FACE DOWN "The Will To Power" /Ltd. Slipcase DVD + CD/



Third full-length album by Swedish Post-Thrash/Death Metal band.
Formerly known as Machine God, latest reunited with vocalist Marco Aro (formerly of The Haunted), Face Down gets down to business with their crushing Death/Thrash ferocity, a quite heavy wall-of-sound guitar style and angry, Hardcore-ish vocals.
Comparisons to Pantera are valid, as well as fellow Swedes such as Transport League or Mary Beats Jane, though these guys are perhaps a shade heavier. For forty-three minutes flat, the band go for the jugular without any respite whatsoever, ripping and snarling their way through ten songs that aren't so much aggressive as borderline barbaric. The crusty yet bass-heavy production doesn't make proceedings any prettier either, and that's just fine, really: this triptych makes "The Will to Power" one of the heaviest, catchiest and downright nasty Thrash Metal albums.
Recorded by Jocke Skog (Clawfinger) & Joacim Carlsson at Fear and Loathing Studio, Spanga, Sweden.
Limited Edition comes with two bonus audio tracks, mini-poster, sticker (at DVD-Case edition only) and bonus-DVD (including live songs from "Sweden Rock Festival 2005", photo gallery and additional promo-material).
