Some will be fortunate enough to have the deluxe edition, which features 5 more tracks, 4 being different songs which are not available on the regular edition and the other being a reworked version of “Something Very Strange”. The 5 songs add up to an additional 30 minutes of music, which is pretty cool by itself. Honestly, none of them are especially great to me but the hardcore fans will definitely want the additional tracks.
Songs like GENERATION STRUCK, CONFLICT CALLED EVOLUTION and DEADLYMAN are all excellent powering tracks that bring back memories of the better days of HELLOWEEN and BLIND GUARDIAN, and while you can still hear the Asian accent of vocalist KUNIHIKO SAITOH, his English is quite good and for a vast majority of the album is singing in key even when the song calls for some very high pitch squealish vocals.
The latest band I have heard from this scene is ANIBUS and this newly released album LECAGY OF HUMANITY is their debut. Comparisons to SEPULTURA are definitely warranted, but this album isn’t in the same league as say ARISE or BENEATH THE REMAINS, but shares more of a common thread with something like BESTAIL DEVESTATION complete with death metal undertones and that trademark Brazilian accent…
