BURST – Origo
Picture taking the powerful assault of: Through Silver and Blood-era, Neurosis. Blending it with Refused’s Shape of Punk to Come, song writing ability. Adding touches of Snapcase like Hardcore drumming and almost Mastodon-Esc guitar parts and you have what would ideally be one of the freshest, most original Metal / Hardcore creations in a long time…. Luckily Burst is able to pull off this amalgamation of styles and have even added beautiful, ambient atmospheric passages. For example the acoustic part in: “It Comes Into View” is almost reminiscent of the works of their current touring mates, Opeth. Even the last track “Mercy Liberation” has parts that would not sound out of place on a Queens of the Stone Age CD.
Their added vocal diversity actually compliments this album and may even showcase its aggression better than Prey on Life.
ORIGO would have climbed into my Top 5 of 2005 list had it been released in North America this year. The European Release date was Oct/Nov 2005. So technically this will begin as the best official album of 06 in my eyes!!!
Favorite Songs: Sever, Slave Emotion, and Stormwielder.
5 – Stars
