SKREAMER – KING OF CROWS

Review of the new SKREAMER album, King Of Crows (released 12/09/2016 via Metal Hammer

  1. MY DARKNESS.

It starts off slow with a quiet music background and the vocalist talking. The tempo starts to build then suddenly heavy drum beats and growling vocals kick in. It then goes back to quiet with whispering vocals, which then build up into a fast tempo. I could imagine a good mosh pit with this song. I love the sudden changes in this song, one minute quiet the next fast and loud.

  1. PIG FEED.

This is a lot faster and louder than the first track. With fast guitar playing and crashing fast drum beats.This has deep power chords.The vocals change between shouty and growly. I like this because you can understand what the vocalist is saying.

     3.THE AWAKENING.

Starts off quiet and slow but quickly crescendos to a much louder heavier beat, with fast paced guitars. Great track to headbang to.

  1. VACANCY.

Very slow smooth harmonic track. Was not expecting this type of song. The clean guitars and vocals show that the band have a good variation of musical tastes. Towards the end of the track it spends up and ends in a crashing cymbal.

  1. LET ‘EM BURN.

Starts off slow with growly vocals. Gently speeds up and slows down again. More of a middle paced song than all out thrash.The bass is more prominent on this track then the rest. I like the bass on this track.

  1. WELCOME TO PARADISE.

This is a totally different style of track. The vocalist raps, while the bass sets the tempo. There is a repetitive guitar riff all the way through this track. The drums are slow and quiet.

  1. THIS IS WAR.

Starts off with feedback, then the guitars, bass and drums kick in. The vocalist goes back to growly on this track. Really like the cool bass line and riffs. Not as fast as some of the other tracks, but heavier than most.

  1. KING OF CROWS.

The title track of the album. Starts off with cool bass riffs and some rapping. It soon gets heavy with growls and more rapping. Like the mix of growls and rapping on the song. It has some good clean guitar riffs throughout the track. I could imagine the crowd moshing to this.

 

Overall a good album which I rate 9/10

Fans of Slipknot would enjoy this album
