HARDWARES

SATAN'S HOST

Virgin Sails

(Moribund Records)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 7.5

Never been able to fully, determinedly wrap my head around this frustrating proposition: Harry "Tyrant" Conklin (JAG PANZER) fronting a band that appears black but sounds (among other things, including a hint of black) power/trad/thrash, and puts out albums at an alarming rate, all of them long, consistent, and somewhat forgettable. The confusion furthers with tracks like 'Dichotomy', which flips from near THIN LIZZY guitar work to blast beats, with Conklin's familiar gruff-power vox over top. Normally, that would sound like a disaster, but the neat thing about Satan's Host is they make it work, everything coming across, somehow, as coherent and logical, even if the natural reaction is to run far away. I still wish they'd do some streamlining (shorter songs, shorter albums) so we could have a chance to digest these releases a bit more, and damned if I can remember a single part from any song here once it's not playing. But when it is playing, total metal, totally done well, the workmanlike approach to everything Conklin does all over the place, plus, they've kinda created a niche of their own at this point in to their career (this is album number eight), no small feat.
