Bible of the Devil: The Diabolic Procession

Fans of the weird and interesting retro-NWOBHM outfit Lord Weird Slough Feg will be very happy with the latest release (the fourth album) from Chicago-area four-piece, Bible of the Devil. There's more than a hint of the Thin Lizzy twin-guitar attack in "Sepulchre", accompanied wih a Motorhead grind. "Millenialism" features some fine instrumental sections on top of the Cirith Ungol-styled vocals, and a Maidenish solo straight out of 1980/1981. "Legions of the Oriflamme" is a relentless speedball, and doesn't let up for its five-minute duration. "The Elusive Miracle" starts out acoustically enough and goes through several tempo changes, building up to a majestic solo section and a harmonized chorus. Easily the best track of the album, spotlighting the band's strengths. Heaviness abounds in "Heinous Corpus" with more harmonized chorus and 100 R.P.M. drumming. "Judas Ships" is yet another Cirith Ungol / Thin Lizzy hybrid, with a great twin-guitar section parked towards the end, and the seven-minute "Slaves" (much like "Orphans of Doom" before it) is a slice of Cirith/Sabbath. There's much to recommend in this piece, especially if this is your kinda headspace.
