Style: Death Metal and more
Release date: November 11th 2008
 


At first I wasnít too keen on this album by Spanish Enemy of Myself. Itís been stuck on my PCís and in the car for a long time (yes, I know, the label will probably say thatís itís been way too long Ė sorry!).

 

Something told me that I ought to like it, donít know why.

 

The band has labelled itself melodic death metal, but that isnít the label I would stick on to their music. Well, fair enough, itís that too, however itís also punk-ish in the metalcore way and even holds elements of something I can best define as emo (even though the bandís probably going to kill me for that remark).

 

Now I believe Iíve cracked it. It took some time, but ĎThe Furyí has worked its way under my skin and has grown into an album that I really enjoy. Enemy of Myself without a doubt holds a lot of talent.

 

ĎThe Furyí has versatility, both in terms of the music and the vocal performance Ė growls, screams, clean voice, groove, melody, solos, artificial harmonics en masse and even acoustic guitar, itís got a shitload of good stuff, the entire thing just had to sort of fall into place for me.

 

Iím glad it did Ė you go ahead and try it.
