sweden's finest product

by inflames99@rediffmail.com on 10/9/2008

One of the best albums to ever emerge from the Swedish metal scene, Whoracle is arguably one of the best amalgamations of the NWOBHM and old school Death Metal, with either genre represented mightily. The highlight of the album is without question the dazzling guitar work. Excellent "crunchy" rhythm playing combined with some of the best solo's ever heard from the Swedish scene. Some fans of other Swedish Death Metal such as Arch Enemy or At The Gates may be a little disappointed because of the lack of Death Metal's trademark double-bass drumming, however the fact that the members play with such precision and passion more than makes up for it.The vocals, while being mostly unintelligible, are still extremely fitting, and remind the listener of the band's Death Metal roots. As a whole, the band performs brilliantly, and there is not a single weak track included, and the listener can feel that each song is simply bursting with power. Standout cuts include the opener Jotun, the brilliant instrumental Dialogue with the stars (which features some of the albums best playing), Gyroscope, Food for the Gods, the galloping Episode 666 and the list goes on. In Flames have successfully created a true modern masterpiece in Whoracle, their blend of Death Metal/Power Metal is so close to perfect, that it is almost impossible to say which influence is more obvious, and this is why Whoracle is truly the best example of this fusion by In Flames, or indeed any other band hailing from the Gothenberg area.
