”Evil Rising”

Battle Helm Rating

There are tons of records that I haven’t heard for various reasons. So it comes as no surprise that I am not at all familiar with THE HERETIC ORDER and their previous album from 2015. This is not what I expected it to be. I imagined this to be some sort of black metal but it is so much heavy metal that it is hard to think otherwise. My first reaction was that this sounded like a Ghost gone heavy metal and to some extent I still maintain that point of view. But this is also so much more than that. This is in extension a really cool heavy metal album. Not knowing anything about the band makes me wonder who the people behind it are. Because this has that all-star kinda feel to it. But no matter who it is that is behind this, this is one hell of an album. Anders Ekdahl
