Vexatus "Atom Pompeii" Redrum666 Records
After three years since the release of their debut, Vexatus strikes back. "Atom Pompei" brought us eight compositions. Does their style changed? Yes, a little bit – I think they sailed to the Swedish coast more closer than on the previous one, especially if we are talking about the sound. And if I heard a lot of Vader on the first album, now there is a lot of entombish inspirations. The guitars, the vocal reminds me the band which have recorded “Inferno” so much. From the other side – it is really OK, when you listen to this CD, but I can not do it too often. Don't get me wrong – when they play faster it is OK, but when the tempo is getting slower it sounds like they want to make the track longer – then I don't feel the power in it. I rather want them to play like in the “Half – Life”, which is the last track on the album. There aren't unnecessary slow-downs, which makes this album a little tiresome. The whole album is fine, without an ecstasy, but also without disappointment.
