death/thrash this side of The Crown's "Eternal Death", with lungs and screams sounding like Tompa (1min05, on ''Moloch'' simply delivers 1 of the most effective ''Go"' ever caught on record this side of Tompa's Disfear. Listen to this if you care about the likes of Destroyer 666, Aura Noir, Krisiun's "Black Force Domain". Cannot say how this will fare at the end of the year compared to other records... but chances are this will still be in my top 10. Synfonic Meadow
Clear vinyl looks amazing, black pressing's great as well. The CD has 4 bonus cuts from their recent splits w/ Abolitionist / King Apathy. The new cuts are from a solid slab of Crusty Blackened Metalcore with Post-Metal cred from the sessions of "Ghost of the Timeless Void". Don't miss the CD if you need the whole lot of cuts, otherwise this is an EP that'S 4 cuts deep with a variety of new melodies and brutality with the crusty overtones of the sound Ancst dishes out consistently.
