Review: Erimha – Reign Through Immortality

Rated:

3/5

Their name is the ancient Sumerian word for “Army,” and this Québecois black-metal quintet sure sound like a conquering horde. Given the generally guttural nature of the vocals, it’s hard to say whether the lyrics are all bloody sword and ravaged lands stuff (hell, it’s not even clear what language the lyrics are in), but the music gets the point across. The core of the band throbs with intensity, layering maniacally intense riffage over relentlessly grinding kick drum, while the keyboard overlays fatten it all with orchestral flourishes worthy of a gladiator epic. Your speakers will drip gore. J.D. CONSIDINE
