The Dark Epic - Claudia Ehrhardt -
The Dark Epic
(Massacre Records - 2011)
Grim Tales is One Man Army & The Undead Quartet 3rd album, it was released 2008 and in 2009 they had a line-up change on lead guitar, perhaps that's why it took the Swedish a bit longer to present The Dark Epic. I'm a bit confused, coz on the band's webspaces Jonas Blom is named while the label's biography names Mikael Lagerblad... Anyway, let's talk about the music!
After the thrash tune Devil's Harlot they present Dark Epic, another riff-based long track. As the track is almost 9 minutes long they have time to build it up. And again it's the guitar play which makes this one special. After more then 5 minutes Johan Lindstrand finally joins in, but he still gives the guitars the space and only joins in for a moment. And like they opened up they end this tune.
Then they storm off again for How I Love To Kill You, the closer. With this fast one they return to their uncompromising thrash'n'death sound.
The strong point of One Man Army & The Undead Quartet is the guitar play and their diversified sound. Well done.
