XTERNITY “Expulsion into Depth”
Metal music world is still changing daily and from time to time we find solid hybrids, where different subgenres collide in a good way.
These German guys created a great debut album (damn!! it’s a good cover illustration, btw!) forged in thrash metal ADN, black metal elements and a great sense of melodic stuff. All tracks have the same metallic spirit and I really liked “On the Graveyard” which is an excellent example of what these guys want to sound: sharp guitar riffs, dynamic drums and corrosive vocal lines. Also, I have to say that the band managed some interesting musical arrangements and it denotes high care in pre-production, if you know what I mean. If you ask me, this is nothing I haven’t heard before, but certainly all elements are on its place, and I’m sure that this band shows high maturity musically speaking, in the album. Far to be the same black-thrash-melodic-death stuff, these guys formed a personality, and that’s pretty important to metal world nowadays. – Victor Varas
