Guest review by
As you might have already read, "Misotheism is a concept album about heresy throughout the years, mythology, legend and lore". This is the third full-length album from Belgium's Gorath and what I can only describe as ground breaking for the band. Its quite a departure from "The Fourth Era", showing the maturity of an artist and with a full band, allowing him to bring out the true colors of Gorath. The "heresy" concept was mentioned by artist, Filip Dupont and then Jurgen S. jumped on board and wrote the lyrics and introduction text. The liner notes are very helpful for those unfamiliar with such things in history and makes "deciphering" the lyrics easier. It is mostly based upon the Gnostic beliefs, traces of the Knights Templar, Cathars and more. To fully appreciate things, you should really read through the lyrics. The layout was completed by FLP himself. The photos are mostly religious in nature, only adding to the affect the band is trying to create.
