Power of Metal.dk Review

Prey For Your Gods
Style: Death/Thrash Metal
Release date: 22 November, 2013
Playing time: 46:53

To celebrate their 20 years of existence this German band releases their third album. I don't know why it has taken them so long to release albums, we have to go back to 2005 for their second release called 'Escaping the Stupor'. Since then several members have left and only singer Claudio Enzler and Mario Henning (drums) are playing on this album.

After 20 years existence you can hear that the musicians are very experienced and know what they are doing. Their music is a mix of old school death metal with a big bunch of thrash riffs. At the right time they vary the brutal parts with more melodic pieces. The band is strongly influenced by the band Hypocrisy if you ask me and perhaps they have also been influenced by some Dutch death metal acts. The only thing I miss on this album is that they never paint outside the lines, it all sounds so safe. For sure the music on the album is good, but there are no surprises and that keeps me from giving them a higher rating.
