Review by JD on August 23, 2010.
Czechoslovakian Metal is usually blatantly brutal in its delivery, maliciously sadistic in it’s messages and comes across completely unrelenting in every aspect you can get. That was why Six Degrees Of Separation caught my attention right from the first note. This is not Death Metal... it as heavy as any Death Metal, yet is more than that.
Musically smooth yet still being profoundly heavy at the same time... Six Degrees Of Separation comes across as being artists that have made an astounding framework that ends up delivering some very staggeringly impressive metal. Old school metal melts fits perfectly into some shifting Nu-metal that is painted with a Power Metal vibe which seems to fuel the whole thing. When all of these varying style become well blended together, the results is a ‘wow’ factor moment that is off the charts.
Slamming through eleven extremely well crafted metallic masterpieces that are on the CD, Six Degrees Of Separation maintains a remarkable grasp of making some of the most unforgettable melodies while still taking your head off with each and every slashing and biting guitar line. Each part of the band works together as one, each member contributing to the sound which shows that point outright.
Six Degrees Of Separation have released one of those albums that just may surprise even the most jaded of us headbangers. It is all there on one shiny little disk, power, heaviness, intelligence and just overall metallic to the maximum, what more can a self respecting metalhead possibly ask for?
