release for the new-born Polish label, dealing with a German 4-piece
dedicated to playing old school Death metal. The average pace is mid-tempo
and the songs are very simple and straightforward owing to the use of
an only guitar. There are occasional accelerations but the songs remain
precise and clean
on those occasions too, without ever reaching extreme limits.
A good chaining of downright riffs is the skeleton of "Walls
of Ignorance", whereas "Empire of the Lie"
and "Age of Depression" seem to me close to Apophis.
Catchy and in your face is "I Should Be Dead", but
probably the best and most creative track is "Forbidden Happiness".
The growls are never too guttural but they are a little more brutal
than the rest in "Age of Depression", which also includes
cool bass lines.
"Self-Exorcism" sees several rhythm alternations in
the vein of Thrash metal riffs and Death metal patterns and vocals,
while the title track and "Amok" are mid-paced compositions
with even rare and almost unperceivable Black metal riffs and blasts,
the latter also including a few groovy passages, putting it a step over
almost all of the remaining ones.
The macabre details of "Koma" close the CD unmercifully.
More variety is expected in future musically and vocally. Last but not
least, a mention goes to the right cover artwork chosen, which probably
represents how I'll end up very quickly thanks to this world fuller
and fuller of buttfucking shitty people (bourgeouis and not).
