Friends, Metalheads, Headbangers! Lend me your ears! Today I have something interesting, hailing out of Stockholm Sweeden! We have Septekh with their first full length album under Abyss Records. Coming in at 13 tracks and 60 mins long this album has a lot of different riffs and sounds that are fronted by the same growly metal vocals.
What do I mean by that? Well if you listen to different songs you will see that they do pretty much a lot of there are so many different styles of riffs and rhythms they put into their songs that you can hear sounds of Motorhead, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, and many more, speed up some of the songs and the vocals and you have something original that you don’t normally hear in death metal. Speaking of the vocals they, are still the same sound for all of them for this making it a very heavy album all around even with the different styles of music rolled into one. The names of the songs are interesting where you have something very standard like the title track “Plan for World Domination”, which also is the longest track on the album at 11:00, to odd names like “Fuck Dollar” and “Don Asshole” which still don’t take away from the songs themselves.
There are some songs that don’t have the lyrics go with the way the song is going, however, in the case of “Left handed Man” you will hear that vocals have taken a back seat while screaming the hatred during a very G n’ R sounding Solo, to end the song. It really is quite fitting for the song.
Over all this is a very decent album that has a lot going on in the 13 songs it has. Even the shortest song is just over two mins but it has a lot of content that it feels like it is longer.
This is a very decent and good album to listen to. It does take a couple of go throughs to get the full feel of it but once you do, you will find that it flows really well for the full 60 mins and gives a lot in the way of many styles that a lot of us grew to love in metal.
I give this album a 7/10 as it still would need a couple of tweaks to get it really sounding great, but it has a lot to offer.
Have a listen to “Burn it to the Ground here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=F1HtePos2N4
For now I’m PK saying ROCK ON and we will see you next time.
