album by Swedish Death Metal band Anata.
This band was formed in Varberg,
in 1993, but it’s my first encounter with them but it’s not going to
be my last... that’s for sure. I have to check out their back
catalogue because this new release is first class Technical Death Metal.
get ten tracks filled with memorable riffs, melody and awesome drumming.
Just take a listen to tracks like “Complete Demise” or “Better
Grieved than Fooled”, the drumming is more than stunning with
fantastic rhythms and the guitar riffs could very well have been written
by the devil himself.
what about the title-track: “The Conductor’s Departure” - more than
8 minutes of everything I love about Death Metal: heavy as hell guitar
riffs and melody. This track is guaranteed to make your head rattle!
Every time I throw this album in my CD-player I discover new
This CD is very dynamic and offers a lot to the listener, its well
compose and well played and the production is very good, a little
different from most Death Metal releases. The sound is “warm” and it
really suits the music fine. You can hear every instrument clearly and I
really think you should run down to the local music store and check this
album out if you are into Technical Death Metal with a progressive edge.
Pure Metal for the pure Metal fan.
