"Enslaved in Darkness" (SelfMadeGod; 2005/2012)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
A re-release of their 2005 CD, Stormcrow’s five-track offering, "Enslaved in Darkness," melds crust, thrash, death, and punk to form a dastardly din.
This now-defunct Oakland, CA squad doles out a no-nonsense barrage of chunky riffs and thick rhythms with a bellicose, throat-spitting vocal venom, creating a potpourri of metallic goodness (“Baleful Conception”).
Stormcrow merges elements of Bolt Thrower, Electric Wizard, Entombed, and Amebix to create a catastrophic cacophony worth spinning over and over.

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.
