Holy Death Metal Batman. Krisiun spent a long time in the doldrums after the brilliant Conquerors Of Armageddon, but with the strong comeback of AssassiNation they signaled their return to form with head-on, brutal Death Metal. This is their seventh or eighth album — depending on whether you count Bloodshed as an album — and it is without a doubt their best work to date.

Southern Storm is in no wise a change of style for this band, but it is just the heaviest, most relentless and crushing album they have ever recorded. Furious, steel-fisted riffs come pummeling out one after another, bristling with hooks, and make every songs a killer. Even the cover of a lame Sepultura song cannot cramp Krisiun's style this time out, and honestly, "Refuse/Resist" is probably the last decent tune Sepultura recorded. (Seriously though, could they not have covered "Primitive Future" instead?)

Inventive and energetic songwriting makes this album a real winner, with every song blistering with catchy riffs and head-smashing violence. I have always liked Krisiun, but they have never sounded as feral as they do on this disc, and the urgent vocals and sometimes brilliant leads are just icing on the cake. Crank this fucker up and let Krisiun beat you to a bloody pulp.
