TWILIGHT OF THE IDOLS
Gorgoth returns in a maelstrom of metal, as this long-running black metal troupe have put out its most definitive release with TWILIGHT OF THE IDOLS. From the opening chords of "Procreating Satan", you know you're in for an eight-track demonic voyage, and the quartet does not relent nor disappoint. Evoking the dark side of life, Gorgoroth's convictions are not a shtick; the band's close ties to the occult is quite real, and the music which the band makes echoes the beliefs which Gorgoroth holds true. Be afraid of these virtues, but be more afraid of the durable yet devilish din that this Norwegian powerhouse makes. Traditional black metal hasn't sounded this foreboding since the early days of Bathory.
