Scariot - _Death Forlorn_
(Demolition Records, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
This is just one of those weird records that come out of nowhere and at first kind of impresses you, but then after numerous listens it loses its charm. The band in question here is Scariot, a weird melding of progressive metal vocals, strong guitar riffing and death metal grunts helping lead the charge. I know what you're thinking: "What the fuck?" Don't worry. You're not alone. Comprised of members from Blood Red Throne, In the Woods..., Carpathian Forest and Trail of Tears, Scariot loses its charm in the sense that it is offering too much, too fast. The styles of music change at breakneck speed, leaving metal fans scurrying to find out if their CD has skipped discs. The musicianship is the most obvious characteristic that seems to dominate here, with Scariot showcasing some fancy guitar licks and song arrangements throughout. Too bad the ideas didn't meld together too strong or this would have been a kick-ass record.
