Towards the Unknown

Rated 4.2/5 (84%) (5 Votes)

After coming back from a 13-year gap, Battlesword are three albums into a kind of second life, and I love how they are still thugging Death Metal like it was 1995, with no nods to any kind of modern trends except for the heavy, sharp recording job on their material. This is heavy and riffy, not shy about just chugging because it sounds cool, and has more than enough variety in the songwriting to keep you interested. This is just a good band, and they make good shit.
