Gorgoroth – Antichrist (1996)

I’d always put off listening to earlier Gorgoroth because I saw them live with Pest about a decade ago and found them to be pretty awful. Little did I realise however that the vocals on this record are done by yet another madman called Hat (yes), so I finally spun this up.

Of course, I’m an idiot, and this does not disappoint. Antichrist is black metal of the savage and punishing variety. It’s not quite Beherit, but it’s pretty savage and there are some glorious riffs. The production is dense and not too hollow. I just wish the cover art was a bit more inspiring.
