“Death Is King”
(Gates Of Hell Records)

Battle Helm Rating

I don’t know when I heard a speed/thrash metal album the last time. But Sweden’s BLACK CYCLONE make sure that those days aren’t long gone. I sit here and I cannot really decide what I think of this. There is a side of me that wants to spew vile over this but that side is the minority side. The side that I lean more towards is the side that says this is good. I am gonna let that side convince me why I should like this. Musically this is top notch. What I have issues with is the vocals. As often is with this kind of metal you gotta have a really strong vocalist to lift it to uncharted highs. BLACK CYCLONE’s vocalist is no Chuck Billy or Steve “Zetro” Souza. But then few are. My over all impression of this is that I like it. Anders Ekdahl
