• Soul Embraced - Mythos "Review"

    22 jui. 2013, 16h22m

    After a five year wait for this album and many teasers it is finally here. Over all I am very impressed by Mythos. I am disappointed that there is only nine songs and one of them is a lack luster instrumental. I was hoping for around twelve or thirteen songs, and a few of their amazing guitar solos. But that aside Mythos is an intense ride from start to finish (excluding instrumental). The guest vocals by Bruce Fitzhugh (Living Sacrifice) was a pleasant surprise and well done. From the hypnotic riffs, the earth shaking blast beats, fast double bass, great guitar work and that one of a kind voice this is definitely considered a masterpiece. I can not say that it outdoes Dead Alive though because that album had a atmosphere all of its own with the guitar solos, symphonic parts and overall rhythm of the entire album. Mythos makes a good run at Dead Alive but does not dethrone it from the top. Hopefully now with their first actual line up we can see more frequent releases.Soul EmbracedMythos[youtube][/youtube]
  • Hope for the Dying - Dissimulation

    1 mai 2011, 3h15m

    I don't even know where to start with the new album. There is so much going on in every song that my mind can hardly handle it. The guitar work is out of this world, wonderfull job on the solos. I love his voice its refreshing, does not sound the same as most bands in this genre do. Drumming is exceptionally good, offers great variety and headbanging beats. Also I love the piano and other instruments in the songs offers variety and gives you a chance to catch your breath. This album is going to need a lot of plays just so I can hear everything. I needed something fresh and different to satisfy my musical hunger, and Dissimulation did just that. The new album greatly exceeded my expectations and pushed Hope for the Dying high up on my favorites list.Hope For The DyingDissimulation

    Well The Showdowns new cd left me speechless so i dont have much to say. Except go out and buy it you will not be dissapointed. The opening track is epic amazing what they have done with this album. The slower softer songs are really good they did an amazing job with them. Also there is a hidden track number 11 which is just as good as all the others. I dont know why they did not officially have it on there with all the others and give it a name. Anyways this is one work of art that i will be listening to non stop for a long time. Hope anyone that reads this will at least check it out and give it a listen. Maybe even go and pick it up?The ShowdownBlood In The Gears
