I should know better. But, I admit I was intrigued: a mix of old school thrash and black metal with a female lead. After the briefest of listen to Korgull The Exterminator and their debut 'Dogs Of War,' I knew I had made a mistake and the joke was on me. Korgull has to be the worst metal band I have heard in a long time. This band is so terrible, so devestatingly horrifying, that I should make a new award (and category) just for them: dumbass metal band of the week. Within the first song, I thought I'd laugh my ass off. This band sucks.
I'll give them credit by way of description, they do play a mix of classic early 80's thrash and black metal. However, it's all downhill from here. Their black/thrash metal is so horrid that 'Dogs Of War' makes Venom's debut sound like a Beethoven symphony. Seriously, the band's musicians Mark Wild, Steel Maniac, and Joe Bastard can barely play their instruments. They sound rigid, flat and totally contrived and uninspired. Moreover, I thought it was impossible for a death metal singer(?) to ever sound bad, but Lilith Necrobitch is truly misereable; her own appellation of delivery is perfect: 'screams of agony.' Unfortunately, we listeners are the ones enduring the pain of her vocal torture: screams, grunts, and groans of incoherent and unsufferably inane lyrics about battle, blood and death. Well, that is certainly original and clever! Bottom line: Korgull should be scheduled for extermination.
Korgull The Exterminator is a hideous heavy metal band and a perfect embarassment to true metal bands everywhere. Highly avoidable!

Somebody's been picking through their daddy's record collection, probably stealing it too. Germany's Snakebite has no pretensions. They rock like it's 1987. Call them a "throwback" band if you will, but these youngsters sound like they just played the stage at The Whiskey on the ... [ Read More ]
