SHRAPNEL STORM “We Come in Peace…”
Don’t confuse this band with SHRAPNEL from Australia. These guys are from Finland and practice a very acceptable death metal forged in old vibes in early 90’s. They’ve been active since 2009 and it seems like they released a couple of demos before this one. Actually, the roots are strong and all guitar riffs sound apocalyptic and full of aggressive tunes.
Also, there is a particular dark atmosphere throughout the both compositions. As aforementioned, there are great vibes a la old school and ominous lines here and there. This band is melodic but they know how to drive guitar lines to transmit painful sensations. If you ask me, I would ask for more material for catch the essence and the personality of the band. Two songs is a poor demo this time, and I hope to hear more material soon. – Victor Varas
