Siege Column - Inferno Deathpassion

Siege Column
Inferno Deathpassion

Siege Column release their debut album after the demo “Nocturnal Attack Formation...” in 2016. They produced a split in 2016 called “New Jersey Metal Attack Vol. 1” which Joe represented all the bands (MASSIVE RETALIATION / SIEGE COLUMN / JAWS OF HADES / NEFARIOUS CABAL / DSS). A demo in 2016 called “Secret Forces of the Pentagram” was also released Independently.  2017 saw a split called “New Jersey Metal Attack Vol. 2” with Joe the main man sharing the CD with bands: MASSIVE RETALIATION / SIEGE COLUMN / DSS / ALTAR OF GORE / CONQUEST MAGUS). That Split has track #7 and the title from this album “Inferno Deathpassion”

Agonized Corpse” kicks the album off with a fast melodic pace, matching the intense growl and mix of vocals from the two band members, each bringing their own style to the sound. Both also show their skills on the instruments. It’s a fast Death Metal pace that also has a modern intro that builds up the tempo. This is Modern Death Metal. The guitar pace is something you’d expect to hear BEHEMOTH belt out in style. The raw vocals build up without overshadowing the melody and overall sound of the track, this is a great start.

Hellspeed” is not slowing down from where “Agonized Corpse” left us wanting more. The intense beat is thick and works very well to gel every aspect together. The dark ambience builds up with the distorted vocals shouting out. It’s not a long song but it ticks the boxes of what you want to hear. The tempo is balanced well in the opening tracks without pushing too far to try something new.

Penetrator” has an opener that any Death Metal band would be proud of; there is a distinct Thrash crossover in the rhythm, but this works so well. SLAYER have similar sounds to build up their songs. The deathgrowl helps to balance the slow instrumental melody as it reduces in pace after the intro. The rest of the song does mellow out a little but not enough for you to switch off

Siege Column” is frantic once more with a short outburst as an intro, the vocals are more upbeat here and it works well with the tempo all round. This is a mash up of all the great aspects we have heard so far, and it’s a great cocktail. The guys show their skills once, they run off each other with the skill set and experience of veterans.

A Black Metal-esq eerie piano intro is how “Sathanas Is Near” greets us. The song contains explosive solos that are heavily fluent in thrash crossover. The vocals are more growl, which allows the concentration to go onto the instruments. The whole song feels dark, like a storm with flickers of lightening in the guitars, it’s beautiful. The drums meeting the guitar is pulsating throughout and works perfectly.
