Belarus; home of the KGB, and some big castles and Independence Square, where else would you expect to stumble across a band so full of anger, and these men are some angry ones indeed. Groove Thrash is how they describe themselves and yes this album has some very intense levels of both and thank you very much for asking. This being their debut album they have gone all out to impress, and I must say they have done a pretty good job, But here we come down to the nitty gritty.
I hate to namedrop when an artist is giving their all, but to me this album sounded like they may be huge fans of both Pantera and Lamb Of God. Not a bad thing in itself but it did particularly shine through on a lot of the songs. In the end I gave up trying to work out which one (or the various other artists with a similar leaning)and just decided to take it at face value. Great musicians, extremely energetic music obviously played from the heart, potential plus. For a debut this is as solid as it gets, and they will be well worth watching. It pains me to no end to not find anything overly exciting about this release, but it is what it is, a very well written album that just seems to lack a little on the originality side of things.
Confidence Born is an apt title. You have the confidence guys, now inject a little more of yourselves into your music and I see great things ahead. Take a risk, step outside of the boundaries a little with the solid groundwork you already have and look out world, but definitely keep up the good work. Everyone knows we can never have enough Metal.
