But all in all, the music features low-tuned guitars to achieve total death metal fury. It's on all tracks, just pure destruction in a musical sense, that is to the eardrums. They really put together some awesome bar chord thickness with a massive amount of tremolo-picked, furious riffs. There are a lot of tempo changes throughout the whole album, not totally drastic as in a progressive sense, but really a lot of variety in the musical department. All of the songs are a pure massacre of pure sickness and is an album that takes time getting used to I'd say if you're a fan of the now-defunct, furious, death bad asses.
There is absolutely no variety in the vocals, which isn't surprising; they're just a hoarse throat that usually is played alongside the fast and furious guitars. I'd say the whole of the album does feature the Swedish melodic sides to it, but for the most part there is utter originality to the music and scorching riffs.
A definite end of a legacy for the band and it's sad to see them depart from the death metal world. But they left behind a true spirit of ever-flowing death metal. I think that the highlight of the album isn't just the music, but also the intensity that it was played at and by a band that never really abandoned its roots.
"Europa Burns" is definitely a great track to listen to via YouTube, but really, the concept of the album was straightforward death metal with a fluent taste of fury regarding death and utter hatred for mankind, bluntly put. I think that it takes time getting into, but when you hit repeat, it'll make sense in a fashion that is bloody downright gory and strongly fixated on just purely noble justice in a death metal album. The riffs are what are the catchiest on the album and I'd say that they are like no other. This band has pretty much always been a great impact on the death metal world of pure and sinister evil.
Try out maybe a couple of songs on YouTube; they are all filled with fury. I felt that total and utter demolition of fury the whole way through and not just the opening track, but on every track. But if you're an avid death metal listener that has tracked down this band over the years, you'll find that it's total and utter intensity. A great thing has happened here and I think that from a musical standpoint it gets out that pure aggression, then reverts a little to the past in terms of featuring some melodic riffing like I stated previously. Worth checking out? Absolutely. You'll really feel that uncompromising morbidity and gruesomely-filled rampant death metal all the way.
