Lair Of The Minotaur – Godslayer | Review

It's about bloody time! It's only been three years since Chicago’s Lair of the Minotaur released their fourth album "Evil Power", but for fans like myself that seems like forever.
Unfortunately, “Godslayer” is just an EP featuring two songs, specially conceived for Record Store Day set to happen on April 20th, but damn, this still is another hammer to the face, delivered with even more venom and malice than the last time. Just over eight minutes of raw, ugly and brutal metal that rages with the ferocity of a ravenous beast, “Godslayer” finds Lair of the Minotaur at their rampaging best. The title track sees them going straight for the jugular with a mix of “Reign In Blood” imperious riffing and the straightforward, powerful drive of Motörhead. The crushing chainsaw riffs of Steven Rathbone slay absolutely everything in their path, while drummer Chris Wozniak beats the crap out of his drum kit like an out-of-control lunatic. The other track, "The Black Heart of the Stygian Drakonas", charges out of the gate in Motörhead-style with heavy, powerful riffs that are rawer than the flesh ripped from a still warm carcass by a vulture.
Now Mr. Rathbone, stop fooling around with these small teasers and put your hands to work on a new full-length effort, which is essentially what all your fans are eagerly waiting for.
