Album Review

This Las Vegas-based band sounds about as different from their home city's other big musical export, the Killers, as is possible. Molotov Solution are a straight-up death metal outfit, combining the downtuned, distorted riffing of Swedish acts like Grave and early Entombed with the grindcore-influenced blasting of politically minded U.S. outfits like Dying Fetus and Misery Index. Like the latter two bands, Molotov Solution offers nods in the direction of political consciousness; track titles like "Rule By Secrecy," "Corpus Imperium" and "Monolithic Apparatus" define the boundaries of their lyrical vision. Of course, frontman Nick Arthur's lyrics are almost totally indecipherable without a CD booklet in hand, so message discipline is a moot point. The focus is on the music which, as produced by As I Lay Dying guitarist Tim Lambesis, is ferocious and catchy at once. A few odd noises in the background (a high-pitched squeal on "Only the Dead," for example) show that they recognize the value of putting in extra effort, but even stripped to basics, Molotov Solution's music gets the job done and more. The riffs inspire headbanging even if one is just sitting on the couch listening on headphones with cable news playing silently in the background; in a live setting, these guys will surely inspire a vicious pit.

Downtuned grooves, check. Technical drumming, check. Growling/Shrieking vocals, check. Sounds like death metal to me! Unfortunately there's no fleet-fingered solos, but all in all, it was worth the money. Best song... Monolithic Appartatus.


Solid album. Looking forward to new music from these guys. For fans of: Conducting From The Grave, Chelsea Grin and Suffokate.


This album is incredibly good, probably one of the best albums of 2009 for sure. Metal Blade knows how to get the best damn bands on earth. If you like this one, you'll love their latest album called Insurrection, but this one is my all time favorite!


Formed: January 01, 2004 in Las Vegas, NV

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '00s

A Las Vegas based death metal outfit, Molotov Solution kept the proceedings interesting by melding their death metal chops with grindcore, hardcore, and a skeptical political eye, resulting in a deal with genre label Twelve Gauge, and a debut album that was released in 2008. The band formed in the City of Sin in 2004, and quickly released an untitled demo. 2005 saw the release of an EP, The Path to Extinction, and in 2006 the band provided one half of a split release album with War from a Harlot's...
