The six Frenchmen call their music: “Thrashed Extreme Music“. As one presumes the guys deliver their own thing, which gives their music a high degree of originality. To describe their music one has to imagine a deep guitar sound, and Thrash mixed with Death Metal. But they don’t just stick to this in the meantime very wide spread combination, there are also slow passages included, and here and there clear vocals as well. Partly clear singing is mixed next to the growling.
I was a bit shocked about the fact that this aggressive music also used a keyboard. They have definitely done something to create their own music, but this step was a bit far-fetched. The whole pressure, which is really well built, is ruined by these symphonic tones. As a whole I find their music interesting and good, but the songs where the keyboard is used are downright ruined. All their deep and sharp riffs are thus neutralised. It’s a bit easier to imagine the music, if you think of very diverse Death Metal with Thrash parts and a keyboard like with DIMMU BORGIR. If they would have been less interested in experimenting, they could have delivered a great album. Diversity and clean parts, all very good, but to put them all in one song is not necessarily good either.
Too many cooks unfortunately spoil the broth. As a whole this album is an average one, cause in some cases they overdo the triggering and the drumming partly sounds extremely artificial as well. But I would not write them off just yet, cause they show great potential, which they could use in a more effective way. (Online January 25, 2006)
