Chicago sludge-thrashers LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR are hardly shy. If you’ve ever seen their gonzo “War Master” video, you know just about anything goes with these guys, so long as one, it’s brutally heavy and two, it’s contained within the realm of pulp fantasy. Gore, T&A, sword-cleaving mayhem in “War Master”, all set to the tune of thundering metallic chaos. You get the idea. Hardly content to settle for playing a blitzed-out, chum-filled style of grit metal, these guys even issued their own hops, Evil Power Imperial Pilsner, to herald the release of their previous full-length, “Evil Power”.

In 2010, founding member Steven Rathbone started his own label along with band mate Chris Wozniak, The Grind-House Records, an affiliate of the band’s longtime recording host, Southern Lord. After a small break, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR gets back on their bloody warpath with a new two track EP, “Godslayer”.

If you’ve been reading Jason Aaron‘s terrific and often risqué “Thor: God of Thunder” series over at Marvel comics, you’ll no doubt draw an immediate correlation between LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR and Aaron‘s hefty God Butcher epic. A lot of metalheads appear to be hooked on this series if you scan over “God of Thunder”‘s mail section. Thus the “Godslayer” EP delivers a chewy fit to the proposal of a solitary wraith hell-bent on ridding the cosmos of every known deity in the universe.

The title track gallops on the crests of punched-up rhythms from Chris Wozniak and inflictive bass rumbles from Nate Olp, who keeps double time with black-thrashers DEMIRICOUS. Steven Rathbone chugs through a succession of nasty, swampy riffs and hideous roars on the mike. Heaped together, “Godslayer” grinds and thrashes in trafficked sequences that summon gales of blood-flung carnage. The wicked fast and drop-tuned second track “The Black Heart of the Stygian Drakonas” is enough to leave any jaded headbanger satiated, particularly when the chaos slows to a tone-drenched doom crawl. Capped by a creepy synthesizer straight out of the leagues of “Phantasm”, “The Black Heart of the Stygian Drakonas” is both exhausting and exhilarating.

Two songs clocking within nine minute total running time, yet LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR dishes a bounty of crusty speed and chomping chord structures with the same reliability that’s been their m.o. They’ve always been one of the coolest of their ilk, but “Godslayer” seems to hint at something even more fantastic to come. Hammers and maces are prerequisite.

Nile

Nile: Cairo practice

South Carolina metal behemoths, Nile, wound their way to our shores for the first time in over two and half years to lay customary waste to the UK’s metal hordes.

Daniel Cairns was on sentry duty in Highbury, London, and not only sent back this report, but spoke to lead general Karl Sanders about the perilous effects of modern technology on the ancient arts of death metal demon-summoning. Check out the video and live review below!

NILE

EX DEO/SVART CROWN

THE GARAGE, LONDON

SVART CROWN [8] are yet another example of just how far ahead of the pack the French are when it comes to extreme metal. They’re clearly indebted to the discordant likes of Deathspell Omega and Celeste, but they’re also adept at throwing in some beastly Gojira-style grooves too, for when you feel like a bit of a dance. There’s a good turnout for them, and their momentum will only increase. It’s a smashing set, and the bass is absolutely devastating, every thump of the instrument, eliciting a rattle in the chest. EX DEO [8] are a more simplistic and much sillier affair, but by god, they’re fun. It’s genuinely difficult to dislike any band when they come out dressed as Roman Legionnaires and sing songs about fighting and battles. It’s like a heavy metal musical version of Spartacus, without the gore and gratuitous nudity obviously, but still. There’s some excellently heavy metal posing by frontman Maurizio Iacono, as he wails stuff like ‘Hold the line’ and ‘You killed my father’. There’s a fantastic response from the Garage crowd, fists bumping in unison.

NILE [9] come out to an intro track that isn’t a million miles away from the theme of ex-WWE wrestler Goldberg, before going on the warpath. Basically, they sound absolutely devastating tonight. Messrs Sanders and Toller Wade know it too, as a giant, shit-eating grin spreads across Karl’s face constantly. They’re excellent on record obviously, but seeing them live is a different matter altogether. Their mummified, balls to the wall, death metal attack is jaw-dropping in its sheer smothering brutality, even invoking a completely un-ironic throwing up of the metal horns. Highlights include a churning, vicious sounding Sarcophagus and Ithyphalic, featuring the unlikely singalong, ‘Anoint my phallus with the blood of the fallen’. Lovely stuff.
