Sure to Excite... Throughout!,
This review is from: Ride The Lightning (Audio CD)
Featuring 8 tracks that display complex and powerful drums and riffs, played with extreme power and alarming efficiency and technicality. Approached and vocalised by deeply insightful doom inspired lyrics, the mood and intensity is of that which parades on high tension, fatal aggravation and existential stress.
The feel of the album is very serious. There is no space for comedy or light heartedness. The style is very certain and the passionate belief projected throughout its sound works to full efficiency!
The track arrangments are incredibly complex and the timing between the musicians is matched by the milisecond!
Although 'For Whom the Bell Tolls' is certain to generate appreciation, the stand out track on this album, 'Fade To Black', features a comtemplative intro, after which a perfectly played and recorded acoustic section that hits the heights of all possible comprehension. When the vocals kick in accompanied by the superb druming, proceeded with a graciously dealt riff it makes for a euphoric moment!
Every track projects quality, and the final instrumental track, although lacking in Vocals, is no exception.
