HARDWARES

HAMMERDRONE

A Demon Rising

(Independent)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 8.0

This Calgary band has their melodic death down pat, creating a sound that is heavy on groove and guitar smarts, bringing to mind a lot of bands from about a decade ago on Century Media or something, a real slick sound that doesn't compromise heaviness but still manages to be somewhat accessible and memorable. I love the chanting ending of the opening title track, and the riffing intro to 'Last Stand On Gibraltar' is pure metallic gold. 'Annihilation In Equilibrium' rages with a near-blackened intensity that bands like CARNAL FORGE once had at their prime. I love that this is an EP, too, the intensity of it all compounded by the short running time. While black metal fans or even the true-'til-death death metal legions will find this to be a bit too safe, melodic, or catchy, the band will undeniably find ten fans for every one longhair who dismisses them. Really, the worst thing about the band is the name, which is kinda horrible in that it makes me think of both HAMMERFALL and bad sci-fi movies, a double whammy few metal bands really deserve, especially bands of this level.
