5/5
HAEMORRHAGE
Emetic Cult
1995 / 2004
Morbid Records / CD-Maximum
Death metal/grindcore "Look at me! I'm so disgusting!"
CD-Maximum publishes full discography of one of the most famous grindcore bands! Emetic Cult is a legendary first CD of this pathological crew. Fourteen mad compositions with roar, wheeze, meat, headcrashing sound and perverted vomiting texts - in general, all that you wanna hear. In comparison with most grindcore releases this disc has rather good quality of recording and relatively various sound. Haemorrhage is as various, as death/grind can be. Rhythm, guitar and drums sometimes change their style of playing, main and back vocals also sing differently from time to time. In conclusion, if you like brutal, extreme, insane music, this disc is a good choice. (Nikita Oddfish)

4+/5
MORTIFER
Total Darkness
2004
CD-Maximum
Classic thrash metal "I'm just playing my favourite music"

Unquestioning leader of Russian thrash metal released it's forth album. First impression - "Man, that's fucking great!" Good technique, excellent recording quality, and the band is our native, Russian! Guitars, drums, vocals - everything sounds great. That is really cool because in Russia thrash metal stage is not highly developed and no one of other Russian thrash metal bands can boast of such quality of its release. This is the first impression; this is the front side of a coin. But other side appears, when you listen to this CD for two or three times. Firstly, musical material on this disc has no originality at all (because it is just a good performed classic thrash). Secondly, this music can't be called extreme; it doesn't persuade you to crash and destroy everything. You just have pleasure listening to beautiful professionally performed heavy music. Thirdly, Russian location of the band doesn't matter much because a) it has English speaking texts and b) it plays concerts very rarely. But all of these can be called specific features of the album, rather than its disadvantages. If you are not embarrassed by these features, if you are keen on classic thrash, this album will give you many great minutes of listening. All the more because of four brilliantly performed covers as bonus tracks on this album: covers on Black Sabbath's "Digital Bitch", Deep Purple's "Into the Fire", "Shot Down In Flames" of AC/DC and cover on "Come Together" of The Beatles.

5/5
SEVEN SERAPHIM
Believe In Angels
2003 / 2004
Scarlet Records / CD-Maximum
Brilliant progressive metal "sophisticated music for elite listeners"
Why do I love progressive metal? Because of its variety. Because of its experimental and eclectic character progressive bands differ much from each other. For me Seven Seraphim becomes the main progressive metal discovery of last times. In its music, that is difficult, original, interesting and well thought out, progressive metal combines with neoclassical and power metal elements. The emphasis is made not on the speed of playing, but on work with rhythm. Wonderful keyboard parts and guitar solos make this music be able to please not only male, but also female part of metal audience. A beautiful and strong vocal, sometimes reminding Tony Kakko from Sonata Arctica, is well harmonizing with this sophisticated musical picture. (Nikita Oddfish)
