SEPTEKH (Sweden) “Apollonian Eyes” CD EP review


By Chiara Rizzatti

From Sweden comes “Apollonian Eyes” , the band’s latest effort death Septekh , so that makes up his fourth EP: to be an emerging ensemble seems to have consolidated a certain habit when choosing this type of format, which began in 2009. Surely Septekh attempt to test the waters before you carry out an album, but the impression is that of a reluctance to nell’affacciarsi metal scene perhaps excessive. Meanwhile give birth “Apollonian Eyes” EP containing four tracks for a total a little more than fifteen minutes. At first sight it seems to be a positive premise, when taking into account previous work that could count on a greater number of tracks and apparently even greater dose of inspiration. Preliminary considerations of this kind are literally swept away by the title track , which opens the disc with a sound full of pure violence, which are the masters anguished rhythms and scratchy guitar riffs. The scenery is complemented by the vocals of Nils Meseke, a growl that’s more like a piercing scream, but that is a perfect place in the context in which it is located. Even the last track, “Vlad Tepes” , deserves some attention: certainly does not reach the levels of brutality that characterize “Apollonian Eyes” , but is distinguished by an effective growing more and more aggressive, however much it shines a little originality. However, this more disappointing is the central part of the EP, which has no great merit than to be surrounded by “Apollonian Eyes” and “Vlad Tepes” . A smart choice by Septekh that seems to aim to open and conclude the work in the best way to undo the success of anything but memorable of the remaining tracks. “Burn It To The Ground” and “Cursing The Skies” does not involve, tend to be trivially repetitive and devoid of the momentum that would be expected, and whose Septekh have proven to be capable, although so obviously discontinuous. “Apollonian Eyes”, however, is a total EP enjoyable, that reveals several cues interesting and also highlights some improvement compared to the previous works. At this point for the Scandinavian band continue to fossilize on the mini could be counterproductive, since the potential to end a good first album and finally express the most of their actual artistic quality does not seem to miss.
