Minotauri was a Finnish band hell bent on the classic, towering doom of such luminaries as St. Vitus, Pagan Altar, Candlemass, and Pentagram, however Minotauri cut their own path and sounded little like their influences. Unfortunately, the band called it quits in 2007 after releasing their second LP. Here I present their first LP from 2004 simply titled Minotauri. Great riffs, typically gloomy comic-book horror lyrics, and the distinct voice of singer/guitarist Ari Honkonen make Minotauri a stand-out release. If the cover and my description don't have you frothing at the mouth with anticipation, I feel I should add that this was released by the ultra-elite cult label Black Widow, a label that only deals in quality darkness.
