4.0 out of 5 stars Sepul who? This is KRISIUN !!!, 3 May 2006
This review is from: Assassination (Audio CD)
This is the second Krisiun cd I have bought, and just like "Bloodshed" it doen't disapoint.

I said goodbye to the Seps after Arise. Sarcofago didn't really go anywhere... and then there was Krisiun. What a turn up for the books !!!

The first noticable difference between the two albums is that the drums have deffered to the lead guitar work in a big way. Bloodshed was all about the drums pounding you into submission, with the guitar riffs meating out the songs. On AssassiNation, the rythm and lead work really shines through. There are some stunning solos on the tracks within this album.

Saying that, the drums are the back bone of Krisiun's sound. Max Kolesne's feet never ever stop pushing those pedals. The drumming is very military like, with blast beats that sound like military marches. Add to this the snare being lashed at lightspeed, and some excellent fills and you've got some pretty interesting percussion.

Alex Camargo's vocals are superb. There are 3 video clips of the band live on this cd, and he just seems to be able to growl into the mic, with no real effort, making really deep sounds, plus playing his bass at the same time.

The only downside to Krisiun (if you are being really really picky) is that their sound, from track to track is a bit "samey". I like it, so I'm ok, but you might disagree?

Its as death metal as death metal gets. Straight down the line, growling, no messing riffage, blistering solos, the infamous Krisiun drum treatment and mainly all played very very fast indeed.

Highlight tracks are 'Vicious Wrath' with its brutal chorus, 'Refusal' for its all out blasting and quite tribal drum parts and of course 'Sweet Revenge' a strange choice of Motorhead cover, but a good one none the less.Anything off of 'Bomber' would be perfect for a death metal cover, seeing as how angry Lemmy was at the time.

There are 2 short intsrumentals on here too. 'Summon' being worthy of a mention as its 49 seconds of tribal congas !!

In conclusion, a massive album, brutal, driving, certainly 'Death Metal', only hindered by a slight repetition from track to track. Still a must have for all brutal death loving fans, from lovers of Cannibal Corpse's brutal midpaced nastiness, to Decapitated's polished ultra fast sharpness, everywhere.
