BLACK LUNG - Light Of Lucifer Review (by D)
Black Lung offers something that most black metal /satan influenced bands have not offered before, and thats a blend of punk and hardcore to the freaking bone. Chilling with the bros, and causing havoc in the pit with a big chip on your shoulder. This band kills, and its Julian Vomits business to kill each and every one in the audience in the right way. I got that quote from Phil Anselmo haha but other then that the music flows well, very well paced, pulverizing, and never exhaustive, just a all balls out blood metal album filled with gore and guts enough to make GWAR piss in their pants.
I think each song is relentless, and brings out one determined message, and that is never back down, and stay true to the hardcore roots, but at the same time mix it up with a new flavor very well know by black metallers of yesterday. This combination is rather strange and odd to most listeners but the reception I read so far is the UK fanbase of Black Lung is ever growing, and this band is from Denver Colorado! They must be doing something right.
Julian Vomit is the mad man behind this madness, and kicks the band at such a high rate I wouldnt be surprised if he brought some people to their shows and they pass out from heat exhaustion, I been to quite a few punk/hardcore shows and deff know how intense the mother fucker can get, so watch the fuck out! If your a wuss, step back, this aint gunna be pretty.
The songs have simple names, short but lively tracks, they talk about death, punk, blood, misanthropy, and good old fashioned hails to satan. This band is also know really well in other side projects, and has become a unstoppable force in the underground today. Their album is featured on Satanica Productions, and I doubt you will see this band quitting any time either. Julian wouldnt know the word quit if it were the last thing he had to do. Keeping it sick, twisted, grotesque, but all at the same time, heavy as fuck. Keep a close eye on these guys, they will keep bringing it, and keep knocking you guys dead while standing on your own two feet. Hailz Satan!!!! lml -Danny
