"Formed in 2004 in Spain, this trio started life by the simple name of Rhino and released two albums before having to change their name due to legal reasons to Horn of the Rhino. Their first album under this new moniker was 2010s superb “Weight of Coronation” and now 2 years on, the trio is ready with the follow up, “Grengus”. What Horn of the Rhino used to do was a sludgy brand of doom metal that would take its influences from doom, grunge, sludge and death metal and somehow fuse it into one coherent and crushing whole. This is a bit of a new chapter for the band. Instead of trying to top the previous albums’ massive doom metal epics, the band has sped up and made things even heavier. Imagine High on Fire’s “Surrounded by Thieves” but more death metal oriented and you’ll get a vague idea of where the band is coming from."
"Ranging from full-on, raw throated attacks, as bloody as a bar fight and twice as vicious, to slower, thick-as-molasses sludge runs, there is variety and dynamic in spades making this one of the most potent albums you are liable to hear."
