Izegrim: The Ferryman's End
Dutch melodic heavyweights hit a plateau
Those familiar with the thrash-tinged melodic death of this Dutch mob will already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from this follow-up to 2013’s hard-hitting Congress Of The Insane.
Once again, the majority of what’s on offer finds the four-piece storming through classic Carcass territory, while comparisons to Arch Enemy are inevitable. What’s less expected, though, is just how straight-up pissed off Izegrim sound on their latest record, as razor-throated vocalist and bassist Marloes Voskuil roars through opener White Wall, and the razor-sharp riffing and machine-gun rhythm section tear the very spine from the likes of Time To Run.
