Review society of the rotten

Posted by Clemens Schaap ZwareMetalen in November, 2014



 

The second review we have received from our EP Society of the Rotten:

Ik kan me voorstellen dat je je regelmatig kapot verveelt wanneer je als jongere opgroeit in een klein dorp in het zuiden van het land. Vaak blijft er dan weinig anders over dan je vertier in de muziek zoeken. Gelukkig voor ons hebben deze jongens zich niet gewend tot de plaatselijke fanfare, maar zijn ze zelf een band begonnen.

Remorse heet het gezelschap en er wordt een furieuze, groovende mix van thrash met deathmetal invloeden gespeeld. Denk aan een mix van Exodus met Pantera en een scheutje Entombed en je komt in de buurt. De vijf nummers klinken spontaan, zitten lekker in elkaar en zijn goed uitgewerkt. De zanglijnen zouden iets meer variatie in zich kunnen hebben, nu wordt het tegen het einde wat saai. Luistertip is Lost Cause vanwege die heerlijke openingsriff.

Society Of The Rotten is een leuke eerste kennismaking met deze band die wel naar meer smaakt. Hiermee kunnen ze de planken op, werken aan naamsbekendheid, de nummers hier en daar wat bijschaven en over een jaartje of wat de opvolger van het debuut opnemen. Dat gaat wel goed komen.

The first review we have received from our EP Society of the Rotten:

Remorse from Holland brings you death thrash since 2005. There first demo saw the light in 2006. 2008 gave birth to their first EP followed by a full length in 2011. This is their newest release “Society of the Rotten” EP. Five tracks of well executed groovy death thrash. The guitar riffs are very heavy and reminds me of the heaviness of BLS. The riffs are technical but also very typical nineties metal riffs. The drums are straight in your face and filled with groove and double bass. The vocals are light grunts that are well listenable and understandable (at Least if you try haha). The only thing that I personal miss is a bit more variety. The production of this EP is also straight in your face and very heavy. The best song on this album for me has to be the fifth song that reminds me a lot of slayer but then more heavy hahaha. All though this is just an EP it is well worth every penny!

Review Nu of Nooit

Posted by Remorse on February 16, 2012

Trashmetal oude stijl is de laatste jaren aan een ware revival bezig. Oude rotten komen weer bij elkaar of maken nieuwe albums en jonge honden staan paraat. Ook Remorse behoort tot deze laatste categorie. En dan toch een staaltje trashmetal neerzetten waar Sepultura, Slayer en de oude Metallica het voor op een akkoordje zouden gooien. Toegegeven, de bandnaam, songteksten, en de voorliefde voor het oude metaal maken de band niet bepaald vooruitstrevend. Zodra de band begint te spelen kunnen we dit euvel meteen overboord gooien. Met een arsenaal aan uptempo metalriffs en effectieve tempowisselingen bewijst Remorse dat de oude stijl van thrashmetal nog steeds relevant kan zijn in de 21ste eeuw. Ook de rauwhese stem van de zanger is overdonderend begin jaren ’80. Hoewel een enkeling zich uiteraard afvraagt wat de toegevoegde waarde is van zo'n heropwaardering van het verleden, lijkt het logischer om zich gewoon over te geven aan het geheel. Want deze aanstekelijke ‘old school’ thrashbommen, laat menig toeschouwer met plezier terugblikken op de goeie oude tijd. Naarmate het optreden vordert wordt wel duidelijk dat de nummers nog niet bijzonder memorabel of afwisselend zijn. Dat er flink wat (technisch) potentieel in de groep huist, staat buiten kijf. (GS)
