CHAIN REACTION "Cutthroat Melodies" /CD/



Second full-length album by Polish Thrash/Groove Metal band.
The aggressively entitled "Cutthroat Melodies" continues the trend of muscular Modern Metal. Influences of Machine Head and Pantera are still audible, yet the band has developed a mature sound of their own. "Cutthroat Melodies" is a splinter bomb that scatters in your system. From the crunchy riffs of "Twinge" on we hear a spirited band at work. Vocals of Barton can still be situated in the rougher areas with a Hardcore edge, yet you notice that the front man did the utmost to bring in some variegation. Especially in "Prime Integers", the influence of Pantera is obvious, but a fine guitar solo adds a zest to the tight Metal. Also the next songs continue in this tradition. Guitarists Wodzrej and Dani again regale us with loads of beautiful soloing.
Chain Reaction will get where they want to be, they have the talent and the spirit. "Cutthroat Melodies" is proof of the aural power of the Metal riff.

CHAIN REACTION "Vicious Circle" /CD/

Debut full-length album by Thrash/Heavy Metal band from Poland. Modern, powerful, aggressive, but still melodic! The album contains a nice mixture of fast guitar solo parts and melodic ones, which sometimes even remind of classical Heavy Metal. Otherwise the band is influenced by rather modern ban..
