2 stars The debut album from this French death metal combo....... is a death metal album.

A pretty straight talking death metal album it is too. The vocals is the typical growls. The music is pretty standard death metal anno 1995 which leans pretty heavy on Suffocation. It is more melodic though than their countrymen in Loudblast and not anywhere near grindcore. The rhythms, speed and growls are in the Suffocation mode. The guitar solos and some of the guitar riffs is actually leaning towards Death and in particular; Iron Maiden. Death metal light, in other words. Less calories, more taste.

Unfortunate, the taste bit leaves a lot to be desired. None of the songs here raises it's head above decent. There is nothing here I have not heard by other melodic death metal bands and the novelty is wearing a bit thin now. But it is still a pretty OK album which metal heads may like more than a prog head and weaned of metal head like myself. For me, this is just decent and nothing more. This is only a collection item, I am afraid.
