Wow, I wouldn't have expected this from Finnish THYRANE. The two earlier albums had been good,, if unspectacular Melodic Black Metal, but "The Spirit Of Rebellion" is brilliant!
They still play malicious Black Metal, but so creative and energetic that it takes my breath away. Great riffs and insane double-bass-attacks everywhere. And they took a good bit of traditional Heavy Metal into their sound, a song like "Soulless And Broken" could go through as pure Thrash.
And the keyboards sometimes are pompous, sometimes spacy or just present a carpeting, but never forcing into the foreground! The super-fat Tico-Tico-production adds its part to the whole! Who still thinks that Black Metal were drained, listen to this piece of black flesh. Bon Apetit!
