Infernal Majesty – Unholier Than Thou (1998)
Canadian thrash is a wonderful thing and Infernal Majesty are a wonderful band. Here was how to deliver a top-class thrash album in the late 90’s, with supreme conviction and
11 long years after None Shall Defy shook up the underground, Infernal Majesty returned majestically, armed to the teeth with a set of blasphemous thrashers that shook the fillings from your teeth.
Adapting well to the need for more complex and adventurous arrangements, Infernal Majesty’s technicality also came to the fore – particularly on “Gone The Way Of All Flesh” – as they procured inspiration from progressive thrash and death metal to create a release that still sounds devastating today.
In ’98, there was only one mantra a thrash fan (and thrash band) could live by…..and that was to fight for your thrash lives! Fight to the death!
