Alter Self - Seven Deadly Blessings

Alter Self
Seven Deadly Blessings
by CJ "Music God" Plain at 08 April 2013, 2:16 PM

Hailing from Greece, I had high hopes for the CD from the band ALTER SELF. The name of the CD is "Seven Deadly Blessings" and looked promising at first glance.

After listening to this a couple of times, my hopes were dashed pretty quickly. I try not to be overly harsh during a review and to at least offer some constructive criticism to help the band. Sometimes, that is very difficult to do. This is definitely one of those times.

There are so many things here that I could pick apart. The very first thing is the absolute generic style of this record. They can't decide if they want to be a Thrash band or a Death Metal band. The songs are written with horrible, growled vocals, boring guitar riffs, and heard it a billion times drumming. There is absolutely nothing original or pleasing about this album.

From the Chris Barnes meets Chuck Billy vocals to the blast beat drums to the completely out of place Funk style bass playing, this is a disaster. It's like the Wal-mart of Thrash Metal here. Hell, it's like the Dollar Tree of Metal here.

Every song sounds exactly the same, the song titles are some of the most cliché I've seen this year, and as stated, the bass playing, while good, is completely out of its element.

I can't in good conscience recommend this to anyone.
