Out of stock


This band had a short, but very impressive career. Their début is a striking effort, with brilliant very technical guitar work, not too far from later period Death, although here the death metal elements are not too many; this is mostly power/thrash with a strong technical edge and gruff death metal vocals, which are not very pleasant, and do not serve the great music right.

The music is mostly mid-paced, with a couple of effective speedy outbursts: “”S.O.D.””, “”Ulterior Solitude””. All this is overshadowed by the exquisite instrumental “”The Edge Of String”” – a whirlwind of amazing guitar work. Later you will hear a nice, more technical and atmospheric cover version of Sodom’s “”Remember The Fallen””.

Another super technical instrumental follows suit: “”Candlestick Of Parcass””, and then another, which is quiet, semi-acoustic: “”The Castle Of The Woman Of Mine””, all this finished with a very original joke song called “”Rock’n’Roll””, which mixes a jolly rock-ish melody with vicious brutal riffs.

The album includes 13 compositions.
The music: fast, middle-tempo and occasionally slow but at any speed it was artistically performed and arranged. It was aggressive, hard but shrouded in melody.
The vocals are probably the most outrageous on this particular album. They are harsh and distorted and dramatic feelings are being brought to the listener through the lyrics which mostly dwell upon very personal and not always positive emotions. However the music speaks for itself and it manages to bring forth the most important- the beauty. Even where the lyrics and the whole atmosphere of the song explores the utter darkness, it is always with the touch of beauty that the listener will always enjoy.
