Ordained - _The Second Coming_
(Sinternational, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (7.5 out of 10)
Sounding like a really down and nasty (even vicious) garage rock band, Virginia act Ordained manage to score points with their infectious choruses, singer The Reverend's tantalizing vocals and the downtuned guitars and hard-hitting rhythm section bringing up the rear. While the music might be typical hate-filled ditties, spurned on by aggressive cries and sinister Sabbath-like riffing, the surprising winning factor here is Ordained's ability to add emotion and atmosphere to the songs. Each song has its own emotion, but still each song is given 100% attention (i.e. "Beloved", "Destroyer" and "I Am the One") as it blares out of your speakers. A little bit shock rock, a little bit rock 'n' roll and a whole lot of devil worshipping seems to help fuel Ordained's need to get their message across. Message received, guys.
