Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (4 Votes)
The Grave Alchemist is the third full-length from North Carolina's Black/Thrash miscreants All Hell. The music is thrashy with maybe a bit more speed (and some blast-beat drumming) than many of the bands crowding this genre at the moment. The vocals are closer to the second wave of Black Metal with more of a rasp to the growls. Like a lot of albums in the current Black/Thrash wave, The Grave Alchemist goes by in a blur, much of it indistinct but there are a couple of tracks that capture your attention with their atmosphere, namely the title track and the closer "I Am the Mist." The latter has a pounding riff and back beat not unlike Motörhead's "Orgasmatron" and it's used effectively. All Hell isn't breaking the mold or pushing the envelope of Black/Thrash in any way but The Grave Alchemist is more than competent and fans of the genre should get some decent mileage from it.
