LostPray – That’s Why – Eigenpressung

Boredom beyond limits!

Okay this band professes to be the new Metallica. Yes for real they actually say that in their press release. They also say that they can surpass Metallica inferring that after the Black Album Metallica had become irrelevant and only LostPray could save the fans for albums such as Saint Anger for instance.

When you first hear the opener Alienation and goes like “wow, these guys are actually good copycats”.

For the second track on, tho, they practically declare that the world needs more ballads like The Unforgiven or Nothing else matters.. the exact phrase is: If you listen to songs like “The blessed one” or “The story ain’t like no one” you feel remembered to the best times of METALLICA (black album). The Americans would be glad to write again such songs like “The unforgiven” or “Nothing else matters”..

Okay, after the second track I will tell ya what they deliver: BOREDOM…. It’s a Metallica assassination.. one after another. The problem here is not that they are influenced and try to imitate Metallica, Ramones, Pink Floyd or Beatles… The problem here is that it seems that the guys of the band only heard some Metallica albums in their life – Megadeth, who are they? – and that’s what causes such boredom in the listener. After the track Zero to Hero one stops to give a fuck, and everything turns to be a bad joke.

I seriously wish to never had listened to this: kill it before it lay eggs!

Rise Of The Northstar – Welcame – Repression Records

No brainer is no brainer.

Rise of the Northstar is a nu-metal band from France with influences of RATM and other bands that I care less.

Rap and metal never was a good mixture and when they add some Japanese things (only these pseudo-nerds can understand these doramas for teenagers) I can say that I can barely digest.

But sure, they have a good production so they will be regarded as the next big “metal” thing in the world by some publications out there so if you’re into fads don’t lose this one.

What the fuck – secretly rolling eyes while trying to express my opinion – it’s a modern metal attempt to be aggressive and they only convince little girls and their grandmas. The refrain is kind of an earworm, but it doesn’t survive more than five spins.

Welcame (Furyo State Of Mind) with all these Biohazard dorama (hahah secretly rolling on the floor while trying to derange the kids subculture) is very heavy with that unbearable beatdown hardcore not so different from the other tracks.

The only interesting track is Samurai Spirit which I believe is their great success, with some ingenuity even though they can’t escape that formulaic, hey-homeboy attitude which irritates me so much. (Look now I’m rapper)

One thing or another can be saved, and when the songs are good they are good. That seems an oxymoron coming fror me and my inherited hatred for this kind of “metal”. But I’m lenient today. Fuck you, I won’t do what you tell me!

Energumen (Switzerland) – Void Spiritualism 7″ EP – Blood Harvest

Obscure sensations in the void!

Energumen (not to be confused with the Norwegian band of the same name) is debuting with this demo that shows an authentic form of so called War Metal or Bestial Black Metal (you know that Blasphemy/Beherit/Sadistik Exekution kind of sound).

There are only 3 tracks of flawless supernatural satanic sounds.

Self Abortion Ritual is a disgraceful yet well recorded track that reeks the organic sounds of 1990’s. Pure cult with fast drums tempos derailed and diluted in the most barbarous ways amidst an insane rifferama, dirty and disgraceful.

Invisible Spears of Abomination is not different, only adding insult to injury with its cruel type of primitive sound and no quarter.

Ekliptik Manifestation of Dominance is even more tangible in its destructive approach and in my opinion is the best track of this short opvs.

 Void Spiritualism is a truly essential item for underground maniaks elsewhere!!!
