Czech black metal legends Master’s Hammer released a new track on Youtube recently.
“Ve věži ticha” (translated as In The Tower Of Silence by the band) is a repetitive boring affair with breakdown choruses in Czech and generic riffs. This is metalcore for a lowest common denominator festival audience. The structure of the track is verse chorus verse and yes the choruses are breakdowns just like metalcore. This is a phone in affair for funderground fans to mosh to and for Master’s Hammer to sell reissues of their demos, Ritual, and The Jilemnice Occultist to later just like all such phoned-in, rehashed and dumbed down into rock music efforts.
The only aspects of this Hessians will be interested in is the leads and some of the keyboard work, which Master’s Hammer pioneered in black metal. Other keyboard work is awfully off key and quite cringey. Master’s Hammer could salvage certain elements of this phoned-in effort, id est the leads and keyboards, into an adequate speed or black metal track if they would bother to take the time and effort to so so. However, Master’s Hammer have not for the time so “Ve věži ticha” is just a Youtube curiosity to listen to once and mock. Hessians would do best to keep listening to Master’s Hammer’s demos and Ritual rather than waste their precious time with this.
