Review Type: 

Beissert is one of the many German metal bands that seem to exist to put out angry sounding records that show a lot of brainless stomping furious energy. What holds me back on this album is that there is a sense of exhaustion that builds as the album wears on. The hoarse, screamo-throated metalcore vocals rumble tales of war and destruction, politics and religious sects are delivered sans emotion or melody. It's all pretty standard stuff that's been done before, and done better. From opening riff of "Thy chthonic cathedral" to closing number "Die diamanten tore der hoelle”", Beissert seem destined to run around in circles with their mediocre performance, not to mention the unoriginal approach and styling of their music.

There isn't a whole lot here that personally appeals to me. I get the feeling that fans of the genre (Faith No More, Pantera, Soilwork, Scar Symmetry…) might get a kick out of this record, might ad.
