Very strong thrash/death/black metal from Germany. Defintely one of the better new bands mixing up the three styles. A bit of Morbid Angel, Behemoth + (early) Haunted & Arch Enemy. Plenty of interesting varations, great production and THICK riffage. You gotta have some serious nads if you’re gonna call you album “Diva”, have a cross-dressing in a tophat. Sure beats another ghoulpainted schmuck wielding a spikeclub sitting in his mom’s basement. |
((((1)))) Thrashy, charging mixing black & death metal vocals.
((((2)))) Unrelenting, straight-forward death metal with some nice drum/riff interplay. Nix the annoying “egoism!” chorus, though.
((((3)))) American DM circa 1990 interspered with varied vocal styles (FCC “Fucking suffering”). Pretty close to Morbid Angel’s “Caesar’s Palace”
(((((4))))) Battering black/thrash descending into
slooow death/doom then back again & some silly keyboards. Total metallic apeshittery
!((((5)))) Standard, death/thrash with some groove. The riffing & guitar tone & vocals are good enough to override the weak parts
(((((6)))) Winding slow mosh riff & some Slayerisms (FCC: “Fucking masquerde” sung 3 times)
((((7)))) Dark ambient/noise interlude.
(((((8))))) GIANT stomping riff, with bombastic beats. Incredible guitar work all the way through.
(((9))) Slow, creeping structure kinda gothic doom ‘ala Type O Negative crossed with death metal and gang vocals leads to a nice thrash breakdown.
(((10))) Not too much varation and repetition that doesn’t stay interesting long enough.
((((11)))) More goth-doom with some pretty interesting ‘horror dude’ vocals.
