Lorde of All Desires

The Scent of Malevolence (Root-O-Evil)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. Lorde of All Desires must really know what they are doing. They have worked themselves quite a buzz over the years, through the appearances at many metalfests, and by much deserved word of mouth. Their sound is that of Americanized black metal, with death and thrash influences. More specifically, they are highly addictable in their catchy, simplistic keyboard passages, with cymbal-friendly percussion, fast heavy guitarwork, and textured vocals including low growls and distorted raspy yells. They have a certain commercial quality to them that may displease traditional black metal fans, but all else should enjoy this dark release. -- Lady Enslain
