HateSphere, the second time! While I listened attentive to their debut, they dash me with their second work straight against a wall! Basically, HateSphere play the typical Melodic Death of bands like AT THE GATES/DARK TRANQUILLITY, which is played badly by uncountable other bands. But here rules a merciless power and the songs also go beyond the scope of this genre!
"Hell Is Here" is an first class Thrash song and it glamours with a virtuousy solo a la Yngwie and with a great break. Or what is about the 2 minute eruption "Plague"? This is a song, which is crushing your head systematically! Granats like "Insanity Arise" are just merciless, very complexly and brutal as possible! "Disbeliever" is very strange and the height of this record, it is a mighty song, which glamours with clever tempochanges and coquettes with some organic and acoustic guitar sounds. Very cool!
The other stuff is also very hard, diversified, deadly or thrashy - with this one you will sit in the first row! I just keep silent to the playing time! (Online September 13, 2002)
