HARDWARES

HAMMERDRONE

Wraiths On The Horizon

(Independent)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 8.0

Calgary's melodic death bunch HAMMERDRONE impressed us with their A Demon Rising EP from last year, now they're back with a single (literally: one tune) to tease for their upcoming full-length. I love the chops, especially during the Gothen-riffic guitar solo. Make that solos, actually; why stop at one when they're this good? The sense of building drama is all over this thing; their last EP made me think of early '00s Century Media Records bands, but now I'm leaning a bit more towards heavier Metal Blade fare, the death in this coming through louder and clearer than the melodic, which works for me. I'm not sold on that drum sound, coming across a bit too mechanized, especially those bass drums, and the low vocals are five times better than the higher pitched fare. And speaking of building drama, check the last minute of this five-minute gem, where it just builds and builds and goes and goes and ends, like a great track on a compilation, leaving you wanting more. Hard to rate a single song, but the 8 reflects what a whole album of songs of this quality would get.
