5.0 out of 5 stars The future of Death Metal, 2 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Winds of Creation (Audio CD)
The first thing that you need to remember before you listen to this album is that at the time that they recorded it, the band’s average age was 16. That’s right, 16! When you bear that in mind whilst listening to the opening title track (the stand-out song on this album, though in fairness they're all pretty great), your mind just boggles. How can a bunch of kids that young play with such intensity and write songs with such an incredible array of time changes? System Of A Down and Dillinger Escape Plan can eat their dust! Seriously though, if these young Poles keep on developing at the rate they have, they’re going to turn out to be the best Death Metal outfit of all time, and could conceivably rule the scene for the next twenty years. That’s not to say that the album is perfect, though. The vocals are far too low in the mix, to the point at which at times, they are totally indistinct, which is doubly regrettable in this case, because when you can hear them they're very good. Obviously, having growls for vocals is partially the point of Death Metal. However, you should really be able to hear them. However, on their next album, ‘Nihility’, this has been put right. On their forthcoming album The Negation (due out in about a month, as I write this), the balance is even more perfect, with the aggression levels turned up that bit more just for good measure. Another problem is that on this album, guitarist Vogg does have a tendancy to over-elaborate at times, playing solos just for the sake of it. However, this seems to be a problem which he has already managed to iron out of his playing. With another release or two under their belts, this is going to be a fearsome outfit, and they're pretty awesome already. They are the best thing to happen to Death Metal in the last ten years.
