Tank Destroyer - Head Of The Demon

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Here is a review/preview of "Tank Destroyer's" upcoming album "Head Of The Demon".This is one highly anticipated album and from the time the first track starts cranking out you will be blown away by the production.This album shreds and everything is pushed to the limits,heavy as fuck !! First track "Broken Sermons Of False Prophets" is a punishing slice of Stoner Doom with a riff and a guitar attack that slays,they couldn't have picked a better way to kick off this album.The vocal sound is just as bruising as the guitar sound ! I am not going to do the usual and try and compare them with anyone else because this really can standout on its own."Human Epidemic" keeps up the momentum with a riff that slices and cuts through with some powerful distorted riffage.The solo is a highlight of the track,really classy playing while keeping the heaviness at the maximum."Withered" follows with a slower more melodic intro piece that adds a bit of a different flavor to the album.This track flows real nice,beautifully constructed but with some twists that make it a stand out track on the album."Bonfires And Bloody Knuckles" is a surprise with the acoustic guitar making a appearance,the speech going on in the background gives the track a ethereal feel.Somehow haunting and melodic at the same time,a interesting track indeed."Saints Amongst The Begotten" brings the band back in full tilt mode,another great riff and vocalist Chris Sherrod giving another killer vocal performance.Some more awesome guitar work is featured,this band really has all the chops.One thing that also has to be touched upon is the great sound and playing of bassist Mike Sliclen, the bass lines are a real feature of this album.Once again,killer guitar solo's and shredding !! "Apathy Lullaby" follows with a Doom ridden riff and more of the same relentless attack that this album seems to have no lack of.Really good tune that passes the six minute mark but never feels like it while you are listening."Remnants Of Lost Days" starts off with a moody intro section which has a kind of Psychedelic mood about it before launching into total heaviness complete with some excellent lead guitar work.This is a instrumental,every good album needs one of these and this is a fine piece of work.Dramatic and Intense,the track builds up to powerful climax before grinding to a halt.Final track is the title track and its a 10 minute plus epic,epic in length and in musical arrangement.One of the highlights of the album,i listen to this track 3 times in a row when i first heard it.The way the vocals blend with the guitar work is exceptional and once again there is more killer riffage to indulge in.The solo in this track is particularly outstanding,the way it swirls around your head.At the 5 minute mark there is a great tempo change as they bring things down to total Doom mode,once again it has to be pointed out how over the top the production and sound on this album is.The final track is a fitting end to what is one of the albums of the year,made to be played as loud as possible.You must check it out once released.9.5/10 www.myspace.com/tankdestroyer1
