DAMNATION - Theater Control Law EP - 2005 reviewed by: 1evil1
1. Theater Control 2. Cause Of Political Disease 3. Eternal Suffering 4. Balance
This 3 man arsenal from Greece have perfectly blended the elements of loud and fast to create this 4 track EP. Angel barks forward with his rough thrashy vocals over top of some great guitar rhythms from Kostas. Enough here to keep your pulse pounding, and probably the want to hear a full length offering. 'Theater Control' seems to be the focal song on here perfectly blending thrash and death elements. Tracks 2 and 3 are solid but lack the hook that is present in 'Theater Control'. Interestingly enough the last track is a slow instrumental showcasing some more of the bands talent and creativity, a nice atmospheric touch. Leaving you with hopes of exploring more venues on the next attempt.
Good start for what seems to be a promising young band. Great production for a demo and nice packaging but lacking in overall quality. Angel needs to change up his vocals to break up the monotone and sameness sound present in the three vocal tracks. Throw in a second guitar player to add some shredding riffs and you would have one smoking pile of metal on your plate.
UPDATE: DAMNATION has changed their name to BIOS. The bands official website is www.biosmetal.com
