Godgory - _Way Beyond_
(Nuclear Blast, 2001)
by: Chris Flaaten (
The bass drum following deep, pounding guitars... The opening riff leaves no doubt about who we are dealing with. Godgory mixes death metal sounding guitars with both gothic and almost industrial atmospheres, leaving them a true metal bastard. _Way Beyond_ continues much in the same vein as _Resurrection_ [CoC #42]. Apart from the Swano / Moontower synths on the second track, which is by far the strongest one, this is just repeating a formula that already had its flaws. Sure, it is a nice listen at times, but it doesn't -do- anything. Looking at pretty horsies can be time well spent, but it's not an experience until you ride them.
