Apoplexy - Life, Thoughts & Destiny (Independent) - Back
Apoplexy, finally releases their new album called "Life Thought & Destiny." This is the bands first CD since their 1997 release "Infection." The sound of this album is brutal death metal with a touch of black metal. They keep the sound of the old death metal alive with this release. Sounds of old Cannibal Corpse and even a touch of Hypocrisy and At The Gates can been heard in their music. The vocal that Dimitri puts forth are hard to explain. Very guttural at times and sometime a black metal scream can be heard, but they are always very chaotic. My favorite songs on this CD include "Beerfly," "Endanger Your Mind," "That is not Dead...," "The Exemplary Father" the song is amazing and the lyrics are just sick, also "...Of Flesh and Steel." If you are into sick death metal, and very extreme vocals you would definitely be interested in this CD. They have played past shows with some of the best metal bands out there, including Morbid Angel, Vader, Cradle of Filth, Napalm Death and Bad Religion. So obviously they can play with the big bands and maybe if things go their way maybe get their time in the spotlight.
