Hells Headbangers present Australia extreme metal outfit Mongrel's Cross' highly anticipated third album, Arcana, Scrying and Revelation. Th band scored quite the coup in acquiring the legendary vocal skills of Absu's incomparable Proscriptor for their newest endeavor. Bearing the appropriately magica; title of Arcana, Scrying and Revelation, these Aussie hooligans-turned-heroes are set to deliver yet another decisive and undeniable album. If it's no-less-considerable predecessor saw Mongrel's Cross step deeper into territory that's entirely their own, here with Arcana, Scrying and Revelation do the bolstered quartet solidify that rarefied ground. Not for them the over-generalization of "Australia = war metal" nor the simplistic connotations associated with such; still peaking at the height of their compositional powers, Mongrel's Cross remain a great extreme metal entity. All the drama and danger, legendry and lawlessness, power and poison, and essential OTT abandon of this artform otherwise known as heavy metal - everything that Psalter of the Royal Dragon Court so effortlessly played out with a palpably physical poetry - here on Arcana... do they render in more manic and narrative form, no doubt informed by Proscriptor's pioneering work with the singular Absu.
