MetalBite Review by Adam on 8/15/2001
In the past few years the death metal genre has become bigger with many great and talented bands coming up and showing what they are made of. Krisiun
have been around for quite a while, but are associated with this new wave of death metal. There music may not be that original and they do seem to get pretty repetitious at times, but the fact remains that these are incredibly talented, fast, and brutal.
"Conquerors Of Armageddon"
is a huge improvement from their last release both quality and music wise. The music is a little more technical this time around and the speed these guys reach at times is just insane. That doesn't however, take away from the fact that this cd does become a little boring after a while since the songs really are not that diversified at all.
Vocal wise these are a little different from your average brutal death metal band. A bit higher than your annoying cookie monster growl and a step lower than your piercing scream. The guitar playing is just fantastic on this record and some of the solos just leave your jaw on the floor. As far as drumming is concerned, it is impressive but the contanst blasting does get old after a while. There are a couple times where he goes a little faster and a little slower from your normal blast but it isn't often and it leaves it making the record sounding like one long song.
Overall the record is not without its strong points and they definetly have what it takes to catapault them to the epicenter of the brutal death metal movement. They just have to prove themselves by diversifying their music to insure longevity within the evergrowing death metal genre. I am now anxiously awaiting this band's followup. If they add just enough diversity and keep their signiture crazy riffs and solos intact they just might have a brutal death masterpiece on their hands!
For fans of brutal death only. This is for serious metalheads who like constantly fast and intense music!
