being one of the best live bands around the Danish metal scene and having to
follow up a strong debut album puts a bit of pressure on you. Needless to say,
expectations run high among both fans and reviewers when a band who was
nominated at the Danish Metal Awards for best debut album and metal cover of the
year sends out new material. And Crocell do not disappoint.
'The Wretched Eidola' is a lesson in death metal pure with melodic tendencies.
There is no experimentation, no fancy orchestration, no female voices, just
heads down metal the brutal way, the fast way and the not-so-fast but waltzing
way. Take The Age of Iron and Rust as a first class example of a groovy hymn
that should please any banger out there. Fans of Morbid Angel and Bloodbath will
not be complaining, that's for sure!
And why not show Amon Amarth that Denmark has something on offer in the genre
they so brilliantly reign? Try the title track of 'The Wretched Eidola'.
