After making four albums we didn't hear anything from this German band for a
long while. Suddenly after 10 years they have come up with their fifth album
'Five Scars'. The band plays straight melo death with high tempo changed by
slower parts. The grunts are varied with clean singing and I have to say that
the clean vocals are better than on their earlier albums. Dan Swäno sat behind
the mixing buttons and that gives the album a good sound.
biggest part of the tracks are rather up-tempo, but the songs "The Tides of
November" (with violin part) and "A Mouthful of Death" have more slower doomier
parts in it too. The band matured, especially in writing better songs. The
comeback of this band is a rather good one and the new album is far from
redundant. If you are a sucker for Melodic Death, you should certainly take a
listen to this one.
