Mephistofeles - A Path of Black (CD Ltd.)
01. Lucifers Hellride
02. Electric Ripper
03. A Path of Black
One of the cultest names in the underground, MEPHISTOFELES hail from Argentina and
have prolifically perfected a literally addicting blend of garage rock, stoner doom, and
ritual atmosphere that truly puts the SATANIC in Satanic panic! From 2013 onward, this
power-trio have been pumping out one sonic drug after another, from singles and demos
to EPs and even live albums, all culminating in three full-lengths to date. And now,
longtime fans HELTER SKELTER PRODUCTIONS will be reissuing parts of
MEPHISTOFELES’ back catalog as well as some new recordings.
The first of these new recordings, A Path of Black is a quick-hitting slab of
MEPHISTOFELES at their darkest, druggiest best. Featuring three brand-new songs, A
Path of Black is aptly titled: there’s garage-rockin’ energy to spare, but you literally feel
the darkness dragging you down like a drug you can’t shake. If anything, this EP
emphasizes the ROCK far more than the doom, but it’s all recognizably their signature
sound. And like all MEPHISTOFELES’ recordings, each of these three tracks is as
immediately memorable as the last, the trio’s swagger truly something to behold.
