For Death, Glory and the End of the World
Style: "Different" Metal
Release date: February 19th 2010

Damn, this is really a shredder of an album! This is angry music folks!

To begin with I thought this to be far too noisy for my taste, but it has grown on me after some spins, and I'm very respectful to the untamed energy of the whole album - really impressive. It's mostly mid tempo and groovy, but with slower and faster parts in between, so I wasn't bored for a second. Most of the time it's a veritable wall of riffing guitars, crunching drums and a yelling/barking vocal to top it off.

This is my first encounter with this Swiss quartet, consisting of Knut, Impure Wilhelmina, Zatokrev and Mumakil (nicknames I guess? But humorous!) but I think I have to check their previous three albums, although I think they're somewhat faster than this one, but surely I'll give it a try. As inspirational sources are mentioned bands such as Breach and Godflesh, and likeness to Mastodon - I must admit I know very little of these bands, so how much resemblance they have to them I really can't say for sure, I'll leave that to you who knows this stuff. On "Muscle" there is a guest appearance by Gojira-frontman Joe Duplantier.

The cover artwork is well done, and for me it sends the right signals to the buyer, looking a bit like the old paintings of hell by Hieronymus Bosch or the altar tables from a church.

If I'm really pissed off about something or somebody some day, I think this album could be the perfect release to get the frustrations out without having to hit anything...
