to breed true
LESS THAN UMAN – “To Breed True” (Yperano / White’n’Black)
Very interesting this Greek five-piece that comes with an album entirely recorded in England, and finished, in part, even at the famous “Abbey Road Studios”. The sound is really dark and aggressive, close to the Sepultura of “Arise”, although at times also approaching New Metal and the more violent Thrash-core. The “Mega Food” opener is affected by the vocal lines of Hetfield expressions of the “..And Justice” era, which we also find in pieces like “Trigger Happy” and “Broken By You”. It continues with very “modern” songs, close to the first Machine Heads, such as “Perfect Time To Explode”, “Who’s Fault”, “Keep Your Distance”, while “More Or Less Human” is the classic “breathless pull” for a headbanging of yesteryear. Traces of heaviness and vague Sabbatean atmospheres can be found in “Suffer In Silence” and “Tooth Broken” for an album that ends with the sick Thrash-core of “It Is Hell …”. Definitely a good record, engaging even if not really innovative. Recommended.

Phlegmatic Sun
SUPER NOT – “Phlegmatic Sun” (Yperano / White’n’Black)
Premise: I was absolutely unaware of this James Hetfield side project. How do you say? Isn’t he the one singing? So who is the author of the songs, so similar in all respects to the latest Metallica productions ??? These Canadian guys must have spent a little too many evenings listening to “Load” or the “Black Album” and the result is this “Phlegmatic Sun”, a pleasant, if too derivative record.  Super Not is modern music but with ears attentive to the sacred lessons of the past: echoes of Black Sabbat. The Doors and Kyuss are felt almost everywhere along the 11 tracks of the disc (the final cover of the famous “Break On Through” it seems extremely significant) and the sound, dark and heavy, with the hypnotic voice of the singer, an authentic clone of Hetfield. The energetic “Acid Machine”, the enveloping title-track and the Sabbathian “Needle In The I”, are successfully done and are great.
