Hell Storms over Earth

Rated 3/5 (60%) (1 Vote)

I wanted to like this, but it really sounds like Depressor are doing chaotic and lo-fi for the sake of it and the result sounds kind of half-baked. This band started out as an industrial metal outfit and morphed their sound a couple of times along the way. Hell Storms over Earth, a compilation of 18 songs, does have its moments, mostly in the cleaner parts that are sometimes of early '80s black/thrash à la Venom and Hellhammer, though it's nowhere near as good. To be honest, when I'm in the right mood I can actually listen to this quite a bit, but it ultimately comes off as background scratchy music. There are a lot of good ideas in here, but the execution is flawed, so if the band clean up their act a little, they may be on to something.
