Miażdżący brutalny death metal w wykonaniu tureckiego HERETIC SOUL; najnowsza druga płyta, która przywodzi na myśl polską czołówkę: VADER i HATE! Dodatkowo miksy odbyły się w białostockim Hertz Studio!
Lords Of Metal [84/100]:
Heretic Soul hail from Turkey and play brutal, heavy death metal with a hint of deathcore every now and then. 'Nihilistic Attitude' is the second album by these four guys, after their debut 'Born Into This Plague' from 2010. Besides that, they have released a demo in 2006 and an EP ('Life Becomes Our Grave' in 2008.
On 'The Nihilistic Attitude', we get a big dose of Americana death worship, with influences like Monstrosity and especially old Morbid Angel, with some modern day deathcore and Behemoth added to the mix. I am not a big fan of that last band mentioned, but the combination of oldschool American death and 'newschool' Behemoth technodeath works out pretty well. The 'core' elements are used sparsely and give the music a nice dash of extra violence and aggression - that is not to say that the rest of the songs are not blasting energetically from the speakers, but I like the fact that the band have given themselves the option to switch weapons, sometimes within a song. Whether it is blunt force trauma they use to overwhelm you, or a precision slasher with surgical steel, it does not matter what mode they are in: Heretic Soul will hit you. Hard. Crushingly convincing.
