The Swedish metal band Meathook never seize to surprise me, in a very pleasant way, may I add. I've been following this band since the start pretty much, and the improvements are phenomenal. This band knows how to make good metal, no doubt about it. Not only that, they've found the perfect balance between aggression and melody, mixing different metal styles into something completely personal. This EP will appeal to metalheads from all the different subgenres of metal (unless you like power metal, in that case you can stop reading now). The base is some form of death, but you can hear traces from thrash, and many different harmonies from black metal. All of this, neatly tied together with just an ounce of very technical Meshuggah-like riffs. This EP is pure energy, and also it contains one of the best guitar solos I've ever heard (and I'm usually not a sucker for those kind of things). The production is great, but that's not suprising since they've been able to record in a professional studio with the master of demos himself (Jari Lindholm). My only problem concerning the production is about the cymbals. They sound a bit strange, but that can easily be arranged. And also sometimes a riff tends to repeat itself maybe just a little bit too long. Other than that, this demo beats almost all the albums released by established artists that I've heard in a while. If someone doesn't give this band a record deal soon, I am going to start a label and sign them myself. That's how much I believe in this.
