ALBUM Brain Bleeder
LABEL El Puerto Records
OUR RATING 80/100
The theme of the new album is clearly outlined. Phonomik tells a great story in dark melodious sound mixed modern by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Destruction) and produced by Dito Godwin (No Doubt, Mötley Crüe, KISS).
After tours with RAGE or D.A.D. the Danish quintet also wants to be remembered with “Brain Bleeder”.
It starts with the release concert on February 28, 2020 in the music club "Konfus" in Esbjerg, Denmark and an extensive tour is planned.
After a cinematic intro, it’s time for SUFFER, a song opened by sharp riffs, right groove and strong vocals, all enhanced by contemporary melodic inserts.
CATATONIC OVERLOAD goes on in the same way with a great structure.
CATHARSIS is a really powerful tune, with thrash basis and a lot of groove again, while LUCID FOR YOU shows a squared and “Teutonic” riffing with more melodic chorus; we can find also inserts more melodic and easy.
REBORN is another attack, one of our favs, while GOD’S PIMP is the song which provides the first solo part to remark.
Closer to prog metal next FOREVER UNDONE, while TRENCH TALES, after an intro, is another track so various and interesting.
Another complex structure in the title track.
After DEAD EMBRACE, MURDER and REBEL YELL end in the best way this great platter.
ANOTHER BAND TO TAKE AN EYE ON!
