ESQARIAL combine sometimes MACHINE HEAD-like riffing, sometimes ICED EARTH leads with harsh Death shredding with low growls and cool clean vocals, sometimes they blast very Old School... They deliver us a really diversified album that will make you insane. Double bass massacre meets super precise blasts and the super melodic leads seem to be as easy as possible. The same goes for the dreamy solos, reminding of guys like Steve Vai or Joe Satriani. A real killer band, hardly to compare with other bands – but let met state that there music is really great. The sound is technical but not too progressive, with much breaks but always accessible. Furthermore, their record should be also interesting for people, who like acts like INTO ETERNITY or DEATH.
Once again a band from Poland, unbelievable what there happens concerning Death Metal. I can only think of the ingenious VADER, the brutal BEHEMOTH or bands like SCEPTIC, LUX OCCULTA, MUTILATION or HATE... These are all great Death Metal bands. But ESQARIAL even started in 1991, after two demos followed two regular records, unfortunately I’m not familiar with them. To be honest, “Inheritance” is the first one I know from this band. But this one caught me totally and I can only recommend you to order it, it’s absolutely worthwile! (Online October 6, 2004)
