AVATAR Live in Austria

С родины кровавых упырей пришёл нехарактерный для загадочных местностей МELODIC DEATH THRASH METAL промач-концертник, записанный бандой по пребывании в соседке Австрии (Зальцбург) на фесте Spring Metal. К сожалению сплошные провалы в записи не дали полной картины объективности. Румын не назовешь жёсткими  звуковыми DEATH металлерами, как бы не старался их вокалист разрушая гроулом на румынском маленький  пивметалклуб. Гитаристы выдают мелодичные партии с элементами прогрессивных интонаций и приёмов, которыми пользовались CARCASS на “Swansong”. Также здесь можно встретить и этнические вышивки, такой фолковостью банда захотела наверно подчеркнуть своё румынское происхождение. AVATAR отдаёт духом древности Heavy – стандартов и никак не блещет пребыванием на свежести ритмов.. Лишнее это дело – слать для знакомства живьё, камерности присутствия не прибавит, а кому любопытно самому убедиться, что AVATAR стоят на сцене рискните попробовать заказать у AXA VALAHA distro заботливо следящих за ними.

Italy attacks! At last I have again heard qualitative sounds from those places united by one habitat. All gangs from one area and sincerely hang together. Besides the given collection is dated memories local heroes of metal from gang MONOLITH (F@#king Heavy Cult!) .Open this disk AXEVYPER. They play for music’s tightened in a skin and striped stockings, sample TRUE HEAVY METAL on a manner similar on classical IRON MAIDEN. Bestial! As the following they act FALLEN F@#KING ANGELS with two compositions OLD SCHOOL HEAVY / SPEED METAL very sincerely and fervently execute the material. I will recommend this gang, all who respects creativity EXCITER / IRON ANGEL / TANK!!! Perfectly well! BELLISSIMO! Relay race pick up original TWILIGHT ZONE.I don’t know that in Italy live such qualitative HEAVY METAL steel wars! To me they were remembered rhythmical riffings and a unique vocal with a high range of a voice! MONOLITH – here act, the highlight of the program. As well as it is necessary to protagonists of day for, this release they have selected the two powerful compositions full of an expression and emotions. On heat I would compare them, to the best period of such gods as MANOWAR and KILLERS! Certainly at them notes similar with BON FIRE / MOTLEY CRUE come across, but tell who at that time did not sing about passionate fire in the opinion of blondes! Ha-ha! Excellent there was a legend! Well and for a dessert on it collections have allowed to be realized infernal to change in the name of SCAVENGER. They have decided to finish all in the end surgical DEATH METAL within the limits of old sounds. CARCASS? SCAVENGER! I was glad, listening to such music deprived of pathos and a commercial plan. Italians with all the heart! VIVA LA HEAVY MUSICA!

DEATHBOUND Non compos mentis

I sincerely miss on those far times when NAPALM DEATH did exclusive GRIND CORE without any impurity and commercial features. This Finnish group beginning as BRUTAL DEATH METAL a gang subsequently, was transformed in rectilinear GRIND CORE. New a disk by means of DYNAMIC ARTS Records means the new chapter in the history of this Finnish band. Besides this disk they put end to the fifteen-year experience on a scene. Such result. 14 sick numbers have fallen down our heads in classical GRIND CORE execution. POWERFULL!!! Sounding on the maximum speed and a threshing mode. The plate cover “Non compos mentis” has reminded me memoirs on early drawings CARCASS. I consider them at present as one of the heaviest groups in Finland along with DEMILICH and ROTTEN SOUND. Brutal and ruthless art from the country of thousand Lakes! Even after sounds in end of 14 compositions have abated, in a head noise DEATHBOUND all the same continues to manage! CRUSH!!! KILL!!! AND BROKEN BONES!!!
