Dios de Dioses

An Album By


Review by

This review is specific to the extremely limited, Spanish-language release from these Mexican black metal kings, as Bombworks is set to release the full-length record later this year. Black metal missionaries Hortor deliver exactly what you expect on this release – the brutal aural assaults they’ve become known for, juxtaposed with bits of flowery finery – the classic “beauty and the beast” approach to black metal.

Special guests include A Hill to Die Upon’s Michael Cook on drums and female vocals by Xanatzin Elkanah to counterpoint Azmaveth’s shrieks and growls on the song “Mexico Tierra de Dios.” Keep an eye out for the official release of Dios de Dioses.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
