KRISIUN:
THE GREAT EXECUTION

Review by: Metal Mom

We have waited 3 longs years for these 3 Brazilian death metal brothers to give us a new CD. If you are ready for it, they have now released their newest brutal assault.

In 1990 KRISIUN was formed by 3 brothers - Alex Camargo (vocals/bass) Alex also uses his mothers maiden name, Moyses Kolesne (guitar) and on drums is Max Kolesne. Since forming the group, they have recorded 2 demos, Evil Age(1991), Curse of the Evil One(1992), a self-released (EP) titled Unmerciful Order in 1993. After signing with Dynamo Records (a Brazilian label), Krisiun released the debut full-length Black Force Domain in 1995, followed by Apocalyptic Revelation, in 1998. They signed with major label Century Media in 1999, releasing a further 7 studio albums. And now they are giving us what I think is one of their best yet, an album that you will listen to the whole way through, its name you ask …“The Great Execution“.

 

KRISIUN have toured North America / South America and Europe, and have been influenced by the likes of Sodom, Kreator, Morbid Angel and Slayer. So its obvious where some of their sound originates from. Don’t get me wrong, they are their own band.

This studio album with the 11 tracks, is their 8th, and it was produced by Andy Classen at the Stage One Studio in Borgentreich , Germany. The cover artwork was done by Japanese artist Toshihiro Egawa.

This for sure is Krisiun trademark, high speed death metal with heavily increased amounts of diversity. This album is well engineered, with extreme tempos, some rawness to the sound. The Great Execution has a deeper low end, with some throbbing drums, searing heavy riffs. Lets not forget the brutal gruff vocals that compliment the whole album. With all that, they have created the sound and the vibe they were looking for, a distinctive sound, one that is shattering boundaries once again. And after saying that, I now understand why, they are one of the most eminent extreme death metal bands in the world.

I think you can tell that I really enjoyed this album “The Great Execution”, its one that you will not tire off, an album that has no filler, and one that you definitely want to have in your collection
