Hello everyone!

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

I'm composer and guitarist from Finland. In the overall genre of metal I'm mostly into black metal but of course I've also liked many different subgenres over the years, from thrash to death to melodic death to symphonic stuff etc.. I'm also a huge fan of classical music and some other genres too. Pretty much anything can be good if it's just good, you know? :D I've never been a member of this kind of metal community so here I am now.

I don't know if I have any favorite bands nowadays but one worth mentioning is Burzum and especially Hvis lyset tar oss and Filosofem albums, also all the Burzum ambients! 

You and Balor are going to get on very well ;)

Awesome dude, I am exactly the same, black metal first, but also all other types of metal too, what's your favourite classical piece? Mine is Dvorak symphony no.9 in E minor, I used to work at a cd shop many years ago, when the boss was out I'd play metal, one day I was playing Stormblast by Dimmu, Guds Fortapelse has a sample of it at the beginning, so bossman arrived and I took it off immediately, he didn't approve of playing metal in the shop, first thing he puts on when he gets there was Dvorak 9th Symphony, I nearly spat my tea out cos I thought I'd left the Dimmu album in the cd player!!! The whole symphony is super dramatic though which is why I love it so much...

Haha, nice :D And yes, that Dvorak symphony is really great, I love it too! I also like Beethovens symphonies, especially 3rd and 9th and also his piano sonatas. One of my favorite composers is finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957), his symphonies are great.! He composed 7 symphonies and I really like all of them. There's too much to mention but those are some of my favorites :D

I've only listened to it one or two times so I really can't say any comment about it yet. How about you?

Sibelius huh? I have heard of him, don't know if heard any of his symphonies though, will check them out!

I greatly enjoy Sibelius. For symphonies, my favv is #4. A great shorter piece is Finlandia.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

      3/5
