Kombo #24

Serbian band “The Father of Serpents” sounds like “Paradise Lost” on its best days and that is just a top of the hill, trust me. What we can hear on “Age of Damnation” is the perfect blend of the doom and gothic metal, where this sextet brilliantly shows that their other influences (“My Dying Bride”, “Saturnus”) gave them some cool ideas to paint their own canvas. I admit that it’s damn hard not to compare them with previously mentioned bands, but we are not talking about some simple copying or paying a tribute to that sound, no sir. For the first official release, this is a perfectly done job. 9/10.

Kombo #23


Ruski Bелиар sviraju zanimljivu kombinaciju simfoničnog black i death metala. Iako bi trebalo malo više da porade na produkciji, prošlogodišnji album, „Сквозь века“, je itekako interesantan za čuti. Doduše, na ovom izdanju nema ničega vanserijskog, te će biti najinteresantniji fanovima brzog i poletnog blekeraja sa podosta klavijatura u pozadini. Ono što mi se posebno svidelo je to što su tekstovi na ruskom jeziku, što daje solidnu dozu egzotike samoj muzici. Vredi preslušati. 7,5/10.
