Siege Of Power is a Death Metal supergroup having members that are or have been in Autopsy, Asphyx, Thanatos, and Hail Of Bullets. There were originally formed under a different name, First Class Elite in 2013, but they stopped for some reason then in 2017 they reformed as Siege Of Power and released their debut ‘Warning Blast’. That album had twenty tracks, so they’re not short on material. This one only has eleven but what you get is quality, not quantity.

Speeding out of the traps like a long dog ‘Force Fed Fear’ rips with Bagchus knocking the living daylights out of his skin, Baayens beast like riffs, and Reifert shredding his throat. What a start, then things go mosh mental with ‘Sinister Christians’ totally Venom-like and blasphemous with Eifert offering up a different vocal style, something that happens throughout the album. ‘Scavengers’ is a slower traditional metal gallop before we get back to the brutality on ‘Zero Containment’ which ends abruptly leading into the classic melodic death metal of ‘Ghosts Of Humanity’. We get some epic death doom on ‘As The World Crumbles’ then it’s back to the old school death metal on ‘Oblivion’. ‘Deeper Wounds’ is a huge-sounding death grind that slows into more doom before the majestic Motorhead/Venom-inspired ‘The Devils Grasp’ is an absolute banger of a track. ‘No Salvation’ is a thrash/death hybrid then the title track ends things with some more doom.

Every track is different courtesy of Reifert’s vocal changes plus the band knows their onions. They can thrash, beast, or doom at the click of a finger, and it’s all world-class. It’s all heavy and brutal, which is how it should be.

 

Score: 9/10
