Editorial Reviews

A epic and undeniable monolith hath been unleashed upon thee earth... Behold! The second album from Chicago's Warlords Lair of the Minotaur!! The Ultimate Destroyer bulldozes down the same path as their critically acclaimed and now classic debut: Carnage. Blistering riffs and skullcrushing rhythms played with an apocalyptic aesthetic and complimented perfectly with horrific lyrical vengeance. Southern Lord. 2006.

Oh Yeah!!!This is what happens when you play too much Dungeons and Dragons and mom buys you a guitar to encourage you to "make some new friends". This is what happens when Mastodon meets Slayer and gets regurgitated on a harcover copy of Finch's Mythology. This is what happens when an amp is pushed so far that the knobs melt into smoking blobs of stinking black tar, and it's oscillating waves of distortion create a huge shockwave blowing down houses in a 1/2-mile radius, bursting the eardrums and liquefying the internal organs of all hapless onlookers. The heaviest, most abrasive, and most FUN metal album I've heard in years. + 4 flaming broadsword not included.....

It doesn't take the listener long when listening to Lair Of The Minotaur's second full-length album to realize that this is another installment in the post-High On Fire sludge/doom metal wave that has become quite the craze in the twenty-first century. But the one difference that distinguishes LOTM from the hoard of imitators is the fact that they are much heavier than, say, High On Fire and/or The Sword, and boast much bigger and more dominating guitar chops. In fact, these three Chicago, Illinois naties are more-or-less an amalgam of all things extreme and brutal. Thus, 2006'S aptly-entitled "The Ultimate Destroyer" is first and foremost a sludge/doom metal record, but it fuses in strong thrash and speed metal influences, as well as death and black metal. Furthermore, you will also hear traces of melodeath, groove metal, hardcore, and even grindcore.

As hinted at above, it is, without question, the guitars that dominate the maelstrom, here. But the other instruments are nothing to sneeze at, either. The bass forms a wall of gluey, dissonant sludge behind the guitars and visceral vocals; and the drums may stay at a largely mid-tempo pace (steadily beating the listener) over the course of this release, but the occasional blast beat can be heard in the mix every now and then. On the whole, "The Ultimate Destroyer" falls at some point between the aforementioned High On Fire (and, subsequently, Black Sabbath and Motohead), Slayer, Sepultura, At The Gates, Celtic Frost, Kreator, Venom, Gojira/Mastodon, and Morbid Angel.

"Juggernaut Of Metal" is a slow-burning brooder highlighted by a great crescendo. It builds gradually and steadily until it not-so-suddenly climaxes with a fiery chug and churn riff.
