Seriously, I know the bass isn't always the lead instrument, but even bassists need more love. As said earlier, the bass just seems to follow the guitar on the more audible parts, but I digress, as since the guitar is so stellar, the few moments it pops up, they're amazing. Near the end of "Submission" is an example. While the lyrics are not the most impressive in grammar, it's nice to see a band explore other ideas rather than the generic "I kill bitches and sluts everyday" shit.
As stated on this very page, the lyrics are essentially based on the more gruesome parts of Greek mythology, which I think is neat because actual Greek mythology was less Disney Hercules and more God of War in terms of accurate violence.
Listening to the whole album should be mandatory if you claim to like death metal. I don't care how you listen to this masterpiece, either by buying a physical copy Good luck finding one, I couldn't so I had to stream off YouTube , streaming, or downloading, legally or not. Quite the shame they broke up recently though, would have loved to see where they went after Arisen New Era , another solid album.
This reviewer does not walk the putrid halls of brutal death metal often. While I certainly enjoy the harsh sounds and corpse vapours that emanate from thrash metal's deranged, chained-in-the-basement offspring, there comes a point where the intensity becomes a bit much for me to bear. BDM's unflinching commitment to sonic murder through unmelody and sewer grunts is something I can, to an extent, respect.
It simply doesn't gel very well with someone who generally prefers to hear a degree of traditional catchiness in his music, regardless of the extremity of the sounds or the intricacy of the compositions. Thankfully though, Kronos struck a very agreeable middle ground with this here album. The ever gnashing teeth of Colossal Titan Strife 's forebears are clearly reflected in its violent onslaught of death metal, yet the level of melodic precision present hints at something more than just mere brute force.
After a few seconds of hearing flying arrows and flesh being rent, the titletrack gives us a crash course on what the album will be about through sheer blunt force trauma. The instrumentation is vicious, precise, and acrobatic. These men clearly know the way around their instruments, and that goes double for the drummer.
The man uses his entire kit to the best effect, playing with many different beats as the album rushes by, not content to simply blast away. This isn't to say that blasting isn't plentiful, because it is, but it's executed in a tasteful manner, never becoming a monotonous crutch.
However, the moments when Kronos slow down to a bone-crunching stomp shine just as much as their feeding frenzies, as shown during good chunks of "Submission" and "Opplomak". The writing is on point, taking full advantage of the expected twists and turns of death metal to provide a rich listening experience, even though the atmosphere and mood itself never feels any different than a vortex of steel and guts.
The riffs carve a bloody path the whole way through Colossal Titan Strife. No matter how brutal the percussion gets or how viciously the tremolos cut through the air, a strong sense of melody permeates almost every single moment of the runtime. Speaking of choruses, the vocals here are fantastic. Taking a page from Lord Worm's book, this guy completely forgets about things such as enunciation and clarity in favour of distilled ferocity.
He alternates between an unfathomably deep, cavernous roar and ghoulish shrieks, and both techniques are executed perfectly. The only problem is that it can become a bit tiring at times, as his cadence never varies and he's a bit loud in the mix. The production is a bit of a mixed bag, in a sense. It's appropriately loud and clear, letting every instrument reach the listener unimpeded and providing a good sense of weight to everything.
Meatless guitars and whimpy drums, these most certainly aren't. However, it's a bit too polished for the style, with a sort of Andy Sneap sheen that feels out of place. One can only wonder and drool hungrily at the thought of this music being put through a similar filter to the one that Asphyx used for Deathhammer. Just as modern and thunderous, but with a meaner crunch and much, much more grit. Torture instruments are scarier when they're a bit rusted and chipped, ya know?
While people looking for some truly rotten, pus-squirting BDM might find this to be rather tame, Kronos' sophomore is definitely recommended for those who usually feel overwhelmed by the more pestilent traits of the style.
The crushing rhythms and guttural bellows are as present as ever, but their juxtaposition with epic-sounding melodies and more accessible riffing makes for a juicy bite of death metal. The Hellenic themes touched upon by the band are also a breath of fresh air from the usual "cunt-skin eater" fare of this branch of metal, and a welcome one at that, even if they are slightly buried by the completely unintelligible growls.
If you're into music that's equally technical, melodic, and crushing, then Colossal Titan Strife was tailor-made for you. Every so often an album is released that completely changes your expectations of what to expect from metal.
Colossal Titan Strife is that album. This French quartet has unleashed an ogre on the music world and its ravaging eardrums wherever it is heard. Kronos is that rare combination of pure technical ability, creative riffing, and monstrous vocals that sets them apart from the legions of brutal death metal bands. I almost hesitate to use that adjective to describe them however. Colossal Titan Strife might just be the perfect death metal album. Amid sounds of lightening and decapitation the theme of Greek gods at war with each other starts to become clear.
Kronos is also very capable of settling into some massive grooves. Midway through the record, Kronos really begins to hit their musical stride.
With their infectious riffing, ravenous rhythms, and jaw dropping tempo changes, the middle of Colossal Titan Strife really showcases Kronos at the top of their songwriting game. Each song is chocked full of memorable passages, drum fills, and of course, guitar solos.
Guitarist Richard Chuat is a wizard on the axe and his finger fury animates every song with a different feel. In order to truly pull of their sound, Kronos need a solid rhythm section backing up the front end.
Fortunately, Europe does not seem to have a shortage of awesome death metal drummers. Mike Sako on drums and Tom Viel on bass round out this French metal machine. Their undulating patterns and the lightening fast feet of Sako will drive these tunes right into your long term memory.Kronos - Colossal Titan Strife Tracks: 01 - Mythological Bloodbath. 02 - Colossal Titan Strife. 03 - Submission. 04 - Opplomak. 05 - With Eaque Sword. 06 - Aeternum Pharaos Curse. 07 - Haterealm. 08 - Monumental Carnage. 09 - Phaeton. 10 - Kronos. 11 - .
