Les Ekorches IV Demons

Les Ekorches IV Demons
Les Ekorches is a terrific concept and IV Demons is a great advancement for this acoustic/cello metal outfit. They survived the awkward juvenility of their debut, resulting in a far superior effort this time around. The song structures are engaging and performances tight. Still, even the world's greatest theories don't always wind up working out when put into action. Brass tacks: the whole non-distorted guitar or bass thing is little more than a gimmick and detracts from what could truly be brutal tunes were it not for feeling as though they're sorely lacking the thickness and dominance typical rock instruments bring. Regardless of members' various pedigrees, which happen to include Voivod, Ghoulunatics and B.A.R.F., Les Ekorches and IV Demons feel like unrealized potential - the deflation of hoping to get laid by your dream date yet winding up with blue balls.
