Lava coming down slowly
band definitively will never die! After so many albums and years on the
road, they still have the strength and inner fire to make more albums
and to tour again and again, wow!
to be expected nothing really new happens on Xecutioner ‘s Return.
Obituary as we are used to know and to appreciate. The sound has ‘nt
changed at all since times of “The End Complete”, Jon Tardy ‘s
voice still remains unique in the whole death metal world, and the
guitars still have that fluid deep sound that remembers a little bit a
river of lava coming down slowly but deathly from the mountain ‘s top.
little bit of fresh air that comes is due to the new guitar player Ralf
Randolla, that occupies the place of former guitarist Allen West. I
think Ralf Randolla is clearly the best guitar player of the two, and
this gives the compositions a little bit of technical finesse and some
really good solos. Also is
to mention the surprisingly high amount of rather fast tracks. This is
in my eyes a component that makes “Xecutioner ‘s Return”
pretty interesting as some
of the former records were rather boring because every song was held
rather in the slow/midtempo regions.
those who know Obituary, this is one of the best albums ever made, that
in my opinion has the same quality of milestones like “Cause of
Death” or “The End Complete”. For those who still don ‘t know
the band (shame on you), this is a really good occasion to get in touch
with Obituary, as this record is rather more “easy listening” as
some of the albums that have been published in former years.
