Surprise of the month

This is what I call a pleasant surprise.

Between DragonTown (the new Alice Cooper) and this Dragonlord, you should definitely jump on this one. Eric Peterson (Testament) is behind this new band (project ?). This Rapture is a black metal jewel full of 7 songs that will please all black metal fans out there.

Actually, Dragonlord sounds like an angry Dimmu Borgir and I hope this guys will release their next one as fast as possible, because this one is too short ... really too short when you consider there is only 35 minutes music and that first track is an instrumental one. Some of you will tell me quality is better than quantity !!! But in this case, I think the album is really too short because it is a fu**ing good one that ends too quickly.

The synthesizers doesn't out-point more than all the other instruments, the vocals also reminds you very much Dimmu Borgir and the song writing is very similar to The Haunted, which is inspired by Testament. No direct relationship with Eric Peterson, but it is funny to see how music has progressed from Testament to Dragonlord.

You cannot miss this one if you are fan of black metal. Testament's fans should give a try ... as long as they have nothing against black metal of course.

Killing Songs :
The whole "small record" is a killer.
