Vehemence - Helping The World To See (Metal Blade Records) - Back
“Helping the World To See” is the second release for Vehemence on Metal Blade Records. They continue their brutal and melodic death style from their last record “God Was Created.” For those who have been living under a rock since 2002, the band has elements that might remind you of Amon Amarth, Suffocation, Deicide, Dying Fetus and some of the more melodic parts are little like Hypocrisy. Every song will get your head nodding for different reasons. These guys have created an album that is dynamic, brutal and melodic. It’s hard to pick what songs I like the most when just about every track is first-class; this is a well-formed record. To start, “By Your Bedside,” “Spirit of the Soldier,” and “We Are All Dying” shows why a label like Metal Blade signed these metal-heads. Anyone would be proud of a band that has this ability and continuing potential of unlimited improvement. All the elements are there that can allow them to expand and improve on each previous album. “To the Taste,” “You Don’t Have to Be Afraid Anymore,” and “What Could Go Wrong?” are a few more songs that help state my case. You have to hear the tracks to understand what I mean. They even have an instrumental that makes this CD complete. It’s as if Vehemence is on the verge of making an album that everyone will talk about for years to come. I can’t wait for more insane brutality!
