Angels of Darkness


Yet another band I discovered thanks to the Classic Metal Festival. Souls Demise played a pretty good set at the festival and I was looking forward to hearing their 4-song MCD.. And it's no deception (other than the short length, but I'll live... :)) The band plays what could be interpreted as "modern heavy metal" - quite rooted in the 80s but with a more contemporary approach, throwing in more heaviness and aggression - these guys found a way to mix both eras without screwing it up (not all who have attempted this can say that), and the result is quite pleasing to the ears. A more to the point description would be a mix of heavy and Thrash. The vocal style is more apparented to Thrash than to the more melodic metal genres, the vocalist using quite a harsh style that may turn off some fans of over-polished metal, but should pass very well with those who know something good when they hear it. ;) Precise, heavy, aggressive and in-your-face metal is what Souls Demise is all about. This is the kind of band I'd like to see pushed by metal labels nowadays.
