2 Ton Predator
Released: 2003, Die Hard Music
Reviewer: Lord of the Wasteland
DEMON DEALER is the third album from Sweden’s 2 Ton Predator and it is their heaviest yet. This album kicks ass! Similar in style to fellow countrymen The Haunted and Carnal Forge, 2 Ton Predator is heavy, chugging metal with speedy riffs. Vocalist Mogge’s style has been compared to that of Pantera’s Phil Anselmo, which I can agree with to some degree. The guitars are downtuned to get a heavier sound and the bass and drums are mixed evenly so you can feel the “thump”.
The sound achieved on this album really gets under you skin and you can feel the groove. The songs on DEMON DEALER never let up. “Slowly Slaughtered”, “Pipeyard Killings”, “Transparent Venom Addiction” and the title track are my favorites. “Bone Brigade” (which they have shot a video for), “Ready To Die” and “Henchmen” are great tracks, as well. The only song I really don’t care for is “A Funeral Romance”. Otherwise, this CD is stellar from start to finish.
DEMON DEALER may be tough to track down since the band is on a small label but if you can find it, pick this one up. It should be on my “Best of 2003” list!
