ΠΑΡΟΥΣΙΑΣΗ: GIANLUCA D’ALESSIO – Oceans Of Time (EP)

 


GIANLUCA D’ALESSIO – Oceans Of Time (EP)


Independent/Burning Shed


Homepage


Εξ αρχής ο τίτλος του δίσκου μου έδωσε την εντύπωση ότι είχα να κάνω με μια μουσική δουλειά που περιστρέφεται γύρω από μια ιστορία και για να είμαι συγκεκριμένος γύρω από μια φιλοσοφική ιδέα. Την ιδέα ότι είμαστε ταξιδιώτες μέσα στο χρόνο και φυσικά το ερώτημα κατά πόσο ελέγχουμε τα πράγματα στη ζωή μας ή η ζωή μας ελέγχεται από ανώτερες δυνάμεις (για τον γράφοντα η αλήθεια είναι κάπου στη μέση). Εν συνεχεία και κατόπιν έρευνας διαπίστωσα ότι ο δίσκος είναι εμπνευσμένος από τον Δράκουλα του Μπράμ Στόκερ και συγκεκριμένα την ακόλουθη ρήση που υπάρχει στο βιβλίο «I have crossed oceans of time to find you». Εν τέλει διαπίστωσα ότι κι αρχική μου εντύπωση δεν ήταν τόσο εσφαλμένη αφού και η ως άνω πρόταση από το γνωστό βιβλίο τρόμου εμπεριέχει σε έντονο βαθμό την υπαρξιακή αγωνία που βιώνει η ανθρωπότητα.

REVIEW: CANNIBAL CORPSE - The Wretched Spawn

What a BLAST of Cannibal Corpse tearing apart your speakers.  I've never before listened to this album nor have I ever owned it then gotten rid of it. It's staying in my collection!  All-Star lineup featuring Jack, Pat, Alex, Corpsegrinder and Paul. This is one their better lineups though Rob and Eric are in the slot of guitar duties. Sounds like they're in B-flat tuning and have that ultra thick sound on the axe's. Corpsegrinder has range on here especially with the screams!  The music went well along with the vocals. Everything seemed to fit into place on this one.  No complaints really just Jack has never really been strong on his lead playing.

Another brutal one!  But this is way tighter and lots of great riffs!  The vocals are about the same as the predecessor.  But it's stronger hence then 90% score.  Even the band was really proud of this release.  The quality of the songs were to a greater caliber than any of their existing LP's.  It'll be great when I actually get this on CD! These guys cover it all with the tempos it's heavy but slower then faster.  They seem to maintain slower riffs/tempos throughout. Sounds like they tune the guitars low. They are totally underground on their compositions. The leads are well done on here too!

Definitely dark and brutal death metal this is my first venturing to immerse myself into Shed The Skin and their vibe.  The music and vocals are very dismal and desolate.  I thought that they deserve a "B" rating since the rhythms and vocals do well on here, reminds me a little of later Deicide recordings.  In that respect, they sound good.  It's one of those albums that you don't want to turn off especially if you're in a chronic death metal type of mood!  It's been going in streaks as to when I'm listening to this whole release,  I'd have to say it's not very fast tempos it's mainly mild tempos and just balls out HEAVY.
