7th Nemesis - _7th Nemesis_
by: Aaron McKay (4 out of 5)
This bastard came off strong right out of the gate! It's powerful, ripped with energy, and -never- lacking the beats and groove-laced rhythm to suck me in and hold me tight. The French five-piece boast a talented growler, Sargon, whose sole responsibility is to verbalize the swarm of blackish irritability this band stand in the midst of. The musicianship on this demo is highly respectable and quite frankly, I think 7th Nemesis is more talented than some outfits already performing on the black/death scene today. 7th Nemesis didn't lose my interest once in the more than eleven minutes this demo spun on my JVC (multiple times, I might add). While I wouldn't fuss too much with the guitar sound -- that is damn good -- the bass could be accentuated a lot more and the vocals could stand some work in the area of magnitude and dominance. If you got a good thing going, accentuate it! If the band explores expanding their style on "Phoenix Resurrectio" to a large degree, 7th Nemesis wouldn't be languishing in the bowels of metal's naiveté for very long. I expect their full length they are nearly done with, _Violentia Imperatrix Mundi_, might even be the catalyst this band needs.
