Forlorn Legacy - _Omega_
by: Brian Meloon (4 out of 5)
Forlorn Legacy bill themselves as the "premiere Croatian technical death metal band". While that may be true, the word "technical" is a bit of a stretch. Forlorn Legacy are a good band, but overly technical they're not. This demo is their third effort since 1996, and is available in MP3 format from their webpage. Their style is pretty typical death metal, with good musicianship, above average guitar solos, some clean vocals and some melodic sections. In other words, it's not very different from what a lot of other bands (such as Shadows Fall) are doing these days. However, the band are pretty good at the style, and with the right break, I could see them being signed shortly. They usually strike a nice balance between melody and brutality, though I'd like to see a little more diversity in terms of riff styles. The sections seem to be either melodic or brutal, with little in the way of a middle ground. The production is top notch: clear and appropriate for the music. The band are currently planning a new release. With some improvement, and a further refining of their style, they could be quite good. As it is, this demo is worth checking out if you have the bandwidth.
