Before this brand new album called ’Wasteland Chronicles’ this French band released two albums
which I’m not familiar with... so I can’t compare them to this brand new release.
The French is playing a mix of thrash and (melodic) death metal with a hint of modern touches and
they are doing a quite good job in my opinion. Their catchy but not sappy riffs mostly feel like a nice punch in the stomach and the drummer provide us with ever changing rhythms that invites you to
bang you head like crazy here and there. Just take a listen to track 4 “Shock Doctrine” and they’ll show you how to weave together a song that contains everything most of us like in metal; Melodic riffs that suddenly burst into pure yet controlled thrash... a nice solo, great drumming and so on.
This track rules, boys and girls.
“Wasteland Chronicles” features Kai Hansen, Dirk Schlächter (Gamma Ray) and Julien Truchan as special guests... and that’s another plus in my book.
And last but not least: The production is excellent... crystal clear yet powerful and every instrument is
clearly audible... so there’s no reason not to check this album out now.
