It’s “Schwubbel-Wubbel”-Death Metal time again! AMORAL from Hel(l)sinki belt out their kind of Chuck Schuldiner legacy that it smokes! “Wounded Creations” definitely is not original, but really cool. Weird melodies, intricate guitar runs and tons of breaks, still they do not forget the song itself.
A little shot of alcohol in your blood and you’ll find the entrance into the intricate song material. But also non-alcoholics amongst Prog Deathers will soon be drawn into a maelstrom of intense emotions. Well, AMORAL do not reach Karlsruhe’s NECROPHAGIST’s great “Epitaph” masterpiece (yet), but still it’s remarkable. At times the Finns repeat certain guitar parts and even induce doomy parts into their already not super fast style, which sounds good indeed! On “Distract” we even get a shaky keyboard part as on JUDAS PRIEST’s “Turbo”, which spices up the song.
Short and good: A good start for AMORAL – continue like this! (Online May 7, 2005)
