THE 1996 DEBUT OF CULT CLASSIC MEDIEVAL BLACK METAL MASTERY FROM

MONACO'S GODKILLER

 

Formed in 1993 & hailing from Monaco, Godkiller was the vision of multi-instrumentalist & sole founding member, Duke Satanaël, who between 1996 & 2000 released an EP & two studio albums under the Godkiller name, commencing with the black metal cult classic debut 'The Rebirth of the Middle Ages'.

 

Though initially more a death metal inspired act in the formative years, Godkiller quickly evolved into a project fully engulfed in the spirit of 1990’s black metal, recalling acts like Emperor & Satyricon for the implementation of such strong atmospherics, though on later releases Godkiller incorporated more industrial & electronic elements into the compositions as part of its creative evolution.

 

'The Rebirth of the Middle Ages' was originally released in 1996, & is a prime example of finely crafted, grandiose yet raw black metal of the times, following on from the strong groundwork of 1995's demo, 'The Warlord', & even incorporating music from that release, with anti-Christian themes prevalent throughout & an overall concept of the battle between good & evil.

 

With a cold, stripped down production, plus triumphantly dark yet epic riffs mixed with tortured vocals & highly effective synthesizer melodies, the EP evokes a strong Medieval atmosphere throughout, showing why 'The Rebirth of the Middle Ages' is still highly regarded as a glorious touch of darkness from the past.

 

The edition of 'The Rebirth of the Middle Ages' is presented on the CD format with its original artwork, plus lyrics, with the tracks remastered by Duke himself.
