The ever-changing ranks of Vinnie Paz's supergroup put in another strong effort on the fourth full-length LP under the Army of the Pharaohs moniker. Not for the faint of heart, each track on the aptly titled Unholy Terror is an unrelenting barrage of a posse cut with bloody-minded MCs like Celph TitledKing MagneticJus AllahDes DeviousDoap Nixon, and King Syze trading lyrical jabs over hardcore beats built on classical music arrangements to spine-tingling effect. The production craftsmanship is present throughout, from Grand Finale's menacing cello samples on "Godzilla" to Crown's soaring orchestral strings on "Dead Shall Rise" and DC the MIDI Alien's masterful outro scratches that rearrange Jay-Z vocal samples into an Army of the Pharaohs mantra. Vinnie and company have put together another ultraviolent tour de force with 16 tracks of unabashed verbal aggression.
