Lair of the Minotaur
Carnage (Southern Lord)

By: Mike SOS

Raise your horned hands, metal brethren! A new group is in our midst, unleashing the most nefarious concoction of Slayer, Celtic Frost, Sabbath, and Venom yet. The name of these evildoers? Lair of the Minotaur. Not only does this trio's heavy metal joyride keep it real, they keep it amazingly heavy, dynamic, sludgy, and...conceptual? Yup. Each song off of Carnage's eight tracks recounts a tale from Greek mythology as they pound you into the ground with sick riffs and terse rhythms. They even throw in some keyboards for that black metal touch on the diabolic "Demon Serpent". LOTM project a stunning display of metal awareness, as Carnage is fully blessed by the gods of metal as worthy.
