Album Review

Reviewed 2007-05-30
Death (metal) and (rock'n') roll fer sure. This French band of mixes up Voi Vod, later-era Entombed, Sigh, and a few unexpected elements (like banjo & blues harmonica!?!) It all makes for some interesting results.

(((1))) Slowish heavy rock/metal with occasionally death metal riffage.
((((2)))) Midpaced that quickly builds to some killer uh…”sci-fi thrash metal”? Nice soloing, blast beats & crazy slide guitars.
(((3))))) Straight-ahead “chuggy” riff based & lots of wah-wah solos ‘ala some band called Metallica. (FCC “fucking” sung once)
(((4))) Flat “blues” harmonica intro, slow, winding & dull but manages to throw in some nice riffs here & there.
((5)) Sounds like a “brutal version” of White Zombie not a wise move.
((6))) Slow, intro w/vague “throat sung” vocals. More pointless “dicking around”
((((7))) Riffy, slow & descending into the abyss. Sorta like Sigh crossed with a slow Venom song.
(((((8)))))) Zig-zaggy, speedy & aggressive, old Swedish D.M. sound brought into the future. Kick ass solois, headbangin’ riffs abound.
((((9)))) Banjo? Harmonica? Country folk blues jam. Nice but totally odd & outta place.
(((10))) Jagged, mid-paced and sort of compelling in its all-out heaviness & repetition.
(((11))) Acoustic interlude with harmonica.
((((12)))) Very HEAVY DOOOOOM! Sluggish and resonating but the 2:20 of mellow noodling could’ve been cut.
