ALBUM: Syn:drom -“Iconoclasm”
LABEL: ViciSolum Productions
GENRE: Death Metal
RATING: 8.5 / 10
Weak, pink, philately. These are not words you shoulda woulda coulda use to describe Syn:drom.
I don’t know what “Iconoclasm” means, but it sure is a cool title. It sounds heavy, unyielding, monolithic. And so is this album. If brutal and/or technical death metal is your thing, you are sure to have a good time with the second album by these Swedes.
Ferocious, adamantine, post-fan-shit. More words to illustrate this buckshot of cataclysmic deathness. And even if you are a punk head, thinking that any song with more than two riffs automatically suck, I hear from good sources that these guys kill on stage. So, keep an eye out for them!
This is good, no doubt. But do we need it? Yes! I would much rather spend 40 minutes listening to Syn:drom and “Iconoclasm” than anything by, say, Hate Eternal. And it doesn’t hurt that the album art is this awesome. Man, it’s so damn good I have to give it to you again, in bigger resolution.
