our review The Will to Kill
preview - review by dalia di giacomo____
synopsis - This album is not only a killer but a complete bone-breaking giant predator. The ferocious fast Death of The Will to Kill becomes just more melodic , and even hyper-heavier with enthralling hook lines. The once subtle melodic wave turns definitely into a manifest attitude nevertheless its "blasting brutality" is warranty for powerful fierce music that nothing has to do with the weak. Warkult is another must for all Death devotees who can taste here many excellent "facettes".
review - Produced and mixed by one of the more able and clever artists of the moment:
Jean F Dagenais (Kataklysm), Warkult of Phil Fasciana's mythical and veteran combo is successful in undertaking one of the best goals of Malevolent Creation's career: to
repeat and even to increase the already impressive success of its previous
brother-in -war "The Will to Kill", and the good side is that Warkult shows much evolution remaining anyway
unmistakably MC. First of all MC are able now to fully unite their typical
ferocity with more brutalism but also with more melodically marked
hook lines. Doing this, the band attacks more on the level of the pressure and bone crunching than on the level of knife cutting: the lead solos are in US style, varied and intense, but
more tuned down, more smoothened with only short peaks of blade, while the outstanding force is more
focused on the hyper-heavy steamhammering tank- heaviness of the rhythmic
section, and on the brachial low cavernous vocals by growler Kyle Symons who is getting better and better. In general MC slow a bit down with inhuman strength, launching anyway lots of their fast attacks,
alternating them with slower moments of aggressive heaviness that really reach the sphere of
Melodic Death. Therefore US old school impressive pitiless Death rhythm alternate with obsessive melodic catchy hyper heavy loops, enjoyable by the European audience. The violence and brutality remains at a very high
indisputable level, while the melodic parts shift the band a bit in direction raw
Melodic Death à la Kataklysm like mentioned, so that wild old school
walks hand in hand with genuine Melodic with grit . Dave Culross' drumming is
actually superb: blasting, propelling, supportive, varied but never intrusive. Both
concerning guitar technique and drumming itself some traces of Black tendencies are present. Tracks are varied too, interesting, mature, aggressive, merciless, a real gift for headbangers and Death devotees which have here summed up many enthralling faces of styles in a superb, neckbreaking unity .
Tempo changes are enjoyable and fluent, perfectly performed. The production underlines all these qualities.
We have more than a killer instinct but a full complete clever predator who is not only a machine.
Or better said we have a legion of expressions to which a certain emotionality in fury is not unknown.
