TORMENTOR ALLEGORIA - BLACKWINE - SKYSCRAPER  
This Quebec City sextet claims to use the strength of death metal with the 'ideology' of black metal and play 'extreme metal in a melodic and symphonic way' The presence of the keyboards alone makes the death metal part very difficult to believe. The resulting music seems to have come out as a mix of Strapping Young Lad, Children Of Bodom, typical lame so-called black metal and some conventional heavy metal. There are moments of chaos and all-out speed, some of them tarnished by non-metal sounds in the background, and moments where the synthesizers and weaker sections completely break the rhythm. For long moments Tormentor Allegoria come as close as any as achieving their stated and above quoted oxymoronic statement. Witness Burn The Heretics and The Insurrection, where the band veers in the heavy metal direction, as just two examples and it is obvious that it is difficult to pin Blackwine down into one style. The verdict is clearly that the listener rather do away with the keyboards and other similar elements but Blackwine can claim to be something more, even if not by much, than the usual wimpy release marketed to a metal audience. Read Dimmu Borgir, Cradle Of Filth and many others. - Anna Tergel
