Gloria Satanas! - 92%

Nokturnal_Kommando, December 12th, 2007

Thou Art Lord is as you may know a black metal band with some of the most famous "stars" of the Greek metal scene, and you can see that with their two main members like Sakis the vocalist of Rotting Christ and Magus the vocalist of Necromantia.

Now the review: Orgia Daemonicum is the latest effort from the Greek black metal kings, widely known for their main bands. This album shows that there is still plenty of good metal out there, and that the scene still alive. One of the most interesting things about this album is the sound quality. It's raw but at the same time it manages to sound clear, and the listener won't have problems because every instrument can be heard.

Another interesting thing about this album are the lyrics. The lyrics are written in a Satanist way (Which is good) and sometimes it makes the listener feel like they're in the middle of a ritual calling for Lucifer, like in the song "Royal Invocation of Apophis". The guitar work is outstanding and these guys never seem to run out of riffs and it's also needless to say that these riffs are catchy as hell. The drumming in this album is totally kick ass. Akis did a wonderful job on the drums. Every song is well played, and it's not only blast beats like many black metal bands do most of the time. Last but not least is the cover of Onslaught's Power from Hell; this is the kind of cover that in my opinion metal bands should be doing covering some awful pop bands.
