Dutch doods doing aggressive death metal. They have a good amount of thrash on this one. Although the melodic parts often sound forced, lacking a natural transition. Otherwise it’s just fine neck snapin’ stuff. Comparable to Centinex, Amon Amarth or Unleashed. |
((1)) Good riffs BUT…short, dorky intro. Sworn Enemy gone death metal? Next!
(((2))) Thick & layered riffs, almost above junk-level “melo-death” but trapped by bad clichés & worse lyrics.
((((3)))) Hella fast, scorching death metal with a few slices of melodic cheese.
((((4)))) More of the usual thrashing death metal but this one is mostly straight ahead.
(((5))) Another halfway compromise: excellent thrashy death metal” and excessive melodic noodling.
((6)) Slow and really saccharine loaded “melo-death” like In Flames. Death metal is NOT happy! Go away!
(7) Icky “power ballad”-ish instrumental. Yikes!
((((8))))) Bombastic, heavy as hell into blasting fast ‘ala Amon Amarth. “I feel so OLD, I HATE this PLACE…THIS CANNOT be REAL!” Think of this next time you’re at work.
((9)) Slow & sluggish mix of DM & regular heavy metal.
(((10))) Great riff reminiscent of Unleashed but again they go a little too long on the “slow, boring & wanky” side here.
