Arghoslent - Hornets of the Pogrom

Got racism?

Arghoslent - Hornets of the Pogrom

As mentioned, this is a fairly racist album. The band claims they are not and that their lyrics are merely told from the point of view of colonial perspectives, which is indeed true. These lyrics are clearly sung as if the slave trade is alive and well in colonial times. It is ultimately up to the listener to decide however if these are the true feelings of the band and whether or not the lyrics will impair your enjoyment, but I digress...

What we have here, racist or not, is some of the best melodic death metal out there you will hear. This isn't generic In Flames, or At the Gates worship, rather this is more along the lines of the Intestine Baalism I posted earlier. This is death metal, with melody.
