Brainscab Review=Count Raven: Mammons War

I say, “Out with the old! In with the new!” Yes, there will always be the classics of “Parinoid” an “We Sold Our Soul For Rock ‘n’ Roll”. You can now take that mic out of Ozzy’s shaky hand and let Zak have his “Black Label Society”. Count Raven can step in and take over and add their own twist to the early “Sabbath” sound. With “The Poltergeist”, “Scream”, “Nashira”, “The Entity”, “Mammons War”,”A Lifetime”, “To Kill A Child”, “To Love, Wherever You Are”, “Magic Is…”, “Seven Days”, and “Increasing Deserts” are worthy of the mantle that was set by “Black Sabbath” in the beginning. SO if you have not figured it out yet “Count Raven” has a sound like what early “Sabbath” had mainly in the vocals but now take the music has the same down tune that “Tony” is famous for but add in the melodic feel of “Type O Negative” an you get “Mammons War”. Weather its gothic or just plain metal, I don’t care what you call it. These masters of darkness have picked it up an made it their own. So, Ozzy keep your Hollywood and you are no longer the “Prince Of Darkness”. “Count Raven” Owns that title and has a firm grip on it.
