DESASTER
THE ARTS OF DESTRUCTION
METAL BLADE

Veteran German quartet Desaster return with their seventh studio album, the 11-track excursion into evil entitled THE ARTS OF DESTRUCTION. Teeming with metal bravado unafraid to reveal its demonic side, this seasoned unit’s latest foray into the fire unleashes a ferocious assault of galloping riffs and menacing vocal belligerence sent from below (“Phantom Funeral”). Borrowing heavily from the darker edge of the metal spectrum, specifically from the mid 80’s when Mercyful Fate, Celtic Frost, and Venom were the standard for extreme (“Troops of Heathens”), Desaster maintains the primal percussive poundings and guttural grunts and groans needed in order for their vicious vintage tones (“The Splendour of the Idols”) to contain both the force and the fury to be worthy soldiers in Lucifer’s underworld legion. -Mike SOS
