Dose of Krisiun

What with Guido’s excellent Death Metal onslaught stomping on our eyeballs this week, I think now is as good a time as any to review Krisiun‘s new magnum opus – The Great Execution.

Even though executed superbly, is it possible for a death metal album to have too many slow tracks? Yes it is. Does The Great Execution have too many slow tracks? No. But if the fence were any narrower opinion wouldn’t be able to straddle it.

So is it any good? Yep it’s excellent, in my humble opinion, if you like death metal there is no reason why you won’t like this, although to be fair in a couple of places it’s more metal than death metal — but the Kolesne brothers are playing with such conviction it’s hard not to be swept away.

I dunno if different releases will contain different content but track 11 on my copy is a re-recording of ‘Black Force Domain’ from their first album released back in ’95. Personally I liked the original fine as it was but there’s nothing wrong with this re-recording either.

Excellent going to work sitting on the bus/tube music, and certainly worth 4.5 skulls out of 5.
