Modern straight-laced aggro metal from Albania
Comments:
This Albanian band formed in 1996 and released their debut a year later. It's been a really long wait for the sophomore release. The band's second album was released in January of 2017 marking a twenty-year wait for new material. I wish I had heard this album years ago because it has a slightly dated feel to it now. It's groovy with bulldozer riffs, a mid-tempo pace and vocals that mix up some cleaner vocals with a rough delivery. It isn't metalcore by any means, but somewhere in Brazil crushing the empire with the likes of Sepultura.
Recommended for fans of:
Machine Head, Ektomorf and Suspiria
