Four years after their self-titled debut WYNJARA, the band around former MALEVOLENT CREATION guitarist John Paul Soars, returns to the surface. Of course the album sounds extremely close to MALEVOLENT CREATION, the past cannot be concealed, but why should it? At times the album also has a certain VADER touch, which is not the worst possible reference either. So if you bring these three onto on common ground, the result is clear: SLAYER! Who has not been influenced by this once giant band?
In the case of WYNJARA we also get a healthy melodic touch. The guitar melodies for example on the murderous cracker “Laughing As They Die“ only leaves the conclusion that the band also likes several Power Metal combos. All songs are very competently crafted, intricate, but still wild, veteranhood combined with the young wildness. Btw, fans of CORONER’s “Grin” should definitely listen into “Shallow” as well, it’s worth it. Well, basically any fan of Thrash/Death Metal should somehow get WYNJARA’s “Human Plague”.
