SEPTEKH (Sweden) “Apollonian Eyes” CD EP review

by Destructive Music

By LUKE HAYHURST

I’m a big fan of Septekh’s last release entitled “The Seth Avalanche”. Tracks like “Fuckslut From Hell” and “Eating The Maneater” tend to stay around in your memory. The bands new EP is entitled “Apollonian Eyes” and is out through Chaos Records. Four tracks that open with title song “Apollonian Eyes”, Septekh waste no time in resuming their fast aggressive pace, sleaze ridden riffs and frantic almost shambolic style. If anything on this record the band have lost some of their previous groove, opting for a solidly violent and venomous approach, at least when compared to their previous release. I’d also say that the death metal aspect is far more pronounced on “Apollonian Eyes”.

With all that being said when a brief moments kicks in where Septekh slow down the pace the groove returns in full force and as with previous material they can be unbelievably catchy. destruction seems to be on their mind though as “Burn it to the ground” would appear to give testimony too, this rampaging assault of a song showing no mercy as it bludgeons forward but also features some excellent prominent bass sections, awe inspiring guitar solos and a bouncy, catchy flow throughout. Funnily enough i listened to this EP a few weeks ago and didn’t like it, maybe I was in a funny mood because on giving it a second spin it is the same old Septekh that I love, maybe a little more venomous than before but they are still there, sleazy, groovy and hostile! You have to love the Swedes!
