Horrified – Allure of the Fallen Review

Horrified is in a bit of an odd place. Parallels to Philadelphia death outfit Horrendous are apt, with Horrified‘s first two albums delivering exactly the slabs of modernized Swedeath you might expect.

Big album.

In Human Form – Opening of the Eye by the Death of the I Review

In Human Form has me trapped in a corner. In addition to being a mouthful, Opening of the Eye by the Death of the I has seen my prosaic muse torn to pieces.

An undertaking this ambitious and idiosyncratic surely has a story to tell, but my thoughts are born dead, the empty words of an overactive imagination.” Open the mind or die.
