𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Thick and meaty (heavy-distorted/buzzsaw) twisted fast repetitive riffs, with ravaging pickings of the bass

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Hoarse - a kind of screaming

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Incessant sonic-crushing drum patterns and beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Zebadiah Crowe is a black metal act that doesn't sound like other black metal


When first pressing the button, I was not expecting the sound, that came out of my speakers with this release, this is more than black metal, is more of an extreme noise – duo act, that crawled out the pit of madness and chaos.


Host Rider is Zebadiah Crowe third full-length release, my word what a beast of a record, the deliverance that as come from just two members, I find this a kind of black metal, you sit down and enjoy or walk away. If you one of these that loved fast-raw and undercooked black metal, this is for you, I found myself, as writing this and enjoying the sheer noise coming from my headphones, is the mixture of this dense, distorted/noise & pure stomach-churning soundscape' that is well balanced out and don't overpower each other


I find the vocals is the talking point as well, the vocalist as a hoarse/screaming technic, they don't dominate the soundscape, drums or the guitars, but adds another level of sonic violence to this dense, dark, twisted bone-crushing music, while the guitar riffing are dark and twisted, yet unmelodic & crushing, while the rest of the release added more layers to the soundscape of -Esque electro/other unusual-sound-fx & lyrical themes on H.P. Lovecraft, Clive Barker, Edgar Allan Poe



*full of energy* *bone-crushing entertaining*

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: Very unusually for a black metal art cover, but it's cool looking, has the Clave Barker / Lovecraftian (sinner/psychedelic) look

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: For me, as to be the whole album and artwork

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none.
