Gorgoroth continue to release top quality black metal albums and this is no exception. This album creates such a beautifully cold atmosphere. Gaahl's vocals are scary but not that brutal that you cant understand a word. The production is great and the musicianship is second to none. There are a lot of bands in the black metal scene that sound the same and work to the same formula but Gorgoroth are just that bit better then everyone else. So buy this album if you want brutal but beautifully melodic black metal and you wont be disapointed .
Gorgoroth are not just one of the best Black Metal bands in the world, they are one of the best METAL bands in the world. There are a number of bands that stand out from the others in the tree of Metal. Slipknot in Nu Metal; In Flames in Melodic Death Metal; Suicide Silence in Deathcore; Abominable Putridity in Slamming Brital Death Metal.........the list is endless. And (in my opinion) Gorgoroth are the stand-out band in Black Metal. Their beliefs. Their music. Their live shows complete with Sheep's heads and Corpse Paint......all proof that Gorgoroth continue to conform to the rules of Black Metal and the fact they aren't afraid to show their...um...satanic side proves that these guys are the real deal. Twilight Of The Idols is Gorgoroth's 6th studio release and the brutality and demonic, atmospheric sound is still present. Gaahl's vocals are, as ever, perfect and the guitar work from Infernus and King offer the listener a good dose of Black Metal guitar perfection. The songs are well written, produced and performend and, along with the track listing on Destroyer and Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam, make up Gorgoroth's top 3 albums. This is true, pure Black Metal. And any fan of metal would be stupid not to buy this work of art!
