The Great Execution ~ Krisiun

After going to several live concerts from the band Krisiun and having bought almost their all discography this album comes as a good refresh at this point in their career. Yes it is true, they can sound very relentless at times with their brutal scale progression, loop riffs and blast beats, however since the last two albums they have moved, in my opinion, to a more death_groove side of their sound (no it does not sound like Entombed).

The album has a cleaner/clearer feeling to it (mix?) with more identifiable vocals and riffs. Ah the riffs....The riffs are just beyond brutality. With a clearer sound one can identify and feast upon the dissonant guitars and their unstoppable change of pace. Songs like 'Supreme Humanism of Megalomania' are another great example of compressed denseness - great lead guitar.

Once again I really enjoyed and appreciated the CD booklet and the nice attention to detail. The side text is humorous and witty without sounding pompous… Read more
