I don't know why, but I couldn't never deal with KRABATHOR - their ultra fast, technically perfect Death Metal isn't something for me. After the exit of bass player/singer Bruno, it followed the boring "Unfortunately Dead"-album and I thought this album very unimportant. Many blamed it on Paul Speckmann (no, not Hawk but MASTER), who joined the band as substitution for Bruno and celebrated his start with the band. Maybe right because the songs aren't the best ones at all.
Now the Czechs release their second album in this line-up and destroy all doubts! "Dissuade Truth" strikes up with the ending of "Orthodox". Already the first song shows which band is playing. Short after the gloomy intro, you get a pretty cool Death Metal breaker with the titelsong, especially the midpart bangs a lot. Those riffs and drums are really "KRABATHOR-typical". The follwing songs are all similarly-constructed and offer a jaunty tempo. Unfortunately everything seems very predictable, technically on the top, but it doesn't unleashes some emotions in me.
Maybe KRABATHOR are superstars in their home country, but I feel a bitter smack with them. (Online March 31, 2003)
