Acrassicauda Only The Dead See The End Of The War
In the words of one archaic advertising campaign: they've come a long way, baby. From a very shitty metal band struggling to stay together in an effort to escape the terrors of their real life to refugees struggling to spread the word of metal to bona fide extreme music quartet, Acrassicauda assert their legitimacy on this slick EP. From hot solos and primal vocal delivery harkening back to early Sepultura, the chunky nature and unique angle taken on Only The Dead See The End Of The War's four tracks are refreshing and bold, if not altogether memorable. Factoring in some modest Middle Eastern influence via instrumentation and structure, yet never forgetting how the riffs from early Metallica and Megadeth albums inspired them in the first place, Acrassicauda strive to offer something new and invigorating to the world of metal. Mission accomplished. Now let's see if they can hold our attention for more than 20 minutes and beyond the fascination with their amazing personal saga. (Vice)
