                Light the candles, don the acolytes cowl, draw the pentagram, rally the cabal and get ready to summon the Elder God. To do all this, we have to head to Peru because Maze of Terror (MoT) have just released their latest album ‘Offer to the Fucking Beasts’.

                From its eerie chanted opening, the listener knows where the left hand path which MoT take with ‘Offer…’ will lead. This path leads to an excellent album of thrash metal, it doesn’t waste time fucking around and from ‘Priest of the Ancient Ones’ to ‘Shub Niggurath Awakes’, ‘Offer…’ sacrifices everything in its wake to please their dark master. Tracks such as ‘Angels of Acid’, ‘Destroy and Control’ and the superb ‘Blood Horror Cult’ roar with the energy of Nervosa and Destruction as well as Sodom and Sadus as the guttural rasps that lead through the album having all the thrashing energy of Schmier as well as leaning upon a death metal crutch that would enthral fans of Tom Angelripper and Fernanda Lira.

                ‘Offer…’ is an interesting album that adds a Lovecraftian theme to thrash metal, whilst this has been done before, with this album it doesn’t matter, MoT deliver a fresh approach to the horrors within. Therefore any fan of thrash metal and the writings of H.P. Lovecraft will find this release to be a real gem of the year.

"an excellent album of thrash meets Lovecraft"
