Conqueror's ashes a new form of putrid and highly corrosive grind/death/black
metal was born under the unreassuring monicker of Revenge. A MCD and
an EP at their shoulders, the eventual inclusion to their line-up of
the mythical Pete Helmkamp's experience, and there you have a new cult
Unthinkable levels of violence, velocity, as raw and rotten as fuck
diverse kinds of vocals, of which I most of all like the 'possessed'
ones. How to resist the attraction of the initial riff and the vitriol
or sometimes ultraguttural vocal sounds of "Blood of My Blood",
closed by a decimating guitar solo and convulsed parts; in a similar
manner is "Heathen Hammer" too.
If you like Order from Chaos, Revenge will make you go crazy, especially
"Altar of Triumph". Fairly seldom have I heard something
farther from melody or the mere concept of song, with the exception
of "Blood Division", and it is indeed a deep pleasure
to listen to so many personal solutions in the same CD. Revenge: Total
ascending mass destruction.
