“Plague Bearer” by Unholy Rat King

a4012080230_10After the success of their debut album, “Wine Into Blood,” Unholy Rat King evidently went to hell and stole Satan’s Game Boy in order to help themselves conduct quite the sinful symphony on their follow-up, “Plague Bearer.”

To paraphrase Conan the Barbarian, Unholy Rat King knows what’s best in life; “bit crush your enemies, see their ears bleed before you, and hear the lamentation of their headphones.” Yet, despite the harshness, there’s still a royal elegance to be admired and enjoyed from both the sounds of the album itself and to the eldritch sights displayed on its cover which was drawn so beautifully by Android Priest.
