Two seconds of those blast beats and we can instantly discern, Southern Storm is no misnomer. From the land of Sepultura emerged another prominent force — Krisiun — their extraordinary precision and extremity can be always a tad overwhelming. These compositions are like a complex death metal alloy, intricately structured on electric blues like shredding with over-the-top intensity. Not to mention, that steady hammer of drums is daunting, receding slightly only when getting carved up into slices by piercing guitars.
Rooted firmly in Terrorizer, Grave, Immolation and Nile school of old school death – Krisiun’s craft is flawless. They reflect all the essential deathly qualities — constant and subtle shifts in flow, melodic leads and demanding riff/drum patterns. Quite like Sepultura, this band of brothers consistently push musicianship to disturbing levels of fury. With songs titles like “Slaying Steel”, “Minotaur” and “Massacre Under the Sun” – lyrics undoubtedly become that last cowing piece of this technical death storm.
