Glacial Fear - _Fetish Parade_
(Negatron Records, 2000)
by: Pedro Azevedo (6 out of 10)
Another Italian band releasing an album through the debuting Negatron Records, Glacial Fear present a strange kind of mix between "nu-metal" elements and the more traditional side of things. Featuring a front cover that probably aims at being provocative and shocking but ends up looking rather silly, _Fetish Parade_ is a collection of punchy, aggressive and sometimes relatively technical material delivered with adequate conviction. Since the electronic elements I was for some reason expecting never actually make an appearance, Glacial Fear deliver a far less pretentious album than the front cover and album title might suggest and simply churn out some decent riffs and rhythms accompanied by somewhat Cavalera-like vocals. The material does tend to sound somewhat samey after a while, however, eventually highlighting the lack of real outstanding passages and thus resulting in an average record.
