- "Age Old Nemesis"
The French Extreme Metal scene is not new to the alertest
fans, but, for a series of reasons it has never been able to achieve
big popularity levels that it should have, and at this moment very good
bands like Agressor, Blockheads, Misanthrope are the first ones to pop
into my mind. The relatively new entity that could reverse this tendency
goes under the monicker of DROWNING, a furious 5-piece that, as it clearly
distinguishes itself in the opener "Frozen Inferno"
adores to mix elements dear to Deicide, Malevolent Creation, Morbid
Angel and the crème of Floridian Death Metal, along with massive
HC injections, fitted out with pessimistic and depressive, though realistic
lyrics about man's self-destruction and its bent to exploit and then
eliminate the weak like the primitives used to do or simply animals
have always done, as one can easily deduce from the CD and song titles.
