Album Review: Derision – “Ancient”
Personally I don’t like Hatebreed and I find the tracks onthis album too long, but that’s actually the only negative thing I have to say about Ancient. With my initial listen I wasn’t keen on the vocals – they’re not my kinda thing, but with the energy and momentum of Ancient It hasn’t bothered me so much in subsequent listens.
Derision find ways to set each track apart with catchy riffs and melodies and the recording quality is tight! Theres a nice cheeky solo and awesome drumming in ‘A Path Complete’ and ‘The Ancients’ is a really well written and composed track, like a hardcore Pantera! ‘Last Grain’, what a juggernaught of an intro, I dare you not to nod along to this track! The tempo changes in the tracks are fluidic and the power never stops.
This is one hell of an album, bet it’s good to drive to too!
