Review Summary: More of the same Death metal we all know and like
2 of 5 thought this review was well written
Hailing from the Uk, land of some well known Metal acts such as Anaal Nathrakh, Paradise Lost or even Black Sabbath, has presented us now Trifixion, a Brutal Death Metal band with some grind elements. Trifixion released their debut album 'A Utopia For The Damned', an impressive effort.
The album cover, along with the song titles are certainly amusing, it can bring cannibal Corpse to mind, without all the gore festival going on. Another factor that Trifixion shares with CC is the superb songwritting, all instruments are played to perfection, the synchronization is absolutely flawles.
The songs wont differ much from each other, fast unrelenting riffs to the style of (old) Crypstopsy and Cannibal Corpse, a low gutural growl from lead singer Giuseppe "Gez" Romano will take you for the ride in every song as well. The drumming is Origin like, extremely fast and the bass sort of mixes the sound all together allowing the band to standout as a whole.
The intro song is a perfect opener, like a prelude to the madness that follows, some songs, even at blast beat pace, have small parts where the music slows down, which is used as a buildup because the band will eventually explode again for another brutal assault, sounding faster than ever, like the slow part done on the second track '***ed In Gutteral Vortex' and then exploding into an insane riff but also progressing the sound at a great and brutal pace.
Allthough most of the time you will be hearing blast beats, the band sometimes includes breakdowns, like in 'Delta 9 Messiah', a great addiction since the band doesnt overuse them, so the it'll be less expected and have a better impact on the music itself, rather than replace every single riff like 90% of nowadays deathcore bands.
No complaints on the production values, unless of course, you're searching around for 'raw' sound, the production is crystal clear, you're more than able to hear every instrument to perfection.
That being sayd, the album itself is surely a great listen to any Death Metal fan. However its not anything new or creative, the band contains elements from very well known Death Metal bands (like that ones mentioned above), blending their style to create a more modern sound. For the most part, they succeed.
So even although Trifixion is walking a path that has allready been walked, musically speaking, the potential in this band is insanelly crazy, and, who knows, maybe were looking at the future of death metal right here, that is, however, if this band will end up being able to create a truly, creative and fresh, Brutal Death Metal album.
Intruments are played perfectly
Delta 9 Messiah
Fucked In Gutteral Vortex
Showered In Glass In A World Of Shit
Review neds some work. Writing is too blocky and sections fail to expand on the previous ideas. For example; Hailing from the Uk, land of some well known Metal acts(plural) such as Anaal Nathrakh(one example, where's example two?), has present us now Trifixion, a Brutal death Metal band...
Try re-writing; Hailing from the UK, a country known for another well known metal act Anaal Nathrakh, gives us Trifixion, a brutal death metal band that hints at some grind elements.
You know... that was just one example.... here, let me help:
Trifixion released they'r debut album 'A Utopia For The Damned', an impressive effort.
Try; Trifixion release their debut album ___________, and for the most part it's a highly impressive effort. reminds me* of some C*annibal Corpse, but without the gore....
even at blast beat speed
Um, blast beating is NOT a tempo, it's a technique that (is often used to create a "double time" feel to the music) gives an allusion of faster tempos and (in this genre especially) adds to the overall mood to the music. For example, "That blast beating makes this song sound so brutal". You can see from this that the blast beats give a brutal feel to the music.
Your sentences need some work too, so i'll just give you one example but your whole review needs a look over.
Example: That being sayd, the album itself is surelly a great listen to any Death Metal fan, however its not anything new or creative, the band contains elements from some of the well knows Death Metal bands like that ones mentioned above, creating a mixup of all those bands and trying to create a more modern sound, mostly succeeding.
Re-typed: That being said, the album itself is surely a great listen to any death metal fan. However, it's not anything new or creative. The band uses elements from some other well known death metal acts (liked those mentioned above) and this creates a blend of those bands in the hopes of making a more, modern sound. For the most part, they succeed.
At this point, I must ask: Did you type this up in Word (or something similar)? I don't mean to sound overly mean but I guess this is the internet.
So even tho* Trifixion is walking a path that has allready been walked, musically speaking, the potencial* in this band is insanelly* crazy, and, who knows, maybe were lookin* at the future of death metal right here, that is, however, if this band will end up being able to create a trully*, creative and fresh, Brutal Death Metal album.
"Trifixion released they'r debut album.." - the wrong spelling of the wrong word (you want their)
"The album cover, along with the song titles are certainly amusing, reminds some of cannibal Corpse, without all the
gore festival going on." - The comma usage is also amusing! you would want to do something like: The album
cover, along with the song titles, are certainly amusing.
Your third paragraph is one mammoth sentence with 6 dubiously-placed commas. Even after multiple readings I can't
figure out what that sentence is trying to say.
The long and short of it is that you should look at your comma and period usage. You use a lot more commas and a
lot less periods than is necessary.
aight i made up a few changes, i didnt wanted to copy paste what you sayd but i apreciate the help, i tryed to be more specific with the music itself, normally my reviews are short&simple, guess it didnt work out so well, and yeah i did type it on word before, problem is my windows is all in portuguese and i have no idea how to use the spell checker. for the funny part i have no idea why i keep changing the 'their' to 'theyr', but i REALLY need to work on perfecting my written english, not for reviews here but for other professional work, thank you
