After the glorious success of their debut album, Sanhedrin are back and they are ready to kick some serious ass.
“Meditation (All My Gods Are Gone),” is an ode to the chaos and confusion within the world. The vocals reflect this perfectly, moving in and out with perfection. The instrumentation is flawless. “Wind On The Storm,” has that seventies gallop to it, evoking images of Iron Maiden and some of the legendary bands of yesteryear. There is something to be said for the riffs that dance and weave a tale to the vocals. “Blood From A Stone,” a furious onslaught of riffs and carnage never quite hiding where it is going, but never quite revealing it either. “The Poisoner,” a slow moving tempest, filled with the sort of riffs and melodies that show how epic this song is. In the right environment, this song would be a sure fire live favourite.
“The Getaway,” another brutal onslaught, with some ferocious and on point riffs, driving the day as the vocals weave in and out. “For The Wicked,” classic sludge metal, weaving and traipsing around the ground and the audio. “Saints and Sinners,” is another song that brings that classic heavy metal spirit to the fore. A tale as old as time about hypocrisy. Weaved into being through some interesting melodies. “In From The Outside,” slow build with chaotic riffs and snarling vocal ranges.
The album is out on 22nd February via Cruz del Sur Music.
