"The weapon -Against you all…motherfucker’s- has been recorded by J-F Dagenais from Kataklysm in the middle earth of St-Zenon at Wild studio"
preview - review by dalia "gryphon_spirit" di giacomo____
synopsis - Hyperblast brutal Black with a big component of brutal/ferocious bulldozing Death à la Malevolent Creation. Not dramatically innovative or original, but well their tracks impact well, with good loops and Black technicality too. The care for sound is remarkable. If you are into bands like Malevolent Creation and Misery Index, you will appreciate Anhkrehg without doubts.
review - Threatening images of war. It seems that
war is more than a nightmare in North America. Noises of war, machinegun
fire, bullets, a sinister feeling of bomb explosion, so the intro of
this demo. Produced by the first prince of Metal J-F Dagenais, Anhkrehg from Quebec bring substantially the terror of Malevolent Creation into Black
. Ankhregh are angry, violent, brutal both during the
blasting assaults and in the slower passages . Anyway there is much of tremendous punishing
Death here, supported by the constant tremolo technique. I don't know , but slowly i get the suspicion that to underline
the good impact in puncto enjoyability of tracks belonging to the "Dagenais
family" is a kind of insult , without understanding that is the best compliment
one could tell. We are extreme metal reviewers used to brutality and ache .
Of course Anhkrehg are very brutal , of course Anhkrehg are for an extreme audience.
But sorry, who are the Weak and Feeble who are interested to this?
No one, only who care about Black
and eventually Death are interested and i think they have already seen and listened
to everything possible in the genre. Therefore saying to them that Anhkrehg
can be interesting as option of "fast blasting brutal music/with some melody inside",
could be an attractive particular even if we there isn't much new
that you don't have already found, in a form or in another, elsewhere.
But combining violent brutal Death with screaming and canonic Black they open up a
certain variation in the Black , combining hyperblasting drumming attacks
together with military call to arms, yes, they open up a variation in Black.
"Unfortunately" Black still is an "elitaire" genre.
But better to face the truth: Black metal has failed to conquer like
Death metal did and does. It is always difficult to catch some credibility in Black,
maybe the Olympus of all genres yet so victim of itself. At this point
be welcome oh thou Canadian blood, it doesn' matter if from non-
Scandinavian parts of Europe or Canada or whatever. This is why i will support
also Black variations from extra
Scandinavian areas, bands who work hard developing the style, but
gaining more difficulties than success.
No noble and solemn evocation of red carpets for the fallen angels,
no atmospheric predominant synths, but we have the same attitude to set everything on fire like we find in the best acts of
Europe, in spite of all differences. No bombastic or symphonic frames
from Dimmu Borgir. Here you have tons of sweat and adrenaline, blood and rage,
burnt and dry fields of death, the true one, that
slaughters. The one that many modern and ancient soldiers have
actually seen. After all i see positively this band, though i can imagine and understand the reactions of the European Black hosts towards this new work. But ehi they have their image and their
sound: Misery Index or Malevolent Creation in Black we could say.
Rating: 8/10 with reservations (only 4 tracks - the full length will have 10 songs)
