For those not so familiar, this style/genre is often very dark and bleak, often conveying a sense of starkness and cold while at the same time impressing on the listener a sense of war and conflict. All of those elements are here in The Path of Suffering.

From the Metal Helm website (metalhelm.com), The Path of Suffering was born largely out of struggles and trials the band members were going through during the recording process, and yet, while tested, they were able to focus their reliance on God and faith to overcome the trials.

Those unfamiliar with Elgibbor may be surprised to know that there are around 14 other full-length albums by the band since 2004 and a number of other splits and eps. The band is largely the project of Fire, a one-time Satanist who turned to Christianity and the one who handles all vocals and instruments. For this album, Fire brought on Armath Sargon to handle keyboards and Thundermorr for drums. Continue reading »

The writing process birthed not only Elgibbor’s best work to date but it helped the struggling members to gain footholds against the enemy’s attacks!
