The horde of highway outlaws rides on. THE BLACK MORIAH are from Dallas and serve their 2nd studio album with "Road Agents Of The Blast Furnace". This Texas Duo take the folklore of their home state to the chest & play their Black/Thrash Metal with a good deal of ironically built-in Western elements, at least in content. Thematically THE BLACK MORIAH take yourself in their 12 tracks thus only conditionally serious, always a wink can be heard. The Western concept is at least something new in the context with a Black Metal release. Musically, THE BLACK MORIAH tend to peer across the pond and have something left over for brisk & thrashy riffs made in Germany. Especially the last 4 tracks, are a little bit more thrashlike than the rest of the album. They include the ''Twisted Ax EP'', including a GORGOROTH coverversion as last track. "Road Agents Of The Blast Furnace" proves to be a rotten cleaner who puts you in a good mood. Here as a brown double-vinyl edition, limited to 100 pieces only, comes with printed innersleeve packed in gatefold cover.
