SEPTEKH (Sweden) “Apollonian Eyes” CD EP review


By Lex Ivian

Septekh is a death / thrash Swedish founded in 2008 which has so far recorded one demo and EP 3 (actually 2 EP since they released “Not quite what I had in mind” in 2009 and have emerged in 2012 on Abyss Records, remastered under the title “The Seth avalanche”). I’m talking about the little one also appeared on Abyss Records in 2013, “Apollonian eyes.”

From the outset, the album garroche in a frenetic drumming and shredding and it sets the tone for the four parts. We will have a good thrash. Guys do revolutionize anything but they make parts that are headbanger in the lounge and surely create good moshpits. The four compositions also have slight variations that make interesting listening. Thus, the first is a thrash “straight in your face” as it was in the years 1980 to 1990, the second sailing on the edge of thrash’n’roll with a very catchy chorus that will banger fists in the air , “Cursing the skies” which explores sound more death / thrash, is probably their most complex part with “stop and go” inserted in the chorus “Blastbeat” and finally the last riffs reminiscent of the old black Bathory allowing enjoy a good shredding riffs and a little more epic. Moreover, throughout the album, the voice a little “shrieké” bring the feeling of a black wave in the atmosphere Emperor or Bathory precisely. To help you discover, I send you the entire album, taken from youtube channel Abyss Records.

As I said earlier, Septekh not invent anything, but we find a way to make us a thrash EP is varied and touches on death and black. Oh, by the way, they also have a little look “gentleman of the 19th century” with beautiful damn mustache. Hell Yeah!
