Crazy, crazy Norwegians, I love you guys!! That Scandinavian country knows how to Black Metal obviously, but also how to turn in some sick, adventurous and innovative extreme music.

V:28 stands for a high energy engine capable of wicked kicking somber music. Dark/ambient and spacey keyboards, industrial noises, crunchy riffs, distorted leads and arpeggios, pretty twisted at times, and raspy voices backed by a bombastic rhythmic section lead the listener through a maze of wicked sonic structures. Melodic, modern and avant-gardist are all suitable definitions describing their songwriting, and great caution was taken to reproduce all of this creative madness. Even the slightly screamed vocals weren't overdone and I greatly appreciate it. I reviewed their earlier work "Soul Saviour", of which I have fond memories, and it was with renewed pleasure that I rediscovered this excellent act and their newest opus, which happens to be the last chapter of a trilogy dealing with the end of humanity.

I liked all the songs on "Violution" but, was greatly entertained by this infernal trio: "Pattern of the Weak", "Surrender to Oblivion" and "When Entropy Decreases."
