Arghoslent of United States of America (Oakton, Virginia) is a Death Metal band formed in the summer of 1990. The band's lyrics have been the source of much controversy for advocating racism, particularly promoting white supremacist views of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade and The Holocaust. Despite being criticized for their racist ideology, Arghoslent has become a popular underground artist (especially after the release of Incorrigible Bigotry), their albums gathering mostly positive reviews.

Arghoslent released their debut full-length studio album "Galloping Through the Battle Ruins" in 1998 but before then the band had recorded 4 demos. Their second full-length studio album "Incorrigible Bigotry" was released in 2002 while it would be 6 years before they released their much praised third full-length studio album "Hornets of the Pogrom" in 2008.

ARGHOSLENT Hornets of the Pogrom

Album · 2008 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
"Hornets of the Pogrom" is the 3rd full-length studio album by US death metal act Arghoslent. The album was released through Drakkar Productions in March 2008. It´s the successor to "Incorrigible Bigotry" from 2002 and features a couple of lineup changes since the predecessor as bassist Kommando has been replaced by Einzelganger and lead vocalist Von Demonicus has been replaced by The Genocider. Arghoslent have not toned down their lyrics dealing with neo-Nazi/white Supremacy topics, endorsement of the transatlantic slave trade, and hateful rants against jews, so consider yourself warned before reading on/listening to the album.

"Incorrigible Bigotry (2002)" was quite a few steps up in quality from "Galloping Through the Battle Ruins (1998)" and "Hornets of the Pogrom" actually accomplishes being an even better quality release. Stylistically this is melodic death metal with a great drive and some convincing aggressive growling vocals. The album is loaded with killer riffs (both fast tremolo riffs and heavy riffs), harmony guitar melodies and leads, and a great raw and brutal energy/power. While this is old school influenced death metal to the bone, there is a strong traditional heavy metal influence in the music too, which is both audible in the way some of the riffs are constructed but also because of the many melodic elements featured on the album.

The musicianship is strong and I especially enjoy how the drums are played, driving the music forward with great aggression and power. The growling vocals are relatively one-dimensional in nature, but they are well sounding, brutal, and fairly intelligible, suiting the instrumental part of the music perfectly. "Hornets of the Pogrom" features a powerful, detailed, and overall very well sounding production, which does exactly what the best productions do...provide the material with a golden platform to shine.

White Supremist lyrics and image aside, "Hornets of the Pogrom" is a high quality death metal album with strong melodic sensibilities. Arghoslent are even relatively unique sounding, although the elements they use to create their sound are hardly original. They manage to combine all elements to a sound of their own though, and the final result is pretty damn brilliant. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

ARGHOSLENT Incorrigible Bigotry

Album · 2002 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
"Incorrigible Bigotry" is the 2nd full-length studio album by US death metal act Arghoslent. The album was released through Drakkar Productions in October 2002. Almost to the day four years after the release of the band´s debut full-length studio album "Galloping Through the Battle Ruins (1998)".

The lyrics and the band´s image are as controversial as ever with neo-Nazi/white Supremacy topics, endorsement of the transatlantic slave trade, and hateful rants against jews. As a reviewer you can take two stances on such topics, which is a purely subjective one, condemning Arghoslent for their hateful output, or the more objective one, and mainly talk about the music, which is the one I´ll take...

...and there are plenty to talk about other than the controversial lyrics, as Arghoslent are a very well playing band, performing their music with great technical skill and a burning passion and conviction. Stylistically the material on "Incorrigible Bigotry" continue the melodic death metal style (not melodeath) of "Galloping Through the Battle Ruins (1998)", but it´s audible that Arghoslent have spent the four years between the two releases honing both their playing and their songwriting skills, because "Incorrigible Bigotry" is not just one step up from its predecessor but rather two or three steps up in quality. The same goes for the sound production, which is professional, raw, and powerful and suits the material perfectly.

The music features tempo changes, heavy riffs, fast galloping riffs and rhythms, blistering leads and harmonies, and some really convincing snarling growling vocals in front. This is high quality death metal and there´s even a touch of originality to the sound which you don´t always hear on death metal releases from artists few people have ever heard about. Usually there is a good reason only a few people have heard about a band and even fewer call themselves fans, but that´s not the case with Arghoslent, who could easily have been more recognised had it not been for their ideological choices.

So upon conclusion "Incorrigible Bigotry" is a quality melodic death metal release by Arghoslent and as I have chosen to look past the lyrical content and not let it affect my rating of the album, I´ll rate this album purely on the quality of the output, which I think is somewhere between a 3.5 star (70%) and a 4 star (80%) rating. I know some people will question why a reviewer who doesn´t share the opinions of an artists like Arghoslent would review their releases, and thereby in part support their music/cause, but I don´t see it that way. As I said above I´ll review anything with an objective mindset, and I´ll let the reader decide if this is something they´d spend their time listening to.

ARGHOSLENT Troops of Unfeigned Might

EP · 2000 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
"Troops of Unfeigned Might" is a 7" vinyl EP by US death metal act Arghoslent. The EP was released through Horror Records in July 2000 in a limited edition of 666 handnumbered copies. 222 of those are on clear vinyl.

While the debut album "Galloping Through the Battle Ruins (1998)" by Arghoslent didn´t exactly feature a pristine sound production, it was still a very charming melodic death metal album. The three tracks on "Troops of Unfeigned Might" are more or less in the same melodic death metal vein (not melodeath) but because of the rather bad rehearsal room sound quality my guess is that these are old demo tracks that have been put on this release. It´s just a wild guess though. These tracks might actually have been recorded after the release of "Galloping Through the Battle Ruins".

Arghoslent have released much better recordings in their career, but while especially the bad sound production considerably drags my rating down, it´s still obvious that the band write really powerful and melodic death metal. Because of the sound quality I can´t give more than a 2 - 2.5 star (45%) rating though.

ARGHOSLENT Galloping Through the Battle Ruins

Album · 1998 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
"Galloping Through the Battle Ruins" is the debut full-length studio album by melodic US death metal act Arghoslent (melodic not melodeath). The album was released through Wood Nymph Records in October 1998. The origial CD pressing was limited to 1000 copies and as a curiosity some copies came with rat bones inside the CD jewel case. "Galloping Through the Battle Ruins" has since been re-released on both vinyl, Cassette Tape and CD through various labels.

The music on the album is pretty old school sounding death metal with lots of melodic and memorable hooks. I remember the first time I played Arghoslent for my older brother and he was positive that they were a Swedish act. That would have been my first guess too, but they are in fact an American act. Lots of harmony work by the guitars means that the album is pretty accessible even though the music is actually rather brutal. Mostly as a result of the vocals being growling and brutal but the music and the delivery of the music are also pretty raw. The tracks feature several shift in pace and they are not strictly vers/chorus based, which make them a bit more challenging to listen to than other artists using the more formulaic vers/chorus songwriting approach.

The sound production is a bit sub-par to the otherwise good quality music, but it´s not that much of a distraction really. In other words! It could have been much worse, and the raw sound do suit the equally raw music. "Galloping Through the Battle Ruins" is a decent first release by Arghoslent and while they would go on to produce better releases later on in their career this one is still recommendable to fans of the band and fans of melodic death metal. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.
