[Head Not Found]
Hemlock.. one of many bands to come after the fall of
Brutal Truth.. but this one is a black metal band..
and a fucking killer one at that!! This is very
original stuff here.. very chaotic, but at the same
time controlled.. hard to explain.. The best way to
label this music would be black/grind, but it isn't
done in the Beherit/Blasphemy/Bestial Warlust/etc.
sort of way.. its done a lot different... This cd is
going to be hard to review because it is very unlike
anything I've heard before... The guitars are played
at many different paces, rarely going into anything
generic black metal.. very little melodies are used
here, its an up front, in your face attack.. The bass
is played in the background, but gives a good rumbling
atmosphere adding to the chaoticness of the music..
the drumming (a drum machine I believe) fits the music
extremely well, in the sense that it is very chaotic
and all over the place, yet stays on beat and is
controlled.. The music on this disc is very strange..
it has the ultra-break neck speeds that completely
crush everything in its path, to the slower mid-paced
sections full of heavyness and anger, to the
slow-paced agony filled torment... and it all works
extremely well!!! The vocals on this disc are VERY
original.. unlike anything I've heard before.. They
are screamed at the top of the lungs and high pitched,
but not in the way black metal bands do it... much
more full of conviction and hate.. and very, very
strange... well.. little can be described about this
cd cause its so fucking original and so fucking good..
so just go buy this now!
Appeal: Beherit fans who would like to hear a more
chaotic yet controlled and more talented band in the
