Finland’s underground death metal quintet Kruor released their 3rd full length album entitled ‘Destroyers’ on March 23rd 2018.
Destroyers is an apt name seeing as the 8 track album comes at you with intense destructive force, enough to make you bow your head in respect. Filled with bone-crunching riffs, roaring vocals, hard hitting bass & drums, opener ‘Chant of the Undying’ lays the groundwork for an album that is solid through and through.
Hard-hitting numbers follow with Berserk, Chaos Supremacy and In the Midst of Desolation all delivering on the promise of unrestricted fury. The latter of the three is particularly attention-grabbing as it encourages you to open up a pit no matter where you are.
Destroyers is a rough sounding record, something that might fit the style on show but makes for an uneasy time trying to pick the more nuanced elements of a track like At the Gates of Demise. It adds quite a bit to the raw sonic power of Kruor though especially when they’re firing away with the short-ish intensity of Plague, a track that really lets the bass and drums do the work.
Destroyers grows in strength with the final couple of tracks absolutely slaying with death metal heaviness. Slaughterhouse is just a fantastic, heavy metal track while From Abhorrent Dreams to Reality is an epic.
