HARDWARES

CRAVEN IDOL

Towards Eschaton

(Dark Descent)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 7.0

The first minute of the first tune gets you a bit worried that this is going to be something a bit too morose and serious, but then, outta nowhere, there's the DISMEMBER tempo, a quick Tom Warrior deathgrunt, and we're in! This London-based death crew has a nice thrash overtone to their tunes, things not being too bass-drenched and oppressive, the beats lively, the guitar work classy (see opener 'To Summon Mayrion', stop laughing at the album and song titles), even when things get grindy and blasting, it doesn't last, and the near-black-tinged thrash wins out over the death (see 'Sworn Upon The Styx', which reminds me of the insanely underrated SINISTER), bringing to mind hatecrews like NIFELHEIM, while cuts like 'Left To Die' have a nod to the old school trad, proto-blackened-thrash gaggle like SODOM. Solid stuff here, killer for a debut album, and it did not go unnoticed that the last tune also contains deathgrunts, bookending this one with nods to the legends, always a classy move. Nothing much new to see here, sure, but there are many worse ways to spend 33 minutes than banging heads to this fun album.
