Album Review

Reviewed 2005-06-08
These French weirdos have a thing for making some rippin’ death metal mixed with a bit of black & doom metal bombast all merging with enough melody & space. The lyrics mostly deal with trees turning on humans - like the first Evil Dead movie, dewd!
((((1)))) Stellar death metal, with suffocating doomed blackness hinting at both Khold and Venom. (“Evil Dead” sample)
(((((2))))) WTF? Chuggin’ thrash boogie then mid-paced doomed heavy rock blasting out into teeth nashing attack and back again.
((((((3))))) Loud & doomed metal ‘ala Venom and Amebix. Later it goes all thrashaholic on you. Fuck yes!!!
((((((((4)))))))) Insanely fast & battering OTT death/thrash/black metal! By all means one of the MOST INTENSE heavy ANYTHING tracks every recorded!
(((((5))))) Winding, mid-paced uglyness ‘ala Autopsy, Khold & Venom.
(((((6))))) Headbangin’, gallopin’ death/thrashin’ mania!
(((((7))))) Bleak yet groovin’, plague wielding heaviness. Killer soloing to boot.
(((((8)))) Claustrophobic, ever-descening doom punctuated by military-like precision.
((((((9)))))) Motorhead cover. They got all the Lemmy-riffic parts but throw it into a death n’ roll style. Extra points for the soloing and dog & cat sounds. Viva la Phazm!
