"Galloping Blasphemy" (Metal Blade; 2012)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Harkening back to heavy metal’s early days, Greek duo Satan’s Wrath dole out eight tracks of vintage despair and dread on "Galloping Blasphemy."

Ripe with ripping melodic guitars (“Hail Tritone, Hail Lucifer”) and over-the-top lyrical imagery steeped in evil (“Slaves of the Inverted Cross”), this dastardly duo lovingly conjure vicious vibes emanated from the likes of Possessed, Venom, and Mercyful Fate with similar demonic flair, resulting in an unbridled old school listening experience for all who claim Satan as their master.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
