SWK - "Connection"
We have an Italian group to
deal with, over here, which has escaped from the fashion of this country
to export power metal bands. SKW is the abbreviation of the name SKYWALKER
which they have changed with the release of their first work, in order
to express in a better way the violent technological and powerful band
they have. As far as the group itself is concerned, imagine something
stronger than Metallica and Monster Magnet and much more waker than
Pantera. They play with sharp riffs, aggressive enough, technical with
a very few tribal elements, with many alterations, with an enforced
bass and nightmarish solos!
Oasis in this CD of these 12 songs is "MY CURE" ! Top! Lyricwise, they are not waving somewhere specifically, but mainly in up-to-date issues. In the section of production they have done a very good work and everything sounds right and, every element in its role. Connection, as a work itself, isn't something bad, but you must really like this kind of music in order to invest on it!
Fans of Monster Magnet and
Fear Factory, attack this one! The rest, I believe, we could refrain
from it without having a psychological cost ;)
