5.0 out of 5 stars 'Berzerker' just about sums it up..., 15 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Rareform (Reissue) (Audio CD)
This is one of the heaviest yet melodic albums I have ever heard. After getting back from uni one day, my housemate was playing this album and I was instantly hooked. There is some serious musicianship on this album and it has to be heard to be believed. There are constant tempo changes, polyrhythmic drumming and endless riffs, which sometimes weave in and out of each other. After hearing the downtuned riffery of 'A Vicious Reforming Of Features', the band could be likened to Swedish tech metal band Meshuggah, and there are a few similarities that can be made. Number One: downtuned, 8-string Ibanez guitars. Number Two: endless time signature changes and polyrhythms. And Number Three: just sheer brutality. All the songs on this album are excellent (there are only 8 tracks and the album clocks in at just over 30 minutes). If you like the brutality of Meshuggah mixed with the melody of bands such as All That Remains (within the guitars, not the singing, as there is none, only screaming) then I would highly recommend this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars riffology, 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rareform (Reissue) (Audio CD)
very similar to "the contortionist" but with a little bit more meat on the bone. im always looking out for bands that push the boundaries of quality. these guys seem to tick the boxes.
