Even though I see the name Valgrind for the first time, this Italian Death Metal band exists since 1996 and ‘Millenium of Night Bliss’ is their fifth album. From the start their influences are showing up: the opening track ‘Teshu’ sounds more Morbid Angel than Morbid Angel has sounded for years. The guitar work of Daniele Lupidi and Umberto Poncina is on a very high level as evidenced by the harmonies in ‘Banished by celestial harmonies’ (yes, the title is not randomly chosen). Despite the two melodic interludes ‘Tenebra corona mundi’ and ‘Fear from beyond’, the other tracks in ‘Millenium of Night Bliss’ are solid death metal with grinding drumming, old-school Death Metal guitar riffs and the vocals of Massimiliano Elia which are not exactly my mug of beer but it is up to the individual listener to decide where they are good or not. Valgrind doesn’t offer something extraordinary or revolutionary in their Death Metal but what they do they do it quite well and obviously the guys have some good ideas and know how to play their instruments. If you want to hear some good Morbid Angel-worshipping tunes then ‘Millenium of Night Bliss’ is something to look out for!
