CORPSET
CORPSET
No Rest
(Violent Journey Records)
38:06min

CORPSET is a modern sounding Finnish Death / Thrash Metal outfit that has been creating some noise since 2009, having a debut album of theirs recorded in 2009, called "Ruins". CORPSET (which English translated would be simply 'Corpses') really didn't make THAT big impression on the worldwide Metal media with "Ruins", the album lacking in not-so-memorable songs and stuff related around them. "No Rest" is, however, certainly a step further from the CORPSET bunch to offer something a little bit worth our attention. There's been some serious drive going on inside the band to punch our stomachs harder than ever, when the guys have gathered together to get their weapons loaded with some new tricks and treats in their mind, for this album. Indeed, there's some good grooving, melodic Thrash / Death shit on "Ruins", which partly reminds me of the times when this already worn-out and dead Gothenburg-ish melo Death was a huge thing in the whole world. However, for CORPSET's sheer advantage it needs to be said that their sound is way harsher and heavier than most of these Gothenburg phenomenon acts, plus in addition to that, CORPSET have at least tried to create something that would separate them from the rest of the pack. A song called 'Prophet's Opiate' is a very good example of all that: right from the start it's quite a whirlwind of a harsh sounding Metal song up to 4:20 minutes 'til it's starting to bring out some new colors (like a chameleon defending itself against a lurking danger), so to speak. It's definitely one of the highlight tracks off this album in my humble opinion; experimental yet teeny-weeny psychedelic at times even, which I like. It also lasts over 9 minutes, so one can expect a song like that one to contain lotsa different moods and elements, just to keep it interesting through the whole lifespan of it. Right after 'Prophet's Opiate' the guys' throw 'War Inside' our faces, which is a nearly full-out and viciously rockin' Thrash Metal song, with a fair SLAYER-ish vibe incorporated into it. Good song all in all. Despite as much as I wanted "No Rest" to 'grow in me' into something special, I wasn't not fully impressed by this record but it's still a clear improvement from them song wise compared to their debut, definitely a few steps ahead also regarding CORPSET's determined efforts to try the strength of their wings as that hard-shredding Thrash / Death Metal team.
