Lair of the Minotaur – Evil Power
Genre: Heavy Metal
Label: The Grind-House Records
Looking at the cover of the album, one thinks something like 3 Inches of Blood crossed with some touches of black metal or something. Maybe some death metal.
But then, after listening to this monster of a band, it seems they are just that and more. Definitely reminding me of Advance and Vanquish 3IoB, but without the high pitched vocals, there seems to be some other influences, each obviously an Evil Power (pun intended) controlling what these Chicago natives write.
Catchier riffs, catchier choruses, catchier verses, catchier everything, I’m a fan of Lair of the Minotaur now, officially.
Favorite tracks are “We Are Hades”, “Let’s Kill These Motherfuckers”, and the title track.
A bonus for you Scott Hull fans/stalkers – this album was mastered by him.
8 out of 10.
