Lair Of The Minotaur  


Lair Of The Minotaur is a power trio from Chicago with a monstrous sound. This is ultra-heavy, sludgy metal -- a prime soundalike is early Celtic Frost, but itís better to say that LOTM incorporates some CF influences rather than being a CF clone or tribute band. Also of interest is their lyrics deriving from Greek mythology (hence their apt band name). Simply put, this is crushingly heavy stuff, yet somehow they manage to avoid just making noise for the sake of noisiness. Impressive stuff indeed.
