4 stars "Schastiye dlya vseh" is the 3rd full-length studio album by Russian technical/progressive death metal act Beheaded Zombie. The album was released through BadMoodMan/Technical Sound in October 2009.

The music on the album is death metal with twisted dissonant riffs and jazzy sections/lead parts. The music and the growling are generally quite brutal but the progressive edge keeps the material intriguing throughout. Id say Beheaded Zombie are more influenced by the early nineties Norwegian death metal scene than they are by Atheist, Cynic, Pestilence and Death, who I guess could be called the usual suspects when talking technical/progressive death metal. Acts like Darkthrone and Cadaver come to mind but its actually the equally obscure Norwegian tech/progressive death metal act Diskord and their "Doomscapes (2007)" album that I hear most references to. The lyrics are in Russian but if that poses a problem to you nevermind as the growling vocals are pretty much unintelligible. I guess really brutal growling is ultimately an universal language.

The 32:11 minutes long album is over before you know it, but it does leave a lasting impression and I found myself greatly entertained. The album has a suiting organic sound production, the musicianship are excellent and the songwriting of a pretty high quality, so if you enjoy technical/progressive death metal with a raw old school twist I can highly recommend a purchase of "Schastiye dlya vseh". A 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

UMUR | 4/5 |
