Murderplan - Let's Roll (CD)

Let's Roll
by Grigoris Chronis at 18 August 2008, 11:32 PM

I don't know why, but every time I see an album title like this I get the impression that the band would be no more than a bunch of CARCASS wannabes. Fortunately, MURDERPLAN are not such a band. And I also have to admit that they made a good impression to me with the nice package they sent.

The band has been active since last year and as it seems they didn't waste time and only one year after they formation they release their first ever official work, their debut album Let's Roll through the Canadian label Ascent Records. From what I found out, this band had no other releases (demos etc.) before the release of Let's Roll.

The music the band plays is a classic mixture of brutality and melodic guitar leads, which means melodic Death Metal. The ‘must' influences from AT THE GATES, old IN FLAMES and ARCH ENEMY are here and the band has done a good job absorbing them and creating a more personal sound (even though there are so many bands that play this kind of music out there that it is hard to say if one has a distinctive sound). Callmer's riffs are great, since he has combined catchy riffs with melodic leads and brutal shredding that all create a dynamic and aggressive background. Lindberg has also done a more than good job with his furious and groovy drumming leaving only Soderlund being one of the things that need some extra work in my opinion. He may have weird vocals that make him differ from the classic Death Metal vocalists, but I don't think that they fit the music.

MURDERPLAN prove that even this kind of music can produce some bands that can play some passionate and fine melodic Death Metal. I just hope that the future will hide equally pleasant surprises for us. Keep it up guys!
