Album Review

Applying the whiplash head charge of the best thrash metal — which is really just '70s-vintage Status Quo/Foghat-style head-bobbing boogie revved up to double time with a few more effects pedals on the guitar — to the basic tropes of Scandinavian death metal, including the pummeling, almost industrial rhythm section (yay!) and the growled vocals that sound like a cheesed-off Muppet (boo!), Holland's Callenish Circle manages to make something fresh out of an increasingly tiresome genre.

On the best tracks, especially the stunning "Forsaken" and "My Hate Unfolds," Callenish Circle is as powerful as any band in its style. However, whenever the tempo drops, so do the standards; tracks like the leaden and overlong "What Could Have Been..." sound like the more uninspired moments of the likes of Uriah Heep. Normally, attempts to vary the dynamics and pacing of an album are a good thing, but Callenish Circle is so good at what it does that the changeup songs actually sound out of place and irritating.
