When you compare the evolution of TAETRE between their first album, "The Art", and their second one, "Out Of Emotional Disorder", we could all have imagined that their third one would be even softer, and, who knows, quite destined to a wider audience? Well, no, because with "Divine Misanthropic Madness" TAETRE made a big step back, and are now dirtier than a few years ago.
The melodic Death Metal era seems to be finished, and we are now closer to a good old Swedish Death Metal record from the early 90's than to an IN FLAMES one, all the more that there is a slight and fucking cool Rock'n'Roll side here and there… It kicks some ass then, even if there are sometimes some melodic parts, quite well-done too. The track "No Love" is the perfect example for a Metal hit, mixing together fat guitars, Death Metal vocals, and melodies that will make girls wet.
What else could I say? TAETRE is a Swedish Metal band designed for men, and it's way better than all those Swedish Metal bands for girls! (Online May 6, 2003)
