Review

Little did I know that all 3 members of Mpire of Evil had been in Venom in different line up´s, I was only acquianted with guitarist Mantas but their drummer Antton is the brother of Cronos and he has also been in a more recent line up of Venom as well as bassplayer/singer Tony Dolan. They released a covers EP in 2011 called "Creatures of the black" that only included 2 original tracks but they sounded promising and I am pretty certain all fans of Venom will be pleased with the full length album "Hell to the holy" that comes out in March. This is a well performed album that goes more in the vein of classic metal rather than black metal, this is a powerful metal album and even if I´m not such a fan of their lyrics,I do enjoy the thundering riffs and Dolan´s vocals. "The 8th gate" is just as heavy as any Black Sabbath tune from their early era and "Shockwave" bring thoughts to Accept´s "Restless and wild" album, very cool.

2. Metal Messiah
3. Waking Up Dead
4. Hell to the Holy

6. All Hail
