Gorgoroth: Under The Sign Of Hell

Sound — 10
1997 "Under The Sign Of Hell".Well words are just not enough to describe this terrific and terrifying at the same time album.It clearly describes what Gorgoroth are about.Infernus shows his true songwriting skills.His riffs are reaping and beautiful at the same time.From straightforward, angry songs like "Krig" and "Revelations Of Doom" to aggressive, yet very classical sounding "Odeleggelse Og Undergang".In my opinion this is the true Gorgoroth album.

Lyrics — 7
Lyrics, like most of the Gorgoroth lyrics, they are extremely hard to decipher.But it's not the point in black metal, is it? Pest is ripping his larynxes of, his phlogm clegged vocals, scare the hell out of novice listeners.Pest is truly one of the best black metal vocalists.

Overall Impression — 10
The LP sounds great from start to the final rampage anthem, so it's hard to classify any song as better than other.But probably best songs off the album are "Krig","Odeleggelse Og Undergang","Profetens Aperbaring" and "Funeral Prosession".Infernus established himself as one of the best black metal guitarists.Long live Gorgoroth. Oh, and hail satan!

    Learn to spell, and until you can write a proper review with an actual analysis about why they're 'amature', get a life and don't comment.
