IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present FRONT BEAST's highly anticipated third album, Third Scourge From Darkness. Since the late '90s, this German entity has been lurking in the darkest corners of the black metal underground and accrued a cult status to kill for. Helmed by mainman Avenger - whose resume includes a dozen other bands/projects, including THE FOG, whose Perpetual Blackness IRON BONEHEAD released on vinyl LP last year - FRONT BEAST have stayed committed to a pure 'n' proud vision, honoring the ancient ways with a prolific stream of demos and split releases.
Now, FRONT BEAST are prepared to literally scourge from the darkness with their aptly titled third album, Third Scourge From Darkness. In many ways, this third strike is a perfect summation of the FRONT BEAST aesthetic these past 18 years: damp dungeon atmosphere, crude-yet-commanding execution, thirsty 'n' miserable vocals, an aura of hideousness and unhealth, and an unselfconscious obeisance of time-honored heavy metal values. It is trend-free black metal of an ancient, mystical hue, highlighted by production that finds that elusive balance between rawness and righteousness, clarity and caustic rot. Feel the flames of Hell and face the Third Scourge From Darkness!

This is fully fuckn sicknuts! I've only just finished the first listen. I'm gonna get Irishshitfaced drunk and play this to the neighbours till the cows come home. Good luck neighbours because I own fuck all cows. It's like this light fingered pick pocket motherfucker jacked all the good stuff at the same time and produced the stolen goods for the win to win over the Judge, Jury and Executioner with this severe beautiful brutality of thrashing death!.

I really enjoy the atmospheric down tuned guitars on Severed Monolith. The drummer gets the job done and lays down some very well executed blasting. The ethereal track, “Eternity,” and the last untitled instrumental piano track, are welcome palate cleansers. There is nothing too adventurous but the music is predominantly fun to listen to nonetheless. A solid death metal album, one that I consider relaxing. 7/10. Landon
