It takes so much to get a sound to completely convey what it is trying to say. It takes talent, a fertile mind and a deep seated desire to do it and that passion to let nothing stand in the way. Sweden and Death Metal is like that, a match in heaven (or hell). Vicious Art
is a band that does their best to give to the world, the best... not to mention the nastiest Death Metal ever.
Sweden always has the best in the realm of Death Metal, and the innovators as well. The band Vicious Art
comes from this large and diverse melting pot of extremes of metal. With some of the most monumental wall of pure heaviness and blood-soaked lyrics ever produced since the Death Metal supergroup Bloodbath
, Stockholm based Vicious Art
makes extreme metal a true
One listen to tracks like the ferocious 'Cut This Heathen Free' not to mention the titanic sonic attack of 'Fire Falls' - you get the unmistakable term for Death Metal. This cannot be any more brutal or explosive of music, as this band has found the right way to do it. With sonic malice and blood soaked words, they do no personify what it is to play some of the most extreme of metal ever,
The thing that ties it all in is the recording. Whoever did it found the perfect balance between rawness and the clarity... a feat only a handful of producers and engineers can do. Christmas came seriously early for all of us, and the tree is decorated with rotting entrails and brain matter - think Vicious Art
has killed the overweight old man Christmas to get into the blood stained Yuletide spirit.
