What Remains

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)

Skarz is a Death/Thrash act composed of veterans of the Greek scene, with Dimitris Sakkes on bass and drums and Konstantinos K. on guitars and vocals. This is pretty much straight Death worship, with relentless energy and somewhat technical songwriting, though they don't really have the ear for riffs or solos that Chuck did. The tendency of the songs to go at hyperspeed also robs them of their identity, making many tracks kind of blend together. Still, this is a fairly professional work from a couple of seasoned pros, all supported by the Tardy-esque grunts of K. to Sakkes solid bass work, which is given a refreshing amount of prominence in the mix. There are even some standout tracks to be found, like the blackened, Obituary-esque "Kind of God" and "Family Obligation", which sounds like a song you'd find on Human and Individual Thought Patterns, though the ending is a bit sloppy and confused. This is far from perfect, but fans of Death and Obituary will find this album worth checking out and this band worth watching out for in the future.
