When there is so much drama behind a release, it is usually because the material is not worthwhile. Messengers Of Deception is a staggering exception to this rule. Having been dumped by his label and bandmates, Rob 'The Baron' Miller ditched everything that was written by the departed band members, re-recorded his songs with new musicians and came up with the best crusty heavy metal record of 2020. This album is the product of an imaginary jam between Motörhead, Killing Joke, Amebix, and Primordial. And it is absolutely great.

This is good, my fav still is their debut, this is not so strong, but better as second. Good piece, sortha punk, HM, even 80's synth atmosphere here. Its good band, good album, good singing, unique vocals, a bit Uno Others could sound in next album like this. Good music, I like it, deecent one.

This is a great album. I did not expect it given all the drama that postponed its release and forced a re-recording. All songs are very good to excellent. Listen to "Burn With Me", "VOTL", and "Three Tides" for an idea of what it sounds like but, frankly, the whole album rips.

Oh yeah I forgot how Relapse cucked out and decided to drop them off. Must listen this one.

And I should also listen to the original.

I really loved the first two albums and am an Amebix fan too. Gotta admit Rob Miller going off the rails soured my interest somewhat, I generally have a hard time separating music from the ideology, so I could never f.e. enjoy an NSBM album just for the music, the ideology always ruined it for me. Now, obviously, Miller is merely a conspiracy theorist, not a Nazi. So, he's an idiot. But maybe, just maybe, with this album he'll prove to be an idiot savant. Gotta check it out.

There is nothing either Nazi-friendly or Holocaust-denying in the album's lyrics. Otherwise, I wouldn't staff-pick it.

In my opinion, it is as good as the debut, if not better.
