Need - The Wisdom Machine (CD)

The Wisdom Machine

At last! The debut album of this incredible band is finally released! From the moment I listened to and reviewed some stuff they have released I was eager to come across their first full-length work. And here I am reviewing this album. I have reviewed everything they have released and fuck yeah they are one of the greatest Greek Metal bands! Read and enjoy…
I consider writing bio stuff about this band again is a bit meaningless. The only thing that has to be said is the replacement of Nikonas Tzifas with the new drum smasher, Pete, and I should also add that Kostas Theodorou left the band. The serious and (in my humble opinion) incredible work Need have done until now, made Burning Star offer them a contract they could not refuse. So, after signing the contract, Need are here releasing their first full-length work. Let's see what they have to say…
The same sound as their previous work, Promo 2006. Much Stoner elements, Progressive breaks, Nu Metal style catchy riffs and their more than obvious love towards Metallica perfectly describe what these guys produce. You got it right. We are talking about a band that plays modern Metal that cannot be categorized. Don't try to put any tag on their music; you will just get tired of trying! Raw production that makes the Stoner catchy feeling be more obvious, low tuned guitars and smashing drum parts that make you want to headbang until the CD is over! While listening to the album, I also sensed some influences from A Perfect Circle. Riffs inspired by the way that the legendary Dimebag (R.I.P.) shown and Sepultura style vocals combined with their modern approach of music form a great mixture of old and new (not Nu) styles of Metal. These guys do not put limits on their musical orientations and that's what makes them special and different. Even though you can easily understand which their influences are, you can easily see that this band has its own identity. Their sound is unique and that's what is missing a lot in today's Metal scene.
There is nothing more I have to add. You just have to buy this album and see for yourselves that these guys are here to stay. Congratulations to this hard working band. I wish them only the best!
