LYZANXIA
LYZANXIA
Unsu
(Listenable Records)
58:00min

Two years after their "Mindcrimes" album was released, French Thrashers LYZANXIA (founded in 1996 out of the residues of an act called OVERLOAD) come up with their next effort "Unsu". Generally speaking one can say that LYZANXIA combine quite melodious Death Metal riffs suggesting old IN FLAMES and SOILWORK influences with aspects from the realm of Thrash Metal. The drummer performs relatively complex patterns, which is cool because this adds an extra twist to the more or less straight guitar work. Talking about which... the guitarists really present a decent job: the solos are subtle and energetic, the Thrash riffs feel fresh and ambitious. The vocalist sort of varies his voice constantly. That is to say, he changes from screaming vocals to growls to melodious tunes. All this principally reminds of acts such as FEAR FACTORY or SOILWORK and adds to the assumption that this band develops further what has come to be known as Metalcore. The slightly MESHUGGAH-like voice (when the Thrash-bits are emphasised), the drums as well as the low guitars may confirm this speculative approach to LYZANXIA's sound. All in all a very solid release Listenable come up with here... I reckon every fan of melodic, Swedish-sounding, modern and varying Metal sound will love this one. Contact: www.lyzanxia.com.
