FAUST (Italy) “From Glory to Infinity” DIGI CD review

This album is one of the most recent because it was released in October ’09 and there’s no doubt it is one of the best albums I’ve heard lately. Faust is an Italian band that executes death metal with high levels of evolution where every detail is carefully treated. Faust was formed in 1992 by Aleister (guitar/voice), who is the leader and founder of the band and also played in Ancient (Nor). I’m sure that this is the best release of the band so far.

Fast death metal is mixed very well regarding technique, melody and brutality, and as a result of this we have tracks where the riffs are intense and macabre with some acoustic parts and both guitars doing a great job, creating an original and versatile sound that doesn’t deserve any comparison because there are no similar styles and sounds. The Faust style demonstrates that the influences are left aside to create a masterpiece with unpredictable sounds. They are good musicians and I don’t doubt that besides death metal, they were inspired by known virtuous guitar players as well.

From Glory To Infinity offers us nine songs beginning with Purple Children, giving us the best overture of this cd. Here is the notable line Faust is into because it has an intense beginning and fast passages with an obscure ambiance. There’s an instrumental song here as well that is in fact a kind of duel among the two guitar players. They also used this in the best way, finishing the cd with an instrumental outro.

The cd is professional. The album was mixed at Trident Studios where bands such as Testament, Sadus, and Exodus have worked, so you’ll get the idea about the quality of the recording. The lyrics are topics about perversions and anti-Christianity with very suggestive cover art as well as excellent artwork within the booklet. More points of quality? Ok, here plays an ex-Dimmu Borgir guitar player and Steve DiGiorgio on the bass, so let’s imagine the quality of this band. I don’t usually rate bands, but if I would it would be 9.5/10.

Faust is modern-style, old death metal that shows that there are no limits to this style.
