Battle Helm Rating

I keep repeating myself but I basically like it when it goes fast. I know that it is harder to play slow and do it good than it is to play fast but nonetheless, I like my music fast. Or so I think. But then I realize that I love doom metal, I love atmospheric, melancholic metal and none of that is fast. So yeah, I am a contradiction. Which brings us to Spain’s BARBARIAN PROPHECIES. This is a really heavy death metal band that at times aren’t the quickest of the lot. But they are so good that it doesn’t really matter that they aren’t lightning fast. For some reason I get an old Benediction feel when I listen to this. There is a touch of old school in the music. I didn’t know a thing about this band beforehand but now I am glad that this came my way. Anders Ekdahl
