From the darkness of the dungeons in which you dwell explodes forth BATTLEMASTER, seers of absolute fantastickal sordid black thrashery. Expecting nothing but total triumphant victory of dark forces over peace-lovers and good-doers alike, BATTLEMASTER has advanced overtop the weakness of the battalions of rank-and-file black metal, death metal and thrash aggressors to deliver commanding and unique death knells to all who dare to listen. Their ornately armored sound offers complete sycophantic scathe and nothing but a grotesquely fed upon carrion-funeral amidst the battlefield. GHASTLY, GRAVEN & GRIMOIRELESS spells out their latest testament to the pitiless archvillian that supreme mastery of evil magic bestows. Calculate your own self-meaning, purpose and value- then wager it foolishly against the horrid onslaught BATTLEMASTER threatens.

Even if I were deaf, the track titles alone would warrant me owning this album- providing in a way, a literary nod to The Phantom Lodge ala Mazes and Monsters.
As for musicality, these boys sure rolled a nat 20 for this subterranean high speed attack, delivering a distinctly critical hit for the archives. satangutsandchristcorpsepaint
