place of skulls - The Black Is Never Far
In love with the kind of Ye Olde doom metal that tends to come with a free sacrificial virgin (gratis!), 'The Black Is Never Far' marks Place of Skulls' third dalliance in the art of full-length LP's - carving a sound from the depths which is far less oppressive than you might imagine. Sounding surprisingly like vintage Metallica (i.e. before they became the type of band who hold a weekly juice-market...), Place Of Skulls have some real heritage under the bonnet, counting both Victor Griffin (Ex-Pentagram, Ex-Death Row, Ex-Cathedral) and Dennis Cornelius (Revelation and OverSoul) amongst their ranks. Starting out as they very much mean to go on, 'Prisoner's Creed' stacks the riffs high and proud; leaving just enough room for the James Hetfield vocals and climactic drum solos. I can smell the hair from here! Elsewhere, 'Masters Of Jest' extends beyond an in-joke for metal heads to fashion a stomping rock behemoth, 'Relentless' is like Slash on Ketamine, whilst title track 'The Black Is Never Far' explores the softer-side of Place Of Skulls - a territory that demands slow-motion hair-blowing in the desert. Rock and Roll!
