Agregator - Edeneast
This is something as unusual as a good band from Hungary
- not that I claim that that couldn't exist, it's just that we're not
exactly spoiled with that.
Agregator has previosly released 2 demos - Puszta Lét in 2000 and Túlontúl in 2001, and both than contained half hungarian/half english lyrics, and in this dmo they have recorded a mixture of the english versions of the songs to an half hour of good deathmetal.
I have a hard time to rightfully compare this to any existing band in the same genre, since this has quite a bit of originality to it, but we don't get much surprises here. these guys play metal after the schoolbook of how to make a good debutalbum in death metal, but it is nevertheless good.
The quality of the material on this demo is a bit unequal, as the 4 first songs - as I understand it taken from the second demo - contain brilliant leadguitars, melodies, vocals and are catchy jewels in the metalscene from eastern europe, but the rest - taken from the first demo - doesn't quite keep up the quality as we would have wanted it .
Tthe vocals are very good, and they really are a big part
of making the soundpicture in this. Good, clear and powerful growling
of high quality, which is being accompanied by deathmetal riffs with
a lot of powermetal-catchy riffs and melodies to it.
The titletrack, for example, has a really catchy driven mainriff that could fit in any of today's most wellestablished bands repertoar.
With a bit work on a more characteristic touch, and a
personal sound, on the songs this could be really good in the future.
they apperantly have the musical vision, the vocals and the melodies
- I just hope they get an honest chance to develop this.
