Alltheniko - Back in 2066 (Three Head Mutant Chronicles)

Back in 2066 (Three Head Mutant Chronicles)
by Michael "MettleAngel" Francisco at 24 December 2012, 5:01 PM

Those unchained Oldenican Italians ALLTHENIKO have returned with another Metal devasterpiece just over a year after the release of the massive “Millenium Re-Burn”. If you are not familiar with the thunder and steel that this army of nerds delivers, think: AXEVYPER, HIBRIA, and HELLISH WAR.

They are now signed to Pure Steel Records and the new conceptual album delves into some celestial rough ride through the stars which makes no sense to me. However, the musical expanse is so fast, fulminating, and fun, that I never find myself losing interest. I am often reminded of what SCANNER did with “Hyperspace”, even if that Teutonic triumph was well-executed.

Vocalist Dave Nightfight has a spectral tone similar to Peavey of RAGE. Highway star-studded guitarist Joe Boneshaker rattles and rolls with some definitive shred technique, and re-burns with the best.  Luke the Idol's billingsgate and drum banter abolishes. With the type of anthems these space truckin' pirates of penance create, I am often reminded of the amusing band ARTHEMIS.

The rapacious “Ticket For the Fireball” which follows a majestic intro sees the “Mutant Chronicles” unfolding fondly. This is followed by the ironic “Will The Night”, and the rockin' “Dance of Mutant Night“. The inner-self “Struggle To The Sunset” is a bit bland, but the environmental overtones of this and the main event - “Horizon” will hopefully lead you to read between the lies.

The more epic “New Worlds Hero” and “Riders To Ravens” claw at the mind, while the inglorious “Bastard Rabbles” with its wrecking crude riffs and band of misfit melodies seems set to sail, raging and roaming through the infinite galaxy of terror.As these Lunar sea tyrants continue on their endless escapade through time and space, they finally reach the year “2066”.

Finally, once they return to their future word “Back From the Other Side” elucidates that the sadistic sojourn was not in vain. All this proves that even after a decade, ALLTHENIKO are willing to feel no more fear, and still Thrash around.
