EMPATIC
EMPATIC
Gods Of Thousand Souls
(Terrasound Records)
47:06min

Debut album of this Polish band formed in 2005. It is basically a well-produced melodic Death Metal band, which has a lot to do with bands like DARK TRANQUILLITY a well as the galloping mid-tempo of AMON AMARTH and the aesthetics of ARCH ENEMY. And that pretty much would sum up this band. Even if it is quite enjoyable, I cannot but think this is like a formula already tried that will appeal to those more into the more accessible form of Death Metal, which keeps things playing safe and that is looking to attract fans into the style. Even the cover art looks like the ones used by the aforementioned (well, except AMON AMARTH), a digital created cover art. Again, this is not exactly that bad for those into melodic mid tempo Death Metal, but it turns to all sound the same after a few couple of songs. I find bands like DETONATION (which can also be compared) to be a bit better due to them playing a lot faster. Also, the lyrical aspect is really too soft for this to be really called Death Metal. Although it cannot be said they are a Power Metal band with growling vocals, this is way too pretty sounding for my ears, which makes me run to grab something that will cleanse all those melody with real brutality like ASPHYX or AUTOPSY… www.empatic.com, www.facebook.com/empatic.info, www.terrasound.at
