Prey For Nothing
Against All Good and Evil
Style: Technical Death Metal
Release date: 9 December 2011
Playing time: 70:00

Their 2008 debut album 'Violence Divine' made a good impression on me. My colleague Thomas was rightfully very enthusiastic about this Israeli band in his review. Can this second album top that album? For now I'm not completely convinced that it does (yet). They carry on with the style from that album and there is musically nothing wrong with the new songs. The only thing that you can say about it is that it is more of the same.

Yotam 'Defiler' Avni's vocals sound a lot like Chuck Chuldiners (RIP), every now and then he adds some lower grunts and a sporadic clean part. The music is very technical in the line of Death's 'Human' and 'Individual Thought Patterns'. Together with Yotam's vocals it sounds even more like Death. Besides that the band puts in some Swedish melodic In Flames sounding elements. A combination that makes the music interesting. Nevertheless you can also conclude that we have heard it all before and that the length of the songs is sometimes too long and the variety between them is not big enough. After the fifth song it becomes a little bit boring.

Final conclusion is that they didn't impress me that much with this album than they did with their debut. That won't keep me though from giving them a good rating because if you are a fan of technical death metal in the style of the mighty Death, you will find a lot of music to enjoy on this album.
