Steeped in pure magic and majesty, AxMinister graces our ears yet again with another release titled The Crucible Of Sin. Combining the likes of thrash and traditional heavy metal, AxMinister present five new tracks to bang your head to throughout their new release. From beginning to end, AxMinister entertain, get your fist pumping and your head banging whether you wanted to or not. The Crucible Of Sin is an infectious and incredibly memorable release that will have you singing right along with it for some time to come. Each track is solid, well put together, heavy and entirely indelible.
From the drop of the first note, AxMinister pull their ax from stone, brandishing it mightily and powerfully as they dish out shredding sharpened riff after sharpened riff. Thrown in to the mix are face melting solos as well as ever present charging drumming as well as very solid very infectious vocals. Each of the five tracks present within this release are woven together well to provide you with a cohesive and well rounded sound that you will have a hard time getting out of your head. With The Crucible Of Sin, AxMinister gift you with five highly addictive and highly entertaining tracks that you keep coming back to.
It doesn’t take these warriors too long to jump straight in to the fist pumping action as they jump almost immediately in to their opener Prey, right after the lustful moaning fades in to lustful obscurity. From then on they move swiftly from track to track never letting up on their all out heavy metal assault, getting you to twist your neck and bash your brain against your skull. These melodious offerings will get embedded in your brain for some time as you will catch yourself humming these tunes even after you have long been done listening.
The Crucible Of Sin is an overall very solid effort, one that provides you with non stop entertainment and joy. This is a release that you won’t get tired of as you will choose to keep it on repeat until you wear the disc out.
The Crucible Of Sin will be released May 4, 2018
