Goddess Of Desire - Awaken Pagan Gods

Oh, there are my Dutch friends of decent Hammer Metal that is so true you could scream. Memories of the heroes of the eighties are a must and there are all manners of references to RUNNING WILD, VENOM, CARNIVORE, CELTIC FROST and, of course, MOTÖRHEAD. Unfortunately they don’t quite reach the ingenious “Conqueror’s Divine” from 2002. They’ll probably never top this album again…

 

Mox nix, as the Bavarians say – nevertheless, the album is a decent offering in terms of Heavy Metal for old warriors, drinkers and cowl-wearers – or for all of them. Check out tip “Victory Is Mine”, an anthem with a proll-factor of 10. You don’t even notice the most drunken of all voices here (so confidently bawl along) – that’s how fucked up the guys sound here…Or “Booze” with its blast passages! The Lemmy tribute mustn’t be missing either, and this time it’s called “Nothing’s Free”. Cool shit!

 

The fun factor is immensely high here! Maybe the album is too happy – after all you can’t be drunk all the time…But it also works without alcohol… (Online October 12, 2005)
