German band Anima (Latin for soul) is back with the follow-up of 'The Daily Grind'. There has not been a big style-change, so if you came on that one, you will ejaculate on the new record too. Brutal grinding (technical)-death-metal with grunts, squeals and tight riffs.
I think this record is even more brutal and heavier than 'The Daily Grind'. The complex rattling drums in combination with the rhythm-changes and the technical skills don't make this an easy-listening album. You have to be rather open-minded to like it. Personally I am not a very huge fan of grindcore and for that I like the death parts more, but without these grinding pieces the band would not be Anima anymore. A big advantage for them is the sound of the album; Sebastian Reichl (Deadlock) has created an extremely HEAVY sound and when you play this kind of music that's a must. The only track that differs a lot from the bunch is "XXXIII" - a kind of epic track with choir singing and violins (sampled), but definitely pure Anima.
'Enter the Killzone' takes off where 'The Daily Grind' stopped, so no surprises, but fuckin' brutal!
