Classic Rock, New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Stoner/Doom Metal, mixed fluidly and competently, fronted by a Woman whose voice is neither trite, nor banal, and packaged by Relapse records. Yes, please! This band sticks out in the crop of excellent revisionist, revivalist, metal acts, that channel a classic rock vibe. These guys summon Iron Maiden at their best and have them split time with Black Sabbath while always remaining heavy enough to satisfy today's metal fan. The lyrics stick with you and the riffs stick even more! and best of all, it gets better and more rewarding every time you listen to it! Combine this with their e.p. Agony and Opium and begin to understand why other bands try to re-capture this kind of glory, but the difference is clear as day. These guys rip through these songs and leave you wanting so much more, it will be an absolute pleasure to see what they have next but for now, I'm going to play my copy of Possesion completely ragged.

This is an incredible album, mixing elements of hard rock and early heavy metal in a unique and mystical way. There is enough variety to keep the listener's attention, switching from nice heavy rhythms to blistering guitar melodies with an intriguing female vocalist. If you like Ghost or follow any of the NWOBHM sound, or just like good heavy metal, you must check this out. After hearing this I am picking up their 'Agony and Opium' album as well, I hope it's as good as this one!

This album is f'n great rock & roll. Well, I guess we could argue about the ever-shifting line dividing rock and metal, which is a fun game of pin-the-tail-on-the-goat for some people. To me the real meat of the question is like this: what is this music good for?

In this case, this band is almost too good for its own good. I've been tuning it in on my difference engine radio a lot at work, which seems like a sacrilegious abuse that would get me tarred and feathered in a more sane world (in my defense, it is Spring, so life is sort of exciting even if I am sitting in an office). Otherwise, this album has been consigned to a particular pile of music that I am frankly not ready for at the moment. Iron Fist by Motorhead is sitting there; I've been trying to work through Joe Strummer's solo albums.

The problem? I need to be blasting down the open road, across the desert and mountains, careening between taut anticipation and reckless abandon, and gone haywire in love in order to feel the full punch of the lightning that is depicted on this record's wrapper.

The artistic experience is a union of subject (you) and object (the art). It's not the art's fault if its subject is found insufficiently-enriched to be ready for it. But as someone who routinely decries the dearth of good rock & roll post-90s, I want to say that Christian Mistress gives me hope. It's not as obscure as the "Cascadian" brand of post-rock/shoegaze black metal beloved by one breed of hipster, nor is it near the irony of Wolfmother or The Sword loved by another.

The band hails from Washington, the land of Alice in Chains and Nirvana, and like those bands (and their spiritual brethren from other locales-- The Pumpkins, Tool, Danzig, Manson, Nails, Tori Amos)-- there is venom in its bite.
