Dark Reincarnation

Rated 3.29/5 (65.71%) (7 Votes)

The Finnish purveyors of everything mercilessly brutal and heavy, The Soul Exile, have released a new four-song demo, this time titled Dark Reincarnation. Modern, straightforward Death Metal is the name of the ugly game once again.

The Soul Exile is not far removed from the similar Death Metal massacre that the true US Death Metal giants, Cannibal Corpse, can offer musically. Eetu Keränen, on vocals, could almost be George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher's little brother who has a bit of a Metalcore-ish colored vibe in his voice. Eetu's other troops tend to keep things on a more extreme and faster side of Death Metal, sort of feeding the band's common hunger to be taken as a serious entity on the map of Death Metal.

Indeed, this isn't bad. The Soul Exile are determined to go through even the thickest concrete wall with their relatively tight execution of this new material, but the songs unfortunately tend to be a teeny-weeny too faceless and directionless to really stand out. Don't get me wrong though because The Soul Exile can also create some positive havoc by throwing in a few technically orientated and pleasingly varied moments that work out as some true ear candies. If they just were able to keep things a bit more varied, the interest level for them would get higher.
