With the low rumble building up at the start of this slab of brutal south american death metal, it is obvious that something harsh is going to happen to the condition of your stereo speakers and/or your head. The answer will probably be both! This one of the most intense and fast purley blast beat driven albums of recent years.As such acts depend on past achievements (morbid angel anyone?)Krisiun just destroy.Many may argue that the lack of change in pace is a bad thing but this cannot be further from the truth.If you like your death metal as fast as it gets this album will not dissapoint at all!

Good Death Metal (4 1/2 stars) 14 Oct 2002
By "angelofmorbidity" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I came across this CD as well as 'Ageless..' used at CD store, and I had heard of Krisiun, so grabbed both discs. I was not dissapointed. The vocals are not weak, though people say so, the bass is audible and well played, the guitar and drum work is awesome. Yes, Krisiun is similar to Morbid Angel, but Moyses(guitarist) really has a style of his own, especially his fathomless-layered solos. Also, the vocal attacks by Alex(bass and vocals) also add to Krisiun's own unique style.
The Band-
Alex Carmago, bass and vocals- Alex has a voice of his own- deep yet understandable. I also give Alex big ripping metal points for playing such complex rhythms on his bass while singing as well. It can't be easy.
Moyses Kolesne, guitars- Moyses is the one that makes Krisiun's music truly stand out among the other death metal bands. He has a very unique style thats kind of hard to describe. The problem is that Moyses is the only guitarist, but he still makes up rhythms and solos that only two or even three guitarists could play. So some of the solos won't sound so great live! Oh well, they still sound great on CD. Check out Moyses's work on songs such as Cursed Scrolls, Soul Devourer, and Intro/Ravager.
Max Kolesne, drums- Although Max plays some wicked fast and complex drum rhythms, a lot of Krisiun's work follows the same pattern- just blast beats through the whole song. I have heard that people don't like this album because it's repetitive, and I think the drumming just adds more fuel to that fire. BUT, Max still has some really cool drum rhythms on such Cured Scroll, Intro/Ravager, and Abyssal Gates. Plus this guy must have some incredible endurance.
A good collector's item for those death metal fans scavaging the scene. This probably would also be a nice starting disc for new fans of death metal.

A monster and a half! 28 Oct 2007
By A. Stutheit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Some metal bands never make the same album twice; they spend their whole constantly career finding new ways to experiment with and change their sound. Krisiun is definitely not one of those bands. Instead of trying to achieve a vastly new or original sound, this Brazilian trio play it safe and focus their efforts on being even faster, tighter, and heavier than last time (if that's at all possible). As a result, what most of their albums lack in innovation, they more than make up with monstrous brutality.

This is the case on Krisiun's third full-length, 2000's "Conquerors of Armageddon." What is the band's policy on this album? Take absolutely no prisoners, and scorch every last inch of the Earth. This is a devastating, forty-one minute avalanche of grindcore-worthy speed and skull-crushing heaviness. And since there are no slow tempo changes/breakdowns, acoustic guitars, keyboards, or melodic guitar lines to be found here, the arrangements never let even a single ray of light shine through. Each of these nine unbelievably dense and tight, Morbid Angel-indebted tracks overflow with massive, scalding riffs, churning, steamrolling leads, murderous, trapkit-annihilating blast beats, guttural bass rumbles, demonic, bellowed vocals, and equally-as-evil lyrics. "CoA" is also of note for its exceptional sound - the production (courtesy of Hate Eternal's Erik Rutan) is very full, clear, and well-defined, but never slick, making it easily one of the best-produced albums in Krisiun's discography.

The ominous, nearly-silent, calm-before-the-huge-storm-esque wind noises that open "Intro/Ravager" give the listener the only chance he or she will get to take a breath for the whole album. But just fifteen seconds later, the onslaught begins - skinsman Max Kolesne's insane blasts are heard cracking away underneath his brother Moyses' heap of ferocious, face-ripping riffs. Other choice standouts include the paint-pealing solos of "Abyssal Gates," the barn-burning, buzzsaw lead, careening solo, and jackhammering drums that back "Cursed Scrolls," the excellent, machine gun-cannon fire riffage, pummeling rhythm, fairly ripping solo, and memorable shout-along part of "kill, kill, kill!" that highlight "Hatred Inherit," and the wicked vocal effects and lengthy, winding, even borderline-melodic solo in album closer, "Endless Madness Descends."

Granted, "Conquerors of Armageddon"is completely devoid of variety, and even its individual songs become fairly repetitive (repeating the same riffs and drum beats over and over again). Thus, there will probably be more than one time that your mind will wonder while listening to this album, and very little of it will stick with you after hearing it. But on the plus side, look at it this way: it is not as technical, epic, or intricate as some death metal albums, so it is much easier to digest and wrap your head around than, say, a Nile record, while at the same time being an equally satisfying listen.

All in all, there's better brutal death metal out there, but this is still an essential listen for all fans of Morbid Angel, Deicide, Belphegor, Vital Remains, and extreme music in general.

This album rules death metal 10 July 2000
By death8699 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the best release from krisiun so far. Produced by Eric Rutan of morbid angel this album has a kick that never seems to end. A constant blast beating, rifftastic guitar parts and brutal vocals. Moyses' solos aren't as crazy as in apocalptic revelation but their still blinding with speed and accuracy. Simply this album is nominee for best death metal album of the year.

Brace yourself 4 Jan 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is difficult to prepare for the onslaught forthcoming when popping in this CD. I first heard a track by Krisiun via Napster and decided that I needed to get this disc, fully unprepared for what awaited my poor ears. There is a great sound to the guitars, the whole buzzsaw effect, and the whole album incorporates the greatest parts of classic death metal. The growls, the nonstop blasting, and great riffing combined with thoughtful solos are what put death metal, and more specifically the newer hybrid that uses elements of grindcore so popular among bands like Nile and Dying Fetus, on the map. Right off my favorite track was the title track for its inventive riff. Some of the tracks can tend to blend together if you're not listening carefully, but some, like Iron Stakes, easily stand out and make it so worthwhile to absorb it all. This album is not one of the greatest ever - that accolade can only be showered on the most deserving few. But it is indeed a fantastic effort that fans of pure death metal madness need to have. I can only imagine what a show with Krisiun and Nile might be like.....competing for the fastest, brutalest performance. The passion for the music shows through prominently. I have not heard their other releases, but I have secured a copy of the Conquering North America live CD the band put out and the first 2 releases are on my list. You will not regret this.

Krisiun don't disappoint with their hard-hitting CM debut. 25 July 2000
By "fingersinthethroat" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Death metal doesn't get much more definitive than this. It's astounding that a band consisting of simply three members can create something so brutal. The riffs manage to keep changing, keeping the interest of the listener, and the pace is always very fast.
...and this brings me to my reasoning for taking a star off. This really depends on the listener, but I found that the drums were too monotonous at times. Most of the songs consist of a rudamentry blast beat, at a relatively quick pace. This is good, don't get me wrong, I love the speed and aggression...I just wish they could have changed it up at least a BIT for a few songs.
All in all, an excellent death metal album, completely worthy of purchasing. My only beef (and a minor one at that) is the lack of creativity in the drum deptartment. Death metal fans shall not be disappointed.
