what an opening riff! This kicks arse!
Musically, this is a pleasure to listen to. Speed, a bit of melody, thrash with
a metalcore edge, nice harmonies, I'm totally buying into this shit.
Riff-o-friggin'-rama, that's what this is. Thrash granates all over the place.
But, hey, Thomas, sounds as if you can't get your arms down for pure joy. Why is
this not reflected in the rating?
Well, no, there is one simple explanation for that.
To be straightforward and completely frank: I can't for my life cope with the
screaming of front man Remco. It takes a special talent to make screaming sound
really good (reference example: Heaven Shall Burn), and these Dutchmen should
consider coaching their shouter or make him change his style. I think it would
do wonders. Right now, it stands out and disturbs the overall impression.
Otherwise very cool effort!
