Rated 2.5/5 (50%) (2 Votes)
Well, this band just gets no love at all. Quest of Aidance released two EPs of extremely short, grindy Death Metal, and I am on record as saying I wished they would crank out something substantial. Well, they did that like five years ago and I never heard anything about it. Without a lot of fanfare, Pulverised Records released this, their full-length debut album that did everything I wanted it to do.
Rather than the brutally short bursts of songs on their previous works, this is a real album of real songs. This is pummeling, slightly technical Death Metal that manages to include some hooky melodies without sounding either Melodeath or retro in the slightest. The vocals of new frontman Dan Valstrom are higher-pitched than those of former vocalist Anders Johanson, and I don't like them as much as the old, guttural attack. That said, you can really tell that half this band are veterans of the great Solar Dawn, as they wring out precise, hooky, inventive riffs. A more than worthy album that got missed.
