CALLENISH CIRCLE - [Pitch.Black.Effects]

The new album of the Dutch Death Metal band is a pleasant surprise, even for those that were ware of their talent. The new album is as melodic and as catchy as it should be, but also heavy as hell, and as groovy as needed. Mixing Swedish Death and Thrash, and managing to create songs that don't sound alike, some with slower and heavier grooves, others more close to Thrash, the band manages to keep the interest high until the end. The use of some of the finest keyboard lines, along with some electronic sounds, makes things even more spicy. An album that will hardly get out of your CD player.
