The Second Coming
September 2001
Released: 2001, Sinternational
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: El Cid

Hailing from Virginia Ordained is a band that doesn’t really fit in any pre-established sub-genre of metal. This CD is excellent, just excellent. I picked it up yesterday from my local Metal Store and the Rick, the usual clerk there, told me that I should listen to this one instead of taking home some Running Wild CD I was going to buy. At first I thought “no way this can top Running Wild…” but then I listened to the first 2 tracks (“The Ordained” and “Caught in a trap”) and I was very intrigued as to what the rest of the album would sound like so I ended up taking The Second Coming home instead of Port Royal.

I don’t know how to describe this best but I’ll try anyways, picture for a moment that you take Motorhead, Testament and Overkill, shove them in a blender and hit FrapĂ©. Out comes Ordained with bass passages that will make you sit back and listen quietly in awe, some very consistent drumming and an excellent guitar work.

At the end of the CD I was pretty impressed and I’ll recommend this to any fans of Overkill, Motorhead or Testament.
