Now Playing: Deafening's Playlist
Greetings metal heads, here is my first Now Playing column. This should give an outline on what I am either praising or bitching about …
Whilst waiting for the new In Flames album to show itself I have been occupying myself with Arch Enemy’s “Doomsday Machine” album, as well as Nevermore’s “This Godless Endeavor” and I have managed to give Fear Factory’s “Transgression” a listen to as well.
Being an Arch Enemy fan right from the “Black Earth” album I have become very demanding when it comes to expectations from the band and I am happy to say that I was not disappointed from this latest work.
Personally, I find it is the kind of album that you could play from start to finish without having to skip a single track. There are not a lot of albums out there that I can say the same for.
A while back when I had first heard “Enemies of Reality” by Nevermore I was not an instant fan but I felt the band was definitely worth investigating further. I listened to a couple of more songs and although not becoming a die hard fan I definitely had them in a playlist or two. However after listening to their latest work “This Godless Endeavor” I can say I have gone from the kind of fan that just listens and nods to going out and raving about the band. It’s truly an exceptional piece of work that any metal head should make an effort in listening to. I look forward to some more work from these guys.
Being quite a big Fear Factory fan I am sad to report that “Transgression” is far from being a hallmark Fear Factory album. I found that a lot of the elements that were unique to Fear Factory’s sound were scrapped and it seems to me that the band is perhaps trying to create some new kind of sound. Although I would not say it is a terrible album I will say that even the most hardcore Fear Factory fan should give it a listen to before parting with their hard earned cash. I found about three tracks from the album that I enjoy listening to.
That's it for now.
