Impending Doom has crafted a stunning, deliberate and unrelenting collection with a sense of purpose, drive and continuity. “Death Will Reign” is the culmination of all that has come before, mining the bleak darkness and “scare” factor of last year’s “Baptized in Filth” and the dynamic fury of “There Will Be Violence” and “The Serpent Servant”.

Spoken_IllusionAfter the last album, a self-titled release back in 2007 which for me was a bit of a mis step in their musical career, they have returned with a much stronger attempt. “Illusion” is a album that fuses great melody with solid hardcore / hardrock.

The album comes in with the driving beat fuelled “stand alone” which is a great introduction to the album and sets the foundation nicely of what one can expect throughout. The vocals stand out an are a notable improvement over previous Spoken albums, and Matt Baird, the only remaining original member is able to mix aggression with clean vocal changes throughout with effortless energy. From the start the album hurtles you into a aggression fuel rock extravaganza.

This is a solid riff rock album even though there are some generic qualities to it, it’s like I have heard this before. The sea bands are increase, and to separate the good ones from the bad are getting harder, and the genre’s are bleeding into one another making it so much harder to identify where exactly where some bands fit now days, like the post-hardcore scene and some of their ridiculous band names I find that the genre’s are somewhat becoming the same. This is a solid rock album to put it plain and simple. Its safe, and clean. They have not tried to overdo it, nor have they tried to risk it. Continue reading »
