Rated 4/5 (80%) (4 Votes)
If I didn't know better, I would have bet this album, The Monster in Me from Tunisia's Carthagods, was a Brainstorm record. The title reminds me of Liquid Monster, the artwork a little bit, too. Then there's the music; thumping heavy/power metal with booming vocals, a thick guitar tone and keys to round out the sound and amp up the melody. I found the songwriting to mirror Brainstorm as well, sometimes pretty catchy, other times not so much. The performances are the real highlights as the singer delivers his lines with a lot of presence and the guitarist is truly adept at spinning a neoclassical solo. Carthagods' playing is better than their songwriting, which seems to be a common enough occurrence in today's metal scene. Both are above average, though, so if you like crunchy power metal, give The Monster in Me a spin.
