Calm Before the Storm Reviews

Reviewer :  level   (75/100)
Date : 
Guitarist였던 'Mantas'가 나가고 소속사를 옮기며 새로운 Guitarist 2명을 영입하며 전작들과는 다른 변화를 준 앨범이다. 전작의 사운드를 보유한 채 시도되는 제대로된 Thrash Metal 사운드를 갖춘 곡들과 Punk 냄새가 풀풀 나는 곡들등 앨범안에 여러 사운드가 시도되는 욕심이 많이 드러나 있는 것 같다. 뚜렷한 목적지 없이 취향 따라 곡이 만들어진 듯 통일성이 좀 부족한데 그래도 구성다운 구성의 곡들이라도 있어서 들어줄만 하다.

Best Track : Black Xmas, The Chanting of the Priests, Metal Punk

내건 자켓이 전혀 틀린데... 여하간 이 앨범에서 찾을 수 있는건 "베놈이네" 라는 것. 마이클 힉키가 참여했고..여하간 평도 판매도 참패했지만 그래도 들을만은 하다고 생각한다. 그래서 꾸준히 듣고 있느냐고 물으면 그건 아니지만..

trošku lepšie ako predošlé, ale stále nič moc

만타스의 공백이 이렇게 클줄이야 베놈스러운 맛은 없지만 노래는 좋은 편
