DEATHTALE - THE ORIGIN OF HATE - ART GATES RECORDS
This third full-length features 10 songs and an intro called The Dark One. The intro is an uneventful prelude to Bloodgod which features a competent solo, guitar sound and riffs with promise. Thrashy sounds dominate. Gilli Gehring and Arian Rezaie showcase their guitar work well. The technical side does not go wild into other genres and keeps it metal. The presence of death metal elements and the leading instruments elevate The Origin Of Hate. Born And Broken and Origin Of Hate push along with a healthy pace and borrowing small bits from hardcore too, perhaps most so in Patrick Pieler's vocals. Embrace The Fire is about 21st century earth perhaps? The song itself reminds of mid paced Swedish death metal sounds. Unleash The Wolves has the solo coming in early, providing a highlight for the catchy song that is enjoyable without being original. Seven Sins has the band fully into the Swedish sound and moving away from thrash. Walk Over Water is no miracle but a competent aggressive heavy metal song. The Heretic is thrashier once again. Hell Exists provides no proof but presents a case that a good solo always benefits a song. Hypocrite closes these 40 minutes with a bit of Pantera and more of that ever present solo. The band's site lists the members' likes, height, hair and eye colour, among other attributes. – Anna Tergel
