Christ Beheaded are a band from Indianpolis, Indiana that haves some members from some well known midwestern bands and this is a review of their 2008 e.p “Open The Gates Of Hell” which was released by Abyss Records.

Drums are very fast with alot of brutal blast beats mixed in with some slow to midpaced drumming, while the bass plaing is all rhythm bass with fast riffs that follow the guitars.

Rhythm guitars are mostly fast black metal riffs with some midpaced and slower heavy parts that have a blackened death metal feel and a small amount of evil sounding melodies on the last song, while the lead guitars when they are used are noisy and chaotic sounding black metal guitar solos.

Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams while the lyrics cover Anti Christianity, Satanism and death, as for the production it is very raw and primitive the way black metal should be.

In my opinion Christ Beheaded are a good black metal band and while this is not the most original sounding black metal that I have heard Christ Beheaded still put out quality Satanic metal and this is a band that I would like to see in concert, if you are a fan of true satanic black metal you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE “Open The Gates Of Hell” and “The Cleansing Ritual”. RECOMMENDED BUY.
