Stressfest - Promo 2003
Swedish band Stressfest has been around since 2000 and
consist of members that has been playing with various bands in the past,
Expulsion is one of them.
First track is the least thrashy on the album and has
a heavy groove, but what strikes me on that one is the poor vocals,
at times it sound terrible.
In the third track Deadneck I gets kind of a Ministry
feeling from the early nineties, mostly because the distorted vocals
and a more monotone style of the music.
The two things that I like the most on this demo is the leadguitars by Chris Vowden, you can find some really great playing here, but mostly I like the drumming from Calle Fransson, and these are the two guys that earlier played in the band Expulsion.
Stressfest might not be the best band I've ever heard,
but their are definitely not the worst either. They have more quality
than many bands that are giving record-deals these days, so if there
is some justice in the world Stressfest ought to be signed. I can smell
that there is a lot of potential in the band and with a decent production
this might actually be something.
