SCENTERIA
SCENTERIA
Art Of Aggression
(New Aeon Media)
38:28min

The guys in the Swedish four piece SCENTERIA still look pretty young on the pictures that accompany their debut full length "Art Of Aggression" and therefore I didn't really expect to like this record - as stupid as this may sound. It's just that the majority of younger musicians that are around these days have a totally different musical background (there's exceptions to the rule of course)... They grow up on different bands than old farts like myself which (of course) is also reflected in the music they play. Don't get me wrong here - it's not that I consider SCENTERIA bad... not at all! Judging them by the ten tracks I've heard they even seem to be pretty skilled musicians (apart from the fact that they are still heavily lacking in an own identity). The entire material on "Art Of Aggression" is very energetic and full of aggression, but as I have never really been a fan of all the modern Thrash bands that (mostly) Scandinavia gave birth to over the last couple of years SCENTERIA certainly won't manage to change my narrowmined point of view either. Their label promotes them with the slogan "...a must for fans of bands like THE HAUNTED, CHILDREN OF BODOM and TERROR 2000, cause SCENTERIA is in league with all those bands!" Well, CHILDREN OF BODOM are not exactly a good comparison here (they are far more melodic and rooted in traditional Heavy Metal), but if you're into the aggressive modern thrashin' Death style of THE HAUNTED / TERROR 2000 and the likes, won't mind a couple of recycled SLAYER riffs here and there and still enjoy a wellknown (quite overused) writing formular - you might get a kick out of this as well.
