3 stars "Menace And Prayer" is the debut full-length studio album by Finnish death metal act Throne of Chaos. The album was released through Spikeform Records in 2000.

The music on "Menace And Prayer" is very melodic heavy metal/death metal in the vein of Children of Bodom. I will actually go as far as to say that the music on "Menace And Prayer" is almost a complete clone of Children of Bodomīs music. The vocals are raw/raspy, the music is dominated by melodic guitars and keyboard leads and the rythm section is close to power metal style playing. Being a clone donīt always mean that the music is bad though and in the case of the music on "Menace And Prayer" weīre treated with some really well written compositions, great musicianship and a powerful sound production. A very enjoyable album if you like the style.

Despite the obvious Children of Bodom influences in the music I will rate "Menace And Prayer" with a 3 star (60%) rating. Simply because the quality level is as high as it is. But donīt expect much else than a good clone of Children of Bodom and you wonīt be disappointed.

UMUR | 3/5 |
