Ektomorf - Destroy

Add one part classic MACHINE HEAD and sprinkle in SOULFLY for spice and you get Hungary's newest bad boys. This is music that will not only have you bouncing up and down, but get your blood boiling. “I Know Them“ may not exactly be complex or all that unique, but there is plenty of rhythm going on with thunderous drumming and bass licks that will crumble the very foundation you are standing on right now. The song boasts a lot of catchy riffs and licks and makes for good pit music.

 

Each track continues to remain in your face until the very end. The band never lets up, but there is enough rhythm, melody and hook to keep you interested for the duration. While you have the following ingredients mentioned, there is a raw feeling to the songs which prevents them from being too slick or polished and that works because if they were oil slick then the feeling of the bands aggression would be lost and forgotten. The lyrics may be simplistic, but the point gets across loud and clear.

 

Fans who continue to love the rough, rugged and rhythmic sounds of misery and anger should take to this CD very easily. (Online September 24, 2004)
