" The lineup in this 'super' group is quite astounding......Rogga Johansson (every Death Metal band in Sweden), Dan Swano (Every band in Sweden),Ed Warby (every band in Holland) Etc....Well maybe ive gone too far....But you get the idea of the pedigree here within "
" Here we have Demiurg's 3rd full length.....Does it sound like Edge Of Sanity?.....Yes......Gorefest?...Yes......Paganizer?...Yes......A bit of all those bands are contained within..However there are much more progressive parts adding to the crushing Death Metal this time. Keyboards ala Swano's solo project swirl around and behind the tracks....Clean vocals of the Male and female kind...Chanting....and such. "
" Now I have never been a big fan of the female voice in Death Metal....Im Sorry !.....I luvs the women..I surely do....But I just never understood the fascination with having the angelic voice aginst the punishing sounds of death. To me it breaks up tracks and takes the quality down a bit.
That being said: There are some fucking cool tracks on this Lp....With regular Crushing Death Metal riffs in almost every song.....With some nice Doom ridden areas and Melodic guitar work...Take for instance 'Travellers Of The Vortex'...Has really good atmospheric melodic guitar passages and creepy vocals to go with it.Vocals: Rogga is awesome...Master of the growling and higher pitched screams..Spot on and goes well with the doomy tracks.Clean voice sounds like Candlemass...Its a take it or leave it affair. Female voice?.....Nice in church...Not on a Death Metal record (my humble opinion) "
All in all a fine record with alot of variation and progressive touches to it...If you dug later Edge Of Sanity..You more than likely will get into this. If you were hoping for a Old Sounding Death Metal Record...Uhhh look elsewhere......The production is crisp but sounds more in the Bloodbath vein than an old Grave or Entombed Lp
Nice To Be Back !.......I apoligize to my faithfull followers !
