Once more the Hellenic hordes are massing with the intent of bombarding the world in sulphur! Welcome to the Principality of Hell and prepare for some ‘Fire & Brimstone’. In the words of this fiery trio, Principality of Hell are “A band dedicated to the old black / thrash metal spirit of early Vemon, Celtic Frost, Bathory and Sodom and this release doesn’t dissapoint!
With that in mind things rise rapidly from the abyss with the fast paced title track, an ode to Satan, ‘Black Fucking Metal’ and ‘Fire & Brimstone in Your face!’. With a sound just as boisterous as the previous track, ‘Codex Inferno’ praises the beast whilst at times indulging the bands slower, more sinister vibes!
Throughout the album POH play a fast, ravenous style of black / thrash but are forever bleeding a more intensive, thought provoking style into the mix. It truly is just the right dose of extremity versus subtlety, although don’t expect too much of the latter as this is still a balls to the wall blackened thrash fest, violent, dark and gripping.
