Bestial Invasion - Silent Wonders (Single Review)
Unknown Nastya (Vocals)
Metal Priest (Bass)
Evgeniy Maestro (Guitar)
Ivan Semenchuk (Drums)
Bestial Invasion from Ukraine were formed last year by the ex-bass player of VIOLENT OMEN.
The info supplied states "real old school technical thrash metal in keeping with the best traditions of MEKONG DELTA, ATHEIST, CORONER. The microphone stand is possessed by the charming Anastasia, whose voice reminds Dawn Crosby (FEAR OF GOD) or Melanie Bock (MEGACE), and it distinguishes her in favorable manner from sterile ARCH ENEMY copies, which flooded the scene recently. On the threshold of a full-length album’s release, the band makes their first appearance with a vinyl single 'Silent Wonders', whose B-side assigns MORBID SAINT’s cover version. Produced by Don Doty (ex-DARK ANGEL)."
The music on both btracks is really good, definatley does have that authentic old school feel, great raw drum sound, crushing basswork and quality riffing and solos, but the vocals? Well they really dont suit at all, maybe if she had gone for a Arch Enemy style would have fitted better, but still cant really base everything on 2 tracks will have to wait for the album.
For Fans Of: Otep, Raven, Voi Vod, Mekong Delta
