Horricane
The Lynch-Lawyers' Death Squad

Let me say right in this sentsence that these 6 Estonians have made a hell of an impressive demo! And I'm not only talking about sound and production (yes, they're great for a demo), which are things that money can buy, but about a creative intelligence (not available in your local harware shop) that turns these 5 songs into a joyride. You see, "Coup de grace" starts off with heavy slow Morbid Angel style riffing with, somewhere during the song, some weird keyboards peering through in the background to good effect. These keyboards become more audible in "Fraction in your eyes" and then quiet dominant in the more midpaced title track, helping create atmosphere which are more creditable to some Norwegian post-blac metal!. But note that this is not your average emulation of pianos and strings, this is an original and sometimes discordant work which fits the death metal structures pretty well and contributes heavily to the almost cinematic aesthetics of the record. In fact, this almost like watching a movie, with it all coming full circle in the last song "Nitro burst turmoil", evolving with those monstrous slow death riffs into a keydriven climatic ending.
Now, I'm not really moved by the lyrics, but I like the artwork, which makes me think of the 1930's and 1940's noir films - something that quiet fits that cinematic aesthetics of this demo. I heard these guys were signed by Black Mark, so I'm looking forward to hearing their debut!
