|Knights Of The Abyss - Juggernaut (Candlelight
Knights Of The Abyss is a brutal death/grind concoction crashing with a variation of sounds akin to bands like Cephalic Carnage, Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation as well as a little bit of a Swedish death sound in the mix.
“Juggernaut” is fast-paced or mid-paced for the most part, and full of energy. Lots of riff changeovers make this a very active album. They have catchy, heavy galloping riffs, blast beats, rhythmically brutal breakdowns as well as technical ingredients. Vocals are a variation of higher pitch death vox and guttural death vox, and even a number of death metal shrieks.
Cory Spults (Job For A Cowboy) produced the chaos found on this ten song, thirty-six minute onslaught. Nothing is odd or out of the ordinary on the record, which shows this is a solid production.
Not to detract from what these gentleman from Arizona have created, but the chaos did however get to me a few times. With a little more structure Knights Of The Abyss could be headed for a groundbreaking album in the near future. Watch out for this juggernaut, it will run you the hell over!
