Taurus Slain

It has been five goddamn years since the release of the debut Age Of Taurus LP. As the years ticked by, I was starting to become certain that it was going to be the only testament to this killer Doom band out of the UK.

That first Age Of Taurus album was so damn good, and it grew on me like crazy. The only reason that it didn't make my Top 10 for 2013 was because there was so much great Metal being released that it was with high expectations that I jumped in to check out the new song that was released back in April.

I don't know if it was because I was listening to lots of newer Hardcore at the time, but the new Age Of Taurus just didn't really excite me. Still, when Rise Above posted the album for preorder, I went for the most expensive and most limited option. The gamble paid off, because this album has really grown on me with each listen. Definitely one of my favorites of the year thus far.

100 pressed on clear vinyl for the Die Hard edition.

The Die Hard pressing comes with a bonus one sided 7 inch that contains an exclusive song.
