Latest News Reviews In the world of death metal, making vocals sound brutal, intense, and dark while also making them comprehensible is nigh impossible Just a flat out 'no'.
The two guitarists are capable of creating decent and, at times, well done riffs and leads, and their solos are pretty cool, too. Very awkward sentence one of many , but the point is that you seem to have some confusion over what 'riffs', 'leads' and 'solos' actually are. I found it interesting that they decided to put bagpipes in a melodic death album, because not many bands do that.
Nobody cares, and they most certainly aren't the only band. Sentences like these don't do much in telling readers you're over One of the best of Album Rating: 2. SuidAkrA Crogacht 4. Review Summary: I have no idea how to pronounce some of these song titles. Rank: 0 for The track was Conlaoch, and I instantly remembered why I got this album and I resigned myself to reviewing it.
If you would like to know more, please continue. The music is a finely honed version of what Suidakra does best, melodic death with Celtic influences.
Acoustic guitars and folk melodies abound, and the bagpipes are back for a few tracks. The songwriting seems to be finely tuned, and even better than you've heard them previously.
This is top-tier Grade A stuff. Whether or not it actually DOES is a different matter, but it would be well deserved. This is a badass album from start to finish. I'd highly recommend you check this album out. You will not be disappointed. Buy it, listen to it, and enjoy it. They got rid of that horrid singer they had on "Command To Charge", the best thing they could have ever done.

Arkadius Antonik and his Suidakra cohorts have been doing their thing for quite a while now, a constant presence since the mids when their mix of metal and folk melodies was an altogether rarer beast than it is in this day and age. Despite the intricate medieval melodies woven deep into their music, Suidakra have never really been a full-blown folk metal outfit, but rather a melodic death metal act with strong traditional influences.
Historically, their CDs would be entirely metal songs laced with epic melodies and the odd acoustic song or interlude breaking things up. A more recent band that fall under the same sort of category are Eluveitie, but Suidakra are a completely different kettle of fish.
Like a lot of melodic death metal acts though, Suidakra pack an awful lot into their songs, and the short running time strikes a fine balance to maintain the complexity of the songs without overloading the listener and eventually forcing the attention to wander. Not a job Antonik is used to, his melodic singing appears only in short passages rather than the extended sections and entire songs that Schoenen would provide, and is usually multi-tracked into a miniature choir of sorts.
Tina Stabel may be playing the part of a character in the story, but her presence is quite a convenient one, taking the onus off of Antonik for what is an anticipated aspect of the CD. The song is a rather basic arrangement, the same chords quite predictably running from acoustic to electric, but it offers a brief respite from the full-pelt nature of the rest of the music.
The rest of the songs certainly compensate for the simplistic nature of this one, with many switching up levels of intensity and swaying between melodious and scowling rage several times in their condensed lengths. Another strong CD in a catalogue of strong CDs, the presence of Marcel Schoenen is definitely missed, but not to the point of damaging the music.
The remaining band members and Kris Verwimp have carried on regardless and plugged the gaps admirably. The highlander bagpipes permeate the air from the word go. The tracks here are brutally heavy and lack nothing, as Arkadius drills out some ferocious riffing along with the occasional solos. Another brilliant factor which makes Suidakra such a prolific band is the drumming which is tight as fuck, efficient and not overdone.
Superb fills to effervescent dual kick drum work to excellent snare work; this album is really brilliant as the drumming is up to the mark. The clean sections are quite captivating, with a bit of piano work involved to soothe those bleeding ears. Another prominent element is the guitar solos which are incorporated in some songs. Overall, this is a heavy, heavy album and is well produced, well written and Suidakra has proved that folk metal with Gaelic influences does have a place in this world where chugga-chugga wiffs have taken over along with incoherent blastbeats.
Kudos to the Suidakra team. First and foremost, I need to say that this CD would have gotten a rating if it had not been for the scant, but still present "locker room 'folk' chants" in a couple of the tracks. I am a huge fan of layers upon layers upon layers of guitars and instruments harmonizing rhythms and leads. I've always hoped and wished for more bands to experiment with "excessive" harmonies and layering Betray My Secrets, and Saturnus' "Martyre" release were two of the first.
