Vinyl LP £16.49 RISELP153
LP on Rise Above.
I’ve been well out of the UK underground metal scene for quite a few years now so this is a real blast from the past for me, Age Of Taurus have been gigging the underground scene since 2009 when vocalist/guitarist Toby Wright formed the band over a love of classic doom metal bands like Candlemass and Trouble, ‘Desperate Souls Of Tortured Times’ their debut for Rise Above Records is the sound of exactly that, heavier than hell itself with riffs to die for.
While most exponents of the extreme metal genre tend to choose the more harsh caveman vocal style, Age Of Taurus have opted for the melodic singing style of Black Sabbath or Saint Vitus and a slower doom laden throb from the rhythm section. This album is chock full of crunchy riffs and some ace lead guitar solos that aren’t too over the top or widdly,with super heavy drums and the sort of witches and goblins style storytelling to the songs. This would sit nicely next to any metal fan's collection of Cathedral albums and patch covered denim jackets.
