At the Dawn of Sadistic Infernal Holocaust

Rated 3.4/5 (68%) (5 Votes)

This album is definitely a lesson in not judging a book by its cover. Despite having a dubious cover, as well as a band name, album title AND track names that are chock full of just about every Black Metal cliché ever, Detonator 666 are a killer Black Metal band, filling your senses with an icy apocalyptic dread every time you stick the album into your player.

Featuring members of the infamous Maniac Butcher, Agmen and Dark Storm, Detonator 666 blast out fantastic early Darkthrone-esque riffs wrapped in a trebly production. Guitars blast like an ice-storm, pelting you with freezing shards of grimness as the drums clatter relentlessly, simultaneously pounding bones into dust and minds into mush. All in all, this is a highly worthy release, even though it's not exactly original (they've got the classicized Darkthrone sound down more than Darkthrone actually do nowadays), these guys certainly rank up there with the very best of the Darkclones.

"At the Dawn of Sadistic Infernal Holocaust" is a churning, unrelenting and thoroughly dismal album, brimming with gleeful nihilistic enjoyment for the grim elite.
