An album comprised of the strongest and most fierce material written in the bands 8 year existence. Originally formed in early 2002 by S. and Hellpig, both active in the extreme metal underground since the early nineties, the filthy ugly beast that is HORNED ALMIGHTY was puked from the gutters of Hell initially as a duo. First intended as a side project, HORNED ALMIGHTY quickly became first priority and shortly after the first primitive demo had been recorded, the drum-throne was seized by Harm. Mixing the primitivism of CELTIC FROST with the aggression of DISCHARGE and the ugliness of AUTOPSY, all drenched in the eerie and disturbing rot of early nineties black metal.
Horned Almighty's work has been described as "black & roll," which is a valid description because thrashy tracks such as "In Jubilation and Disgust," "Blessing the World in Pestilence," and "Fountain of a Thousand Plagues" combine black metal themes and black metal intensity with the sort of high-speed infectiousness that Motorhead are known for. Motorhead, arguably, were the first thrash metal/speed metal band; they were greatly influenced by punk during a pre-Slayer, pre-Megadeth, pre-Metallica era in which punk was still being ignored by most headbangers. Headbangers who like being reminded of black metal's punk and thrash metal/speed metal roots should give a close listen to this corrosive sledgehammer of an album. - All Music4/5
