Well I�ll be damned, Fromtheashes have actually managed to produce a damn enjoyable record this time around. I haven�t really been convinced by their earlier releases, and I�ve uttered some harsh words from time to time. But if the keep this up I might even go as far as to say they�re really good.
Out of eleven tracks there are only two that are over a minute long, and I�m not gonna complain about that. One of the selling points here is just that; short grinding bits that packs a punch and even offers a hardcore-chorus in Inget Kr�ngel. This is such a development from last time I got a promo from these guys. It�s not just generic crap anymore. The musicianship�s undergone a huge evolvement as all instruments are actually at the same place at the same time, which can�t be said for some of their previous outputs. And some riffing and part of a few tunes are really killer; like for instance the intro to Buy the Lie - That�s really damn good!
Short, energetic, crusty grinding. Nothing new under the sun but damn effective anyway!
