Revelations In Alchemy - Lars Bjørn - 3 stars

Revelations In Alchemy

Revelations In Alchemy
(Bloodharvest Records - 2014)

This band has exists since 2009, and also been active with a small 300 copy demo, Boiled To Death. The step forward consist of a debut full-length album, okay 7 songs, but their first real try to make a breakthrough. I fail to see the deeper quality in their music, slow and boring death metal mostly, and their first song, The Arrival, is poisoned by a strange intro of pouring rain as if to create a ghostly atmosphere, but an atmosphere of what?
Slow death metal without many creative ideas is what the American band has prepared. Only the title track Revelations In Alchemy has some attacking determination into the music. I hope that they can increase the quality of their musical ideas, otherwise it's not looking too good.
