  • Title: Imhotep - Videos/Interviews - Frail Grounds - "The Fields Of Trauma"
    Descriptive info: Triptych Recordings (2012).. Norwegian progressive metal is on the radar map for most into this genre- especially with the current recordings from acts like Pagan’s Mind and Circus Maximus, as well as the historical technical masterpiece from Spiral Architect.. The six piece Frail Grounds has also been lurking in the mix, although more on an independent scale.. Forming in 2005 and releasing their previously reviewed “Corrosion” EP in 2008, I did wonder where the band would go from here… and after a long songwriting and recording process we have the fruits of their labor in this 11 track, 55 minute debut album.. “The Fields Of Trauma” is a concept album detailing a Siberian expedition and the extreme conditions people can endure to have desired resolutions with their life.. As such, it makes sense that Frail Grounds expands their musical and vocal output to match the proceedings- so do not be shocked by their occasional use of harsh vocals or death/ black metal riffs and rhythms when they need to match the storyline.. Main singer Morten Søbyskogen lives for emotional expressiveness, up to  ...   reflective keyboard part in “Origin” from Sigbjørn Galaen before the Erik Fidgett/VegardAmundsen riff and soloing expertise kicks into high gear, or the twin harmonics that wield into the epic arrangement whirlwind of bassist Thomas Oppedal and drummer Magnus Nødset on the Communic-like “Emberstorm”, the songs have tension, passion and a slight unexpected nature which is what we need more of from progressive metal.. This is a record where I didn’t even mind the small intros, outros or short songs like “Triptych” that advance the storyline at their own pace.. It’s difficult to come up with a complete comparison for “The Fields Of Trauma”- you’ll hear elements of Symphony X, Pagan’s Mind, Nevermore, Communic and even thrash and death acts.. Ultimately, Frail Grounds should gain serious attention for this work- it’s engaging, invigorating, and an exciting listen every time my ears take this in.. frailgrounds.. Rating: 5.. 5 / 6.. Composed by Matt Coe.. Roy Kristensen 05.. 07.. 2012 14:47.. RE:Frail Grounds -.. Great album, yes.. I guess we have to go for the good ol' interview thing there.. Roy Kristensen 15.. 2012 15:46..

  • Title: Imhotep - Videos/Interviews - Testament - "Dark Roots Of Earth"
    Descriptive info: Nuclear Blast (2012).. Prolific early in their career due to major label demands (i.. e.. when we have a successful formula, pump it out to the masses as quickly and often as possible), Testament have slowed down in terms of studio releases since the early 1990’s.. You would figure in 25 year recording career the band would already have hit double digit studio albums- but since “The Gathering” in 1999, Testament have only released one subsequent studio album in 2008 “The Formation Of Damnation” prior to this new recording.. It’s not like they’ve been idle- touring the globe on their own headlining excursions, opening for killer package deals like “Metal Masters” with Judas Priest, Motorhead, and Heaven Hell as well as hitting festivals in India, Venezuela, and Columbia among other territories.. Given their propensity to change the formula through the years- “The Ritual” being their most straightforward, commercial offering, while “Demonic” probably their heaviest knocking on death metal doorsteps- where would Testament 2012 belong in their legendary thrash career with “Dark Roots Of Earth”? Do not fear legions- Testament know what their fans want and deliver in spades through these 9 songs.. “Rise Up” and “True American Hate” explode  ...   Finally Chuck Billy has one of those instantly memorable vocal presences in the metal business- evil one moment, melodic the next, he has proven over his career that his ability to channel anger, aggression, and restraint gives Testament opportunities 95% of the thrash world can’t possibly match.. “Cold Embrace” opens its 7:46 arrangement with this acoustic/electric guitar panoramic motif, once again taking a ballad format but twisting things up enough in terms of where the solo spots appear and how to surprise the listener with the crushing, heavy chorus action- something I haven’t heard since Mike Howe-era Metal Church days.. The other epic “Throne Of Thorns” evokes a slightly Middle Eastern meets “Seventh Son.. ” Maiden-era atmosphere, especially during the bridge transition, dual guitar harmonies and spirited solo section.. Produced once again by Andy Sneap, Testament understand the need to really push their riffing, songwriting and performance skills to unleash an album that will have longevity beyond the initial five to ten exposures.. Much like Anthrax’s “Worship Music”, “Dark Roots Of Earth” proves that thrash isn’t merely a young man’s game.. Well worth the wait, Testament provide Bay Area magic once again.. testamentlegions..

  • Title: Imhotep - Videos/Interviews - Kråke - "Conquering Death"
    Descriptive info: Indie Recordings (2012).. There must be something special in the tap water up in the wastelands near Haugesund, to be more specific, Karmøy, land of Vikings and warriors.. Enslaved, Einherjer and Evig Natt are only a few of all the great bands with roots in this area, and now there is a new contender to the throne, all raise for the mighty Kråke.. Although I have known the band for a while now, and even almost seen them live twice (long story), nothing prepared me for this epic and truly great symphonic black metal album.. The song "I Ly Av Lyset" has been a YouTube favourite for a long time, a perfect soundtrack to the battle scenes in Lord Of The Rings.. The good news is that the rest of the album has the same high standard, if not higher.. Everything, every little detail, from the vocals to the drums, from the instrumental parts to the way the songs are arranged, it all just fits together like Thor and his hammer.. "Conquering Death" floats along and takes you on a incredible journey beneath black waters where you can avoid all light.. Three words comes to mind; epic, dark and powerful.. Leading to the  ...   guarantee that this album will be found on several top rankings when 2012 comes to an end (I know, we have all seen the movie 2012, we are all doomed, but let's just pretend it's not going to happen).. Did I mention the fact that I absolutely love Kråke and "Conquering Death"? If there is such a thing as buy or die this summer, this is it, my friends.. facebook.. com/Kraakeofficial.. indierecordings.. net.. Composed by Leif Neverdahl.. Roy Kristensen 20.. RE:Kråke -.. Fantastic album indeed.. Been a long time since I heard sympho bm done right!.. Dethster4life 07.. 2012 13:42.. Well, I guess I should take another listen, even though I'm not really tempted despite Leif's words.. http://www.. imhotep.. no/?did=9106278 - yes, I got a bit bored there.. Strange, since this kind of music is normally amongst my favourites.. Limbonic Art, Tartaror, Emperor, Dimmu Borgir.. Hmm, perhaps Deathspell Omega has taken over parts of my brain.. Roy Kristensen 07.. 2012 22:47.. Agree! Killer album, great debut, looking forward to hear what more these guys can come up with.. Leif N 07.. 2012 22:51.. There are worse things that can take over parts of your brain than Deathspell Omega :).. Leif N 08.. 2012 16:11..

  • Title: Imhotep - Videos/Interviews - Asia - "XXX"
    Descriptive info: Frontiers Records (2012).. In 1982, America felt the impact of this melodic rock/AOR supergroup.. You couldn’t escape a television set or radio station that wasn’t playing “Heat Of The Moment” or “Only Time Will Tell” from Asia.. Internal struggles with style and songwriting duties fractured the band within 2 years- but they have been going steady once again since reuniting in 2006, with two more studio albums and numerous worldwide tours re-igniting their sound to a new generation of fans.. 30 years as a recording entity, the original four of AOR group Asia see no need to slow down their studio and touring momentum, as “XXX” reinforces the fine musicianship and personal interplay between the members.. Bassist John Wetton may not necessarily be hitting his early 80’s highs on their self-titled debut, but his mid-range comforting voice still comes through on “No Religion” and “Judas”, two early  ...   Drummer Carl Palmer may not necessarily dazzle with his propulsive rolls and fills of yesteryear, but the material calls for a rock solid foundation and he delivers on “Bury Me In Willow” and the slightly funky/ Genesis-like “Face On The Bridge”.. The soothing harmonies for choruses within “Tomorrow The World” and “Faithful” remind me of why Asia still remains relevant in 2012- the knowledge and capacity to match up the right melody with the right chord sequences, and knowing when to elongate certain instrumental sections or when to just stick to the heart of the song.. The band sticks to the core sound within current production parameters- and that’s fine by me, because this material will translate easily from record to stage.. Another AOR highlight for me - “XXX” isn’t scandalous - it’s as comfortable as a warm summer breeze.. originalasia.. frontiers.. it.. Roy Kristensen 24.. 2012 10:56..

  • Title: Imhotep - Videos/Interviews - Gojira - "L'Enfant Sauvage"
    Descriptive info: Roadrunner Records (2012).. With the "Wild Child", a fifth overall, but a third widely known album, Gojira goes back to the complexity of the classic "From Mars To Sirius".. While the new album is brimming with fresh riffs and melodies and the songs are actually not quite as instantly catchy as on that album, or even subsequent "The Way Of All Flesh", "L'Enfant" is a missing link between the two predecessors.. However, references to Morbid Angel or Mastodon no longer make any sense, I hear more Tool (title track) and Meshuggah (the opener, "Liquid Fire", "Pain Is A Master"), this is a different band, after all.. It's been 7 years since ".. Sirius.. ", a stellar masterpiece that impressed Randy Blythe (Lamb of God) so much he took them on tour as support AND guest sang on their next album.. It is also to that recommendation that I owe my running into this album in the middle of 2005, one of the best years of my life.. Even though I thought ".. Flesh" was a great album as well it didn't quite hit me with the same power as the predecessor.. This one does.. What's more, if you loved the keyboard/electronic experiments introduced on "The Way.. " but were not too crazy about some of the metalcore sounding moments, while loving ".. " for outstanding songwriting, you will love this new album.. It has the edge and the climate of ".. Mars.. " and  ...   Gift of Guilt" where the melody competes with the Pantera-ish yet death metal riffing with changes, twists and turns that put progressive back in Gojira's death metal.. And really, who cares what genre these guys are? All I know is that they write superb metal with high replay value and surprises at every corner.. Why not 5.. 5 or 6? Well, overall, much like "The Way Of All Flesh" it does not have the same merciless crushing tonnage that made Meshuggah sound like "Load" (Metallica, 1996) in comparison.. It retains all the best elements of "From Mars To Sirius" but with heaviness turned down a quarter of the dial, presumably in the name of progression ? Nevertheless, album is still plenty heavy, it's an incredible grower, and best of all, your father would still disown you if you played it at a family picknic, a requirement of any release with death metal connotations.. And in the unlikely event that they happen to like it just play "Rapture" ("Covenant", Morbid Angel, 1993) if you don't ever want to hear from them again.. Hell, they might even report you to Gestapo.. I mean Homeland Security for that one, since David Vincent's vocals are intelligible enough to hear the lyrics!.. As for Gojira, these incredibly talented Frenchmen progress fantastically and "L'Enfant Sauvage" is yet another top shelf release to be added to their already stellar catalogue.. gojira-music.. roadrunnerrecords.. Rating: 5 / 6.. Composed by Dethster4life.. 2012 22:39..

  • Title: Imhotep - Videos/Interviews - Ne Obliviscaris - "Portal Of I"
    Descriptive info: Code 666 (2012).. Forming in 2003, the six piece extreme metal band from Australia Ne Obliviscaris (pronounced Nay Ob-li-vis-kar-is for those wondering…) appear to be one of those groups that few will understand, and yet those who do will fervently follow every musical move these musicians make.. To describe their style accurately appears impossible- melodic and tender with clean vocals one moment, blasting death the next- with nuances of thrash, black, avant-garde, jazz, and flamenco parts.. A full time violin player goes toe to toe in neo-classical meets Robbie Steinhardt (Kansas) form- many times taking the instrumental lead against the sonic assault steamrolling from the intense strumming, dissonance in chord sequences and hyper kinetic percussion salvos.. Most of the 6 songs on “Portal Of I” are over the 10 minute mark- so this is not the music for you if your preference lies in repetitive three chord structures and simplistic, catchy choruses.. Ne Obliviscaris doesn’t beat your brain in with super complex technicality- they instead set diverse mood landscapes, allowing the listener to escape or  ...   quick to place Opeth in the list of reference points.. Ne Obliviscaris do not clone Opeth- they take some of the 70’s reference points into an epic, outer world experience for your ears, but I think the flamenco and jazz edge on a song like “And Plague Flowers The Kaleidoscope” combined with the turn on a dime black metal riffs to progressive soloing for “Of The Leper Butterflies” makes every return engagement exhilarating, spine tingling- and beyond entertainment.. There’s a reason why Australia is gaining significant attention for its domestic output.. The government grant money aids the final product, as brilliant songwriting and performances deserve an equally potent production, mixing and mastering job.. Watching video of some of these songs in a live environment, this six-piece will not remain remote or obscure for long.. Passionate, engaging, uplifting, risk-taking, and an album that should gain plenty of year end (and decade end) accolades- “Portal Of I” will not be the last we hear from this upper tier extreme metal act.. neobliviscaris.. code666.. Roy Kristensen 11.. 2012 11:55..
