LYCHGATE

Lychgate

(Mordgrimm)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 8.0

Hold on a second: "haunting" keyboards (hey, remember that old Disney 'Haunted House' 7" from when you were a kid in the '70s?), silly get-ups, treble-heavy riff work... is this black metal? What, do I look like David Perri? Anyway, this UK-based band know what they're doing: the blasting works good (see 'Against The Paradoxical Guild'), some of the more off-kilter guitar work is awesome as well (see the same tune for a great combo of both), helping to create an identity for this gang (featuring dudes from ESOTERIC and LUNAR AURORA). I can never dig the screamy black metal vocals, but I'll still put this above lots of current BM bands for the ability to balance slower, melodic parts (the insane 'Sceptre To Control The World'), dynamics and epic builds ('Triumphalism'), and head-down blasting and unhinged guitar work, making this (thankfully) not too atmospheric but also not deathly raging, instead occupying a mature and well thought-out middle ground that most black fans will enjoy.
