Shadow Music Ryan Harding Review by
Ryan Harding
Label: GUN

Everything you've heard someone who hasn't ever actually sat and listened to death metal say about it - the constant double bass, low vocals, constant speed - is what KRISIUN is all about.

APOCALYPTIC REVELATION, the third full length from Brazil's KRISIUN, dares any weak people to get in the way. Their prior release, BLACK FORCE DOMAIN, was known and hailed for its relentless aggression. You'll see no new logo, blurbs from popular metal ‘zines, or the promise of a fucking Wolverine comic book on the cover for this one, because APOCALYPTIC REVELATION is thankfully BLACK FORCE DOMAIN revisited. Anyone who wonders why I'm lauding them for this probably hasn't heard BFD, and will hopefully try it out. Anyone who already heard it (and survived) knows exactly where I'm coming from.

So what is each Krisiun song like? They are a fist in the face of all weak trends and bandwagon jumping false posers. Each song brings a barrage of whiplashing riffs, all-out blasting interrupted only by frantic drum rolls, solos reminiscent of Vader without whammy bars, and vocals between the styles of Jason Blachowicz and Max Cavalera. APOCALYPTIC has fewer solos than BLACK FORCE, but they are just as crazy. The production this time is even better, giving definite shape to the Krisiun brand of chaos. It's rare for a full minute to pass on this album without a saturation of blast beats.

“Apocalyptic Victory” and “Vengeances Revelation” are superior tracks, though not by very much. There’s too much aggression to cause boredom, if you say otherwise you are WRONG!!!!!! Whoever told me to write about Metallica, everything here lays those cock rock pussies to waste. If you eagerly support bands with an “I’m going to blast no matter what” attitude, obtain this immediately.
