||Wow, this is much better than their previous
effort! The only thing now is, they've changed their vocal style from
black/death to power metal. Talk about confused! Anyways, giving these
guys some credit would be an under statement. The band’s tightness
& musical flow of their songs are much improved and sound much
more professional now. More solos, catchy & better riffs, and
tremendous Heavy Metal feeling at times. The production of this demo
is nearly top-notch, which for power metal, is very important anyways.
I just wish they would decide what sort of music they wish to play.
They seem to be decent at this style, but a lot of people who listen
to this will most likely be into other power or progressive metal
and will expect something similar the next time. Not say- doom metal
or grunge. Of course, that would be different too (like Ulver- an
ever-evolving metamorphosis). If Guillotine
remains as they currently are with Brian on the mic (Halford with
a Gothenburg sound), this could be a very interesting formula down
the road. Oh yeah, and maybe even more songs. Great improvement!!
