BAND JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN
ALBUM THE GERMS OF CIRCUMSTANCE
LABEL SOULSELLER RECORDS
OUT Oct 9th, 2020
OUR RATING 84/100
Two legends of Death Metal - Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Revolting, Ribspreader, etc) and Paul Speckmann (Master) - have joined forces to realize Johansson & Speckmann's The Germs of Circumstance, due out on October 9 on Soulseller Records, the fifth album in the history of this project.
We can say that in this platter all sounds faster and harder and more aggressive than before.
The title track is the first shot, with pressing rhythms, scratchin’ vocals and a guitar solo fast and effective.
ONE WORLD ONE LEADER shows thrash elements, while TAKE THE LIONS SHARE shows a death soul and a doom central break.
They go on with brilliant I WAS LEFT TO STARE, while GENERATIONS ANTIDOTE is pressing, a real kick in the teeth.
CONFESSIONS OF A VITAL LEADER is one of our favs, between pressing drums, death elements and smashing solo parts.
After PROVOKE THE COLLECTIVE we can find DEVOUR ENGAGE.., a mad run which ends in the best way this great platter.
