2 stars Forever... is the debut studio album from Canadian extreme metal act Quo Vadis. They play a style of technical thrashy death metal on Forever... that I normally love but in this case I īm a bit biased.

The music is technical death metal. Quo Vadis doesnīt remind me of any certain band but some of the riffs are similar to the thrashy death metal riffs played by Death. The vocals are extreme and alternates between deep death metal growls and more aggressive thrashy vocals. There are even a hardcore vocal used in Inner Capsule [Element of the Ensemble part II]. So the vocals are pretty varied. In the last track Sans Abris which is taken of a demo from Quo Vadis thereīs also female operatic vocals. That particular song has a different and more primitive production than the rest of the songs. My favorites on the album is album opener Legions of the Betrtayed and the powerful and fast Pantheon of Tears.

The musicianship is very good and I want to mention drummer Yanic Bercier for his excellent drumming on the album.

The production is not very good and it does drag the album down a bit. Itīs not unbearable to listen to, but there is a demo quality element in the sound and itīs like the sound changes between the songs which means that some songs sound allright while others lack power.

Forever... is an inconsistent album which is a bit of a shame as the good parts on the album are pretty good and well deserving a 3 star rating while the ( too) many bad parts drag the album down to a 2 star rating. Iīm expecting great things from Quo Vadis on later albums though, as they definitely have something that intrigues me.

UMUR | 2/5 |
