Dios de Dioses

An Album By

Hortor

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.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
