3.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected mix of punk, metal, and classic rock!, 20 Aug. 2003
This review is from: Inferno (Audio CD)
Basically, I am fairly new to the extreme metal scene. I have been interested in nu-metal, punk and thrash metal for a while, but recently I have been trying to broaden my musical tastes. A couple of weeks ago I went on a 'shopping spree' for some rather obscure death/black metal gems. I found myself purchasing such classics as Darkthrone's 'Blaze in the Northern Sky' and At the Gates' 'The Red in the Sky is Ours'. I also found myself purchasing this album. It was a choice between this and 'Morning Star'. When I got home I slapped this CD in my stereo, turned up the volume and sat, awaiting the infamous death metal grunts and technical time changes. I was greeted by unaggressive vocals, simplistic power chord riffs, and basic drum beats which I have heard over and over again on Kerrang! To be fair trendies would probably enjoy this a lot, I don't mind the CD, but it is nothing special. Two days after purchasing 'Inferno', I heard 'Chief Rebel Angel' from 'Morning Star' and I couldn't believe how it was so much better than any of the songs on 'Inferno'. It was very thrashy and very good. So newcomers to extreme metal, this is just your average, plain, simplistic mix of punk, metal and classic rock (with no solos).
