Acid Death are one of the oldest Greek bands that have been going from 1989 to 2001. They started from classic Thrash Metal and ended up as Progressive Death Metal band and after a 10 year break they are now back! In that time the band have played with some other great bands such as Kreator, The Haunted, Impaled Nazarene, Children of Bodom, Mayhem and Rotting Christ, and with the band members also being in other metal bands, giving them great gigging experience.

It’s great to know that even after all this time, the guys are back on form and have produced a great album here. It starts off really strong and has a classic progressive Death Metal feel to it throughout which also includes and ends with a technical instrumental track. I’m unsure all Death metal fans will appreciate this album, but I do hope you give it a listen cause they are some great tracks in here.

I personally really enjoyed it, especially the guitar riffs and solo’s, with the album having some really catchy tunes and harmony to it, and is definitely an album to check out if you love your Thrash/Death/Progressive/Tech Metal. The lyrics are also great with Savvas Betinis voice being strong, aggressive and powerful!

I hope we don’t have to wait another 10 years for their next release!
