Rate the song above you!

Recommended Posts

Re: Rate the song above you! Heh. His voice sounds like every band that's ever performed in my hometown. 8/10 because I think the rhythm could have been more interesting. I also don't care for long guitar solos or instrumentals. Given that, this was a good listen and I can definitely see why people say he's so talented. R7WnZGkPuVE Good old Danes. They produced cinnamon rolls, good cookies, Lego and now this. :mrgreen:

Re: Rate the song above you! not really a fan of that type of metal, 4/10 from me and thats pushing it now here's a little bit of Ronnie James Dio for ya. (ps there probably is a way to actually include the clip in here like the above posts but I can't figure it out) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VB5TyfM5O3k

Re: Rate the song above you! Wow. That was really nice. Atmosphere was great, it didn't get old, the vocals were good, drums were interesting and the guitar was moody. I think that will get a 9/10 since I think there were keyboards too. I might just go check out more of their stuff! DCMFO55IBRU A more doomy song from one of my absolute favorite tech death bands. Usually they fire away at a pretty manic pace. :twisted:

Re: Rate the song above you! Funny lyrics, and decent guitar. Drums were boring and the vocals were a bit annoying. 6/10. -PmSquLlOlE One of the few good songs off this album. But what a song it is.

Re: Rate the song above you! Really good up till 2:10 when it went all deathcore. So I think about 8/10 for that. Otherwise, reminded me of Neuraxis and that's never bad! qx2Dd12BNKg

Re: Rate the song above you! Oh goody, another Nocturnal Rites fan. Not bad, although I wish they'd kept the technicality all the way through instead of reverting to melodeath. I like melodeath but I think the song would have been better either with the technicality of the intro, or with the melodeath touch of the rest of the song. The riff at 2:33 sounds a lot like one HB would compose, that was nice to hear. I think 7.5/10 for that, not bad. oXCn5clHa8s Really nice melodic prog with the one and only Markus Sigfridsson on guitars! :mrgreen:

Re: Rate the song above you! RUBBISH that is not melodeath. It is EXCELLENT tech-death though. My one gripe is the vocals...they seem a bit too poppish in the chorus, and occasionally metalcore-ish. So 9/10 again. FfOO2ToKYpY I didn't really want to put the same band on here twice, but this is some of the best tech-death I know.

    • 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
