HARDWARES

THE VEIN

Scouring The Wreckage Of Time

(Shadow Kingdom)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 8.5

This is decidedly heavy fare for the trad-tinged Shadow Kingdom Records, second tune 'Seeds Of Blasphemy' laying down the law like IMMOLATION, the sludgey death metal being delivered with a grandiose doom metal air, the whole thing wrapped up in a bit of a nostalgic early '90s death/'80s doom package. It works excellently, the tunes long and plodding but not without a bit of dynamics to help walk the listener through the tough slog inherent in music of such a difficult nature. I like it when this Denmark-based band (featuring dudes from ALTAR OF OBVLIVION and CEREKLOTH) starts getting really ugly like AUTOPSY without the grinding, the vibe of INCANTATION's slower sludge coming through, but, again, the overarching feeling somehow approaching classic CANDLEMASS or TROUBLE in vibe (the closing riff in 'The Great Deception' brings back the magic and the glory of '80s trad in a big way). Those death metal vocals are going to scare off any traditionalists who happen across this one, though. But, works for me, and combined with the great riffing and overall relentless plodding of the tunes, it makes me think I'm going to be revisiting this one more than a few times in the future.
