Brazilian death metal trio Krisiun are back with their 8th studio album. The Great Execution, a 11 track masterpiece produced by not other than Andy Classen who has been their producer for many years now. The album is quite different at what Krisiun is used to do still powerful and brutal, but with more mid tempo variations on some of the songs, The album also presents a track featuring Joao Gordo of Ratos De Porao on vocals. A new vision by one of the must brutal death metal bands on the international scene today.
The Great Execution opens with The Will Potency a quite melodic track that shows the changes on the album right away, Blood Of Lions and The Great Execution are more straight forward tracks in Krisiun‘s musical tradition, brutal, fast & devastating. Descending Abomination presents itself as a more experimental track with a set of mid-tempos adjusted to the band’s style with impeccable results. The Extremist and Sword Of Orion are those kind of tracks that would pump your blood in the pit to break some skulls if they play them live
Overall. The Great Execution is a more experimental album that succeeds on showing the experience of a band like Krisiun, that can bend the rules and adapt new variations on their way to create death metal brutality. We had the great pleasure to talk with Max Kolesne drummer of Krisiun about the new album, its changes and the status of the band. This is what he told us:
