REVIEW: God Shaped Devil – Creator of Sodom (ep)

 

GOD SHAPED DEVIL – CREATOR OF SODOM EP.

godshapeddevilcover

Track 1: Lobotomy

The EP starts off with an instrumental track, which features a cool repeated riff.

 

Track 2: Continuum

The intro leads into shouty vocals. A good mixture of clean and shouty vocals. It has cool guitar riffs and pounding drums throughout the track. A great song to headbang to.

 

Track 3: Creator of Sodom

The title track of the EP. Again heavy guitars and pounding drums. A very catchy chorus. It’s quite easy to imagine the crowd singing along because of the simple catchy words.

 

Track 4: Rage inside

A track similar to the previous tracks, but with more clean vocals. I like the guitar solo in this one. A very bouncy track that will get you moving.

 

Track 5: Pray for Death

Great drum beat that gets you nodding along. Some nice changes of feel, from clean to growl then back to clean. Another really good guitar solo in this song. Nice gentle outro.

HAMEREX -TRAITOR

 HAMEREX – TRAITOR

RELEASE DATE: 7TH OCTOBER, 2016

LABEL: IX MUSIC

Track 1 – Traitor

The title track of the album starts with a bass introduction. Before it breaks into melodic vocals, which is high pitched in places. It’s quite a long song at just over 6 minutes, and is mid paced with a heavy sound.

Track 2 – The Dark Tower

It starts with a guitar intro which sounds mysterious, before the drums kick in bringing the pace up slightly. A dark sounding track, like the title suggests. It has a great solo guitar riff in the middle of the track and has plenty of chugging riffs all the way through the track. A good track for headbanging.. 

Track 3 – Dead Mountain

Starts off with the drums beating in the intro. A medium paced Heavy Metal track. There are hints of classic N.W.O.B.H.M bands in this track.

Track 4 – The Nameless One

I thought this was going to be a ballad, because of the intro. It is very deep and dark at times, with very strong vocals.There is a burst of energy before going back to the slow pace, which changes often throughout. I like the variety of tempo in this track.

Track 5 – Eyes Of Deceit

There is more energy in this song than in previous tracks. Again, it has a longish intro, but still sounds dark. The drums give a steady beat during the track.

Track 6 – The Abyss

The instrumental and shortest track of the album. It has a nice mellow intro, with the drums slowly building up. There are some nice clean riffs repeated throughout. There is a nice change of feel towards the middle of the track, and it ends with some nice, fast drums.

Track 7 – The Evil Within

This is by far the longest track of the album, coming in at just over 9 minutes. There is a thrashy intro. It’s a quite heavy sounding song with some nice riffs and drum beats. About a third into the track there is a change of tempo, to a more slower and relaxed feel. There are some cool guitar effects and some good riffs repeated throughout the song.

Track 8 – Journeys End

A heavy Black Sabbath style intro, leads into a chugging guitar riff. Another N.W.O.B.H.M style song with Sabbath undertones. Which is no bad thing. I really like the punchy guitar solo and the feedback outro.

Overall I enjoyed the album and will be checking out the other Hamerex releases. I like the classic feel of some of the songs.

I rate the album 8/10

Into The Fire

itf-cover-art-3k-x-3k
Following the release of their self titled debut ep, Into The Fire has unleashed their first visual assault, the new music video ‘Spit You Out’. Described as modern, stripped back, hard rock, Spit You Out’s video is the perfect accompaniment to the huge sonics on offer here.
Into The Fire is:
Bryan Scott (The Union Underground): Vocals/Guitar
Tim King (SOiL): Bass
Adam Zadel (SOiL): Guitar
Will Hunt (Evanescence): Drums
American hard rock band Into The Fire was conceived in 2013 by vocalist Bryan Scott (The Union Underground, Cult To Follow), bassist Tim King (SOiL) and guitarist Adam Zadel (SOiL). Long time friend Will Hunt (Evanescence) was brought in on drums soon after.
“I was sitting around with Adam one day talking about who would be great to jam with”, states bassist Tim King. “I shot Bryan Scott a text message and Into The Fire was born a day later.”
The group grabbed onto this opportunity and started putting material together. According to Bryan Scott “As soon as Tim sent me the material I immediately had ideas and started putting vocals down. The music had the perfect vibe for what I wanted to do.”
The first 2 released tracks ‘Spit You Out’ and ‘From The Medicine’ were engineered, produced and mixed by Bryan W.Scott and mastered by James Murphy. The result can be best described as a raw and stripped down rock sound with modern elements.
