KRISIUN Ė SOUTHERN STORM

(Century Media)



Contender for my album of year, Krisiun blasted their way back onto the DM stage with album # 7. Well, thatís not strictly true, as Brazilís deadliest sons are forever touring, and if you wait patiently then theyíll probably be gigging in a local venue near you any day now. Once again using Andy Classen at the helm the Brothers (Grim) Krisiun have taken the same formula that worked so well on 2006ís AssassiNation and ploughed ahead, the only difference being that they didnít disappear up their own asses like so many other technical death metal bands.
Opener Slaying Steel sets the template; Krisiun are fast, bloody fast or insanely fast, capped with top-notch musicianship which has to be heard to believed. Drummer Max Kloesne is incredibly talented, and though highly respected in his own right deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Tony Laureano and Pete Sandoval. His sheer speed alone on Sentenced Morning will leave jaws agape, guaranteed. Elsewhere, tracks such as Whore of the Unlight, Combustion Inferno and Twisting Sights boast a certain 'grooviness' to them, as if Krisiun have learned that they donít necessarily have to go for the jugular all the time. They even cover fellow countrymen Sepulturaís Refuse/Resist at the same tempo instead of bludgeoning it to death (check out their version of Sodomís Nuclear Winter for a prime example in how-to-obliterate-an-original).

Krisiun play death metal, so no apologies needed. You'll either lap this up or you won't. I, on the other hand ... well, how biased can a review be ..?

Bacteria13. Very Happy
