ALBUM: Megascavenger – “At The Plateaus Of Leng”
LABEL: Chaos Records
GENRE: Death Metal
RATING: 7 /10
This is pure death metal celebration. Just look at the line up on this record, the captain of the ship Rogga Johansson and navigating officer Brynjar Helgetun have rounded up some of death metal finest, Dave Ingram (Benediction, Bolt thrower), Kam Lee (Mantas, Massacre), Aad Kloosterwaard (Sinister), Martin van Drunen (Asphyx, Hail of Bullets), Dave Rotten (Avulsed), Felix Stass (Crematory) and the non death metal vocalist Ilkka Järvenpää (National Napalm Syndicate).
The music is a mix of old Swedish old school melodic death like early In flames and Dark Tranquillity and a clear hats off to the bands of guests on this record. The only weak point of the record is the one with Ilkka Järvenpääs vocals. Not because it’s a track without growling, but because the vocals are weak and flat. Other than that, as I said in the beginning of the review, a pure death metal celebration.
