THE HERETIC - GOSPEL SONGS IN E MINOR - XTREEM  
Xtreem Music calls The Heretic “Spain’s #1 Symphonic Black/Death outfit” which makes me wonder how many such bands there are in that country? Could any country seriously have more than two “symphonic black/death” acts? I guess that makes the statement probably true. The Heretic’s new album ironically has Christian suggestions all over it. Aside from the album’s title, songs have names like We’ve Turned Into Saints or The Day Of The Lord. Whatever the case the band is a mixture of different genres of music. The first song, called Sunday Morning, The 13th, sounds like Sodom. On other occasions the band has symphonic moments, big arrangements and even a progressive touch like on Did I Say Why I Hate You? The guitars attempt new sounds, although it sounds danceable on at least one occasion. Check out the end of the aforementioned We’ve Turned Into Saints for instance. Then again there are several very good riffs on this album. The vocalist changes his tone and manages to keep things fresh and different. In contrast, the presence of the keyboards takes character away from the band making them sound like a rehashed Dimmu Borgir at times and Mercenary at others. Give The Heretic a chance if bands like Darkseed, Atrocity, Dimmu Borgir and Crematory are your cup of tea. - Anna Tergel
