Eye Beyond Sight
The Sun and the Flood
Style: Death Metal
Release date: 23 March, 2012
Playing time: 46:22

This is the second album from the Slovakian band Eye Beyond Sight. It was already released about a year ago, but has now been picked up by Massacre Records. If there would be a competition for most ugliest covert artwork of the year, this one would end in my top ten for certain.

You can expect modern sounding groovy death/thrash. They have a dirty old school sound with a lot of groove and Tamas Patonyi's vocals have a rough and biting sound. If you mix Grave (Soulless) with Sepultura you should have an idea. For the general thrash fan it all sounds a bit too heavy because there is a big portion of death metal involved. Several songs have the usual breakdowns that bring the necessary variation.

After listening to the entire album I am not inspired to listen to it again immediately. The songs don't differ enough and that makes it a little boring. My favorite track is "God's Bite" and that is because the vocals sound the most brutal and sickening in that track. A nice album, but not one that will end in my most favorite records of the year list and that is because it is too mediocre and not special enough.
