Eye For An Eye
Anders Lundemark (KONKHRA) strikes back. For DAEMON he recruited Gene Hoglan (DARK ANGEL, DEATH...) and released quite an intense and aggressive Deathrash album that sometimes reminds me of SEPULTURA. Veryin-your-face, sometimes a little melodic as well (not the kind of melodies we expect from bands like IN FLAMES, though). Hoglan's drumming helps this album a lot to make it sound alive: the first couple of songs seem to threaten you: if you switch off your stereo we're gonna beat you up! So I didn't. Instead, my mind frequently does half way through: somehow the songs don't enter my brain - it's just the same with KONKHRA: nothing too spectacular, instead a little too monotonous for my taste. I can imagine this being fun live because there is a lot of energy involved and maybe I might start liking this record afterwards. Right now I don't.
