Messiah - Choir Of Horrors

Messiah - Choir Of Horrors

\r\nThe Swiss, legendary Messiah unfortunately never managed to gain the popularity they deserved, Personally I consider them as one of the important and underrated bands of the genre. Their first release was the LP   “Hymn to Abramelin” back in 1986 and it was a groundbreaking thrash metal debut, the second LP “Extreme Cold Weather” follows next year and although the production is weird, can be considered as one of the thrash metal monuments. Through the 90’s Messiah released three monumental technical death metal releases,   “Psychomorphia E.P.” – 1990, “Choir Of Horrors” LP – 1991 and “Rotten Perish LP – 1992” (The “Underground” album of 1994 I really want to forget it).\r\n

\r\nSo in this review we will refer to their probably best effort, the “Choir Of Horrors” LP that have been release through Noise Records of Germany, and it is one of the best technical death metal albums of the 90’s and in general.
\r\n“Choir Of Horrors” consists of eight little diamonds, with the unique sound that only Messiah owns, and this is their strongest point, with the great, nearly out of the grave vocals by Andy Kaina that seems to spit the great lyrics of Messiah while the guitars of Brögi teaches the death metal sound and riffs of the 90’s. Undoubted this is the decade with the best death metal albums.
\r\nIn General words are never enough for this band, all of you that you have listened to Messiah ‘s album especially the “Choir Of Horrors” and “Rotten Perish” you known that, as for the others, I recommend to check Messiah’s works, Just for the record, the vocals on the “Underground “ album made by Christopher Johnsson  (Therion) but it will be better if we don’t consider this album as Messiah’s one
