Krisiun – Forged in Fury

No Image Available

If you are into death metal then the name of the Brazilian three-headed monster Krisiun is familiar to you. The three Camargo brothers attack the world with their tenth full-length album that is produced by Erik Rutan which is enough to know that the sound production is top notch. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the musical content. It is obvious that Krisiun consists of very good musicians and each one of the three brothers know very well what to do with his instrument. The problem is that the tracks are too long for a band like Krisiun, almost all of them are around the six minutes mark and there isn’t much that stays in your mind after the listening. If this was a debut record I would have liked it but this is a Krisiun album and “Forged in Fire” is not on the same level as my personal favorites “Southern Storm” and “Conquerors of Armageddon”. Tracks like “Dogma of Submission” or “Isolated Truth” are decent but the rest is just fast paced death metal with nothing that stands out. The bonus cover of Black Sabbath’s “Electric Funeral” is not something to talk about either. Those guys have proven that they are capable of doing much better work so I hope their next release will be better. (Zvetan)
