Apocalypse (Season of Mist)

By: Mike SOS

Season of Mist unfurls its roster of meaty metal on this 17-track compilation CD, leaving no stone unturned. Spanning the metal genre from the malevolent to the elegant, established metal entities such as Mayhem and Carpathian Forest make auspicious returns, while groups like the female-led Gothic romp of Penumbra and the chaotic Blood Duster flaunt its metal wares. The most interesting of the tracks, however, comes from a band that calls themselves Macabre Minstrels, whose dead-on interpretation of the folk classic "Tom Dooley" doesn't really belong on a metal collection, but whose subject matter of murder, retribution, and hanging, fits right along side songs like "Sluts of Hell" and "You're Dying to Be With Me".
