NEAERA
FORGING THE ECLIPSE
METAL BLADE

German melodic death metal merchants Neaera ardently follow the genre template on their 12-track offering FORGING THE ECLISPE. This quintet’s sturdy yet repetitive execution of death metal and metalcore does boast a brash vocal delivery (“Arise Black Vengeance”) that renders flashes when this disc stands out amongst the works of their peers (“Tyranny of Want”), but overall the redundancy in these songs is a bit too derivative to consider this album anything but a by the book modern extreme metal affair. If you enjoy the work of bands such as Heaven Shall Burn (who these fellow countrymen sound a lot like), As I Lay Dying, and Caliban, then this latest release should be something worth checking out.
