ATROCITY – MASTERS OF DARKNESS (Massacre Records)

Review by Filip Priem: I just received Atrocity’s new EP and thought to hear some old school doom/gothic metal but that was not what I heard. Atrocity is going back in time in the style of their first albums, real old school death metal with a fantastic production !!!!!

First Song “Masters Of Darkness” crushes your skull from the first second you listen. “Menshenslachthaus” sounds even better, aaaaaarrrgggghhhhhhhhhhhh. Third track “Gates To Oblivion” is a raw mid-tempo track with some gothic choir background vocals and sounds awesome ! So we’ve come to the last track called “Devil’s Covenant” which is in the same style of “Gates To Oblivion”, raw and the pace reaches a mid-tempo level.

I will end this review to tell you guys “Masters Of Darkness” is definitely worth buying …… I hope their next full album will be in the same style and sound. http://www.atrocity.de/

My rating: 85/100 (Good in its own genre, recommended for those hooked on it)
