"The Rise Of Brutality"
7" EP (1995 Deathvastation Productions)
FUCK OFF TRENDY BASTARDS!!!
The latest Krabathor release
so far is a 7 inch EP with self-explaining title: "The Rise Of
Brutality". It's a tasty appetizer for the new record that's just
coming out, called in a simple and straight way "Lies". What's on the
EP? The songs that Krabathor recorded last year for their promo
directed only to music labels. Three songs are preceeded with a
stylish intro, that can be considered untraditional at the same time.
Then the first song hits you - "Pain That Does Not Hurt". You can
easily recognize the band in this song, mainly due to the vocals,
because musically the band has grown even more brutal and extreme when
it comes to death metal done their way. The second one is called "The
Truth About Lies". More elaborate song which offers so to say catchy
brutality. The last one, "Unnecesarity" has the most hitlike ambitions
of the three and is the best in my opinion. Vocal duties are shared by
two of the main persons in Krabathor - i.e. Christopher and Bruno,
which makes the whole sound interesting. Solo and choruses are also
nice. The sound and instrumental qualities of the EP are great, there's
a nice cooperation in the arranges of individual instruments. It's
true, that the sound is very raw , but it is by now means a
shortcoming. If you haven't got the EP, you might not be fine tuned
for the "Lies" album, so go ahead and get the ten minute collection
Note: The review was released in 3.-4. double-issue of the METAL
BREATH (33/1995) fanzine.
