A Wolf In The Kingdom Of Heaven
May 2008
Released: 2008, Independent
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: Simon Lukic

Aghast hail from the United Kingdom and A WOLF IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is their first release. For a young band they have a good handle of things as the EP has a Morbid Angel like vibe circa DOMINATION mixed with some modern Black Metal influences. That’s a pretty good start if I do say so myself.

The opening song “Forced To Kneel” is a solid cut and it’s here that you can notice the potential in the band. The tune rocks and has a feel that is distinctive and ugly, but in a good way. “Chum” moves along nicely with a solid groove and the band create a sinister atmosphere on “Assume The Position”. The final cut ‘Mind Atrophy” brings the EP is a strong conclusion and even adds some haunting clean vocals to heighten the tension.

All in all, A WOLF IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN is an entertaining listen that should find favour with many extreme metal fans. Further time spent honing their ideas will only lead to stronger material but for a first effort it’s pretty cool. I’m looking forward to hearing more from Aghast in the future.
