Kerasphorus - Cloven Hooves At The Holocaust Dawn (2010)

Country: United States
Genre: Black/Death Metal
Label: Nuclear War Now! Productions

A collaboration between two of blackened death metal's most famous and talented performers Pete Helmkamp and James Read, Kerasphorus was only around long enough to give the world two EPs, but fuck were they amazing. Cloven Hooves At The Holocaust Dawn is the first of these and my personal favorite; like a reincarnated Angelcorpse, the band was totally obsessed with going FUCKING FAST utilizing some awesome downtuned tremolo picked riffage and James Read's blitzkrieg like drum assault to reach some dangerous speeds. Like all good black/death metal they would at times slow it down for some awesome and crushing grooves and of course thanks to both members prior experience,  this endeavor as a whole is a complete and utter success.
