Mammon’s Throne – Forward Unto Flame

Mammon’s Throne – Forward Unto Flame
Black Farm Records – 2020
Rock, Metal, Doom, Black, Sludge
Rated: ****

The French label Black Farm Records has been releasing quality doom vinyl ever since they started around 2016. Limited in numbers it excels in quality. New on the bill is Forward Unto Flame by Melbourne quartet Mammon’s Throne. It is a highly venomous take on the doom metal we all love; blackened, grimy and sludgy. The first two tracks slowly immerse you into the Mammon take on doom and then comes the middle track The Spectre That Lies Within; a hunt for a legendary ghost begins. And only a small glimmer of hope is all that stood between them and death. Holy hell, how it captures your imagination and how it warps you into this drooling idiot, lusting after more of the Throne. After which it only becomes darker and bleaker and gloomier. Wither will bring you very well to the end of you tether and it is only because of closing and title track Forward Unto Flame that you actually survive. A cathedral of doom if every there was one! Crushing your soul and incinerating your spirit! What a ride!
