Dissimulation - _Prakeikimas_
(Ledo Takas, 2005)
by: Pedro Azevedo (7 out of 10)
Somewhere between thrash and black metal, Lithuania's Dissimulation return with _Prakeikimas_, a follow-up to their long awaited debut _Maras_. The album starts in agile, energetic fashion, and upon first listen instantly captured my interest more effectively than its predecessor. However it soon reverts back to slower riffs that fail to have as much impact, but that may be a matter of taste. Fortunately there is a good enough mixture of styles throughout the album to keep things interesting. Much like _Maras_, _Prakeikimas_ dispenses with fancy melodies to concentrate fully on a succession of riffs designed to keep metal heads banging; and Dissimulation certainly deserve credit for being quite good at that. A slight improvement over its predecessor in my view, enough to definitely justify a few spins -- and if this happens to be your genre of choice, _Prakeikimas_ should be a perfectly safe bet.
