Hell-Born – Cursed Infernal Steel

hellborn_090407_cursedHailing from Hell via Poland and rising from the remnants of the bands Behemoth and Damnation comes Hell-Born with “Cursed Infernal Steel” the much anticipated follow up to the outstanding “Legacy of the Nephilim”. Hell-Born is a band that “gets it” as far as metal is concerned. Every note, every growl and every beat spurts and sprays metalized blood across the divine stage. This feat is natural for them though because that is exactly what they have pumping through their veins and they are unafraid to rip them open in order to create such hellish hymns. Rarely are such memorable sing along type songs constructed this slickly, and this crushingly heavy. It took some time for me to adjust to the number of times the chorus is repeated in each song at first, but at the end of the day the overwhelming strength of the material outweighs this minor flaw and so I was able to move past it. This domestic version has vastly different cover art than the European version as well as what appear to be two CD-ROM bonus tracks, so if you were planning on getting the import you may wish to reconsider. If you are into heavy, classy riffs with pounding drums that perfectly complement those riffs performed in a very memorable way than I strongly urge you to give “Cursed Infernal Steel” a serious spin. – Lance Rogers
