Fidus Achates

Rated 4.04/5 (80.87%) (23 Votes)

Remember the kind of cookie-cutter melodeath we used to get by the bucketload back in like 2001? Well, apparently that wave is just now hitting Russia, like the last Honeymooners episode finally hitting Alpha Centauri. Here we have a disc of music totally caught up in a trend that is thankfully over with here in more civilized realms. This isn't badly done for what it is, and it has some nice guitar melodies, but the drums are a boring rat-tat-tat and the vocals are a truly terrible rasp that hacks and hacks with no dynamic or style. I don't have much to say about music like this except: please stop doing that.
