Detonation – Reprisal [Re-release]

No Image Available

The melodic Death Metal of Detonation was quite interesting for me, back in the demo days till their debut “An Epic Defiance”. Nothing really special, but a good listen in the 1990s Göteborg vein and if I remember correctly, without those dreadful clean vocals during the chorus. A decade later (this was first released by the band themselves in 2011) the melodies and the 1990s Göteborg influences are almost all gone. A more modern sounding Detonation with still some Björler influences in the riffs. And that having said, more towards The Haunted than At The Gates. It is without doubt clear these guys are fine musicians, I do hope they will create more memorable riffs/songs with their new album. If Björler can do it…(Ricardo)
