Viking Crown - _Unorthodox Steps of Ritual_
(Baphomet Records, 1999)
by: Aaron McKay (10 out of 10)
This should be short and sweet, kiddies! I couldn't have been any more impressed with this -killer- release if "Anton Crowley", Viking Crown's sole member and co-member in Necrophagia, came over to my place and laid down this sensationally brilliant effort before my very eyes. Originally recorded in 1994 under the efficient executive production of Killjoy, also of Necrophagia, "Anton" was -so- ahead of the black metal curve for U.S. bands that it confuses reality. Songs like "Satan Ruler of Earth", "The Judas Goat" and "Invocation Towards the Conjuration of Black Souls" should give you some idea of the direction of Viking Crown's sound. It's all here, boys and girls -- black metal blastbeats, warped and twisted vocal screeches tempered with low-end esophagus work, and tireless, unyielding guitar conflagrations. If you don't like this -- you should stop reading my shit! ALL HAIL VIKING CROWN!
