THE BLACK MORIAH

Casket Prospects

(The Black Moriah)

Reviewed by : David Perri
Rating : 8.0

SLAYER’s influence is legion and, on the eve of Jeff Hanneman’s far too early passing (R.I.P. - let’s hope it’s raining blood in the south of heaven you find yourself in, Jeff), it seems sadly fitting that blackened thrash that has so obviously taken a huge page from Hanneman's metaphorical OAKLAND RAIDERS-inspired riff playbook should make such a strong impact. Featuring ex-ABSU guitar player and vocalist Zawicizuz, Texas’ THE BLACK MORIAH has written and executed an album that is professional, highly listenable and in line with Absu's brand of malignancy, Casket Prospects a record that will impress even the cynical of the black hordes. Though not as eminently soulburning as the precision-on-precision that is the hallmark of a black-thrash band like TYRANN, The Black Moriah is still a deathrace king, if you catch the drift, this group understanding both black and thrash well enough to have long ago discerned what makes each so affecting; in that vein, experience and candour has seemingly dictated that the Black Moriah write an LP that is old-school in more ways than one, prioritizing partially raw delivery, ambiance (but not the frilly symphonic element of that term), speed and a general sense of hyper-collusion and partnership between both of its primary, black-thrash elements. This is impressive and deserves bigger label support.
