ALBUM THE GUILLOTINE
OUT SEPT 8TH (2017)
LABEL HIGH ROLLER
OUR RATING 81/100
After the demo VICTIM OF THE BLADE, now It's time for a full-lenght fot the NWOTHM prodigy from GERMANY.
An interesting work for all speed metal, classic metal and occult metal addicts.
Before talking about this new album, we want comment the amazing cover, totally in the best tradition..awesome!
Available on cd and vinyl, we believe that the second is right for a work like this.
Let's start from VENDETTA, the 1st single, a speedy song with ossianic and drammatic voice of L.STEELER, with KING DIAMOND drops hither and thither.
GUITAR, DRUMS, GUITAR..in this way starts CLASHING IRON, a more articulated song!
TRIUMPH OF THE GUILLOTINE is remembered for the wall of sound and the awesome solo.
In ELECTRIC ECSTASY we can see, first, more classic metal elements before the song developing in pure speed metal.
In the SIDE B (or SIDE SPEED for the band!), we can find ADRIAN'S CRADLE (in our opinion maybe the best song) .
(THIS NIGHT BELONG) TO THE DEAD starts with a great arpeggio with KB before developing in somethin'classic.
PARAPHILIAC shows a voice at high level, while CRY FOR DEATH starts with somethin'classic and points out great changes of time.
Ultimately, an album that grows gradually during the listening!
