THESYRE
Résistance
(Osmose Productions)
34:31min

VOIVOD’s continued presence cannot be overstated, it would appear. THESYRE, a well known band from Quebec, Canada are an extremely eclectic band, playing no readily identifiable style save one derived from VOIVOD. More than VOIVOD is at work here, of course, such as the SODOM vocal patterns, and the vaguely folkish DARKTHRONE riffs and basslines. This is the synthesis of styles which THESYRE present, but the overall effect is diminished with a deliberately airy production. This is one of those instrumentally competent albums tragically unable to bring all of its weight down. Nevertheless, its a great effort on the part of THESYRE. Great Canadian Metal. www.myspace.com/thesyre, www.osmoseproductions.com
