"Conqueror is an epic album, alternating between brutal and brooding, between the muscular heft of early NWOBHM and the slow pummeling of classic doom. Nowhere is this ethos more apparent than in “The Dark Valley Suite,” the four part tribute to Conan author Robert E. Howard that closes the album. There The Gates of Slumber trudges through blood soaked doom to somber neo-classical passages (which show how far Simon has improved as a vocalist, as well as highlighting the bass playing of McCash) and builds up to a pounding metal frenzy. There's something savagely noble about the album."

"I can hear Mercyful Fate, Black Sabbath, Cirith Ungol, Iron Maiden, Celtic Frost, The Obsessed and Saint Vitus often mixed into one song and it works really well. Singing is a lot like a heavy metal WINO. To me this is better then both Electric Wizard's Witchcult Today and Reverend Bizarre's So Long Suckers (and I love both of those). But I have a bias towards heavy metal riffs in my doom. I am now officially a big fan of this band. Going back to Suffer No Guilt I get more out of that album then I did before."

"It has a very 80s metal vibe but without being cheesy or ironic; like a mix of Sabbath with Dio, Manowar and The Obsessed...some of it almost reminds me of Kryst the Conqueror, and the chorus to "Children of Satan" sounds like a Bad Religion song! This is hands down one of the better albums I've heard this year."

Hymns of Blood and Thunder (CD)

Label: Metal Blade   Origin: USA
It's these sort of creative flourishes, along with some seriously top notch songwriting, that elevates Hymns of Blood and Thunder to greatness. Whether it's the subtle layering of guitars, the guest female vocals on “The Mist in the Mourning”, or the way the band so effortlessly mixes might with majesty, The Gates of Slumber have truly arrived into their own with Hymns of Blood and Thunder. If they're to be judged by one album, let this one be it.
