Soul Destroyers

Rated 3.82/5 (76.36%) (11 Votes)

Finland's URN are back with another insane Black/Thrash assault, much in the vein of the two previous albums.  But, if one were to draw a parallel with Deströyer 666, then sound-wise Soul Destroyers is to its predecessors what Phoenix Rising was to Unchain the Wolves: More disciplined, tighter, cleaner and still kicking serious amount of ass, but in a different way - which may require several listens before it really clicks.  Fans of both Deströyer 666 and Desaster are bound to find some affinities here, as every time I listened to this album, I always caught a passage - either musical or vocal - that reminded me of those bands.  The very aggressive, demented harsh vocals are still here, of course, and kind of drive the show, but without overshadowing the thunderous drums and the vicious, fast and heavy riffs that URN never fail to deliver.  The album is overall very fast-paced, sometimes slowing down to the higher end of mid-paced and not much more than that.  In a way one could say that these guys are simply following in the path of the aforementioned bands, but they still offer a good product.  I still prefer their previous material, but this one is has been getting better with each listen.
