Ageless Venomous

Ageless Venomous
(Century Media - 2002)

I knew what to expect when I put the new Krisiun album Ageless Venomous in my CD player, coz their debut hadn't made me happy. Not my cup of tea. What came after the debut I never listened to. But now all pre-judgement have to be forgotten, just listening to the music. But this is worse then I expected it. For people who into more melodic stuff of this genre, I can't recommend this, even if the intro gave some hope... Then Perpetuation. A hyperspeed death metal attack. It seems that the Brazilians are in best shape and bring us a blast of brutal and fast death metal. No break for the listener. If you like it hard and fast, try this brutal, extreme piece of music. Anyway, the precision and the skills of the Brazilians are commendable.

Conquerors Of Armageddon

Conquerors Of Armageddon
(Century Media - 2000)

Brasilians extreme death metal band Krisiun is back with Conquerors Of Armageddon. The trio is around for about 10 years and released 2 demos and a self-financed mini-album in the early 90's. Influenced by Slayer, Venom and Morbid Angel the band developed their own style. In 1996 their debut album Black Force Domain was released and soon the three-piece got the chance to play live in Europe, USA and as headliners in South America!
On their 3rd album the compatriots of Sepul­tura tries to play even faster than before, but always show their technical skills. Produced by Andy Classen (ex-Holy Moses; produced also Rotting Christ) the band got a powerful sound. The growls of Alex Camargo are really mean and weird, guitarist Moyses Kolesne tries to break all limits and drummer Max Kolesne builds the playground for the death metal massacre. Welcome to armageddon!
