Review: Emperor Guillotine - Emperor Guillotine

"Emperor Guillotine" is a debut album by Emperor Guillotine, a project fully managed by Dallas, Texas native Ben Randolph. The self-titled debut is a glorious homage to the heavy metal crunch, all the way keeping the prog sensibilities in mind. "Emperor Guillotine" is an instrumental album heavily inspired by Black Sabbath - Tony Iommi in particular. The synths can be heard throughout the record, but they are subdued in exchange for a rekindled devotion the almighty riff.

"Sea of Dust," "Witch  Mountain" and "The Bastille" are all powerful, rock- oriented songs driven by thick riff mastery. "The Unearthly" is a step above in terms of its sophistication, fitting in crunchy guitars with quite a few unsettling spots. 

"Emperor Guillotine" is a record worth giving a try for everyone who enjoys organic heavy metal / hard rock sound, and I am sure that there are people who still appreciate this over hyper-tight computerised albums.
