Norwegians have always been guilty of unleashing depraved forms of metal, and SOUL SAVIOUR is no different. Putting a somewhat industrial spin on its garden variety garbled vocals and black metal guitar onslaught, this collection’s ambitious nature provides for a sound that mixes Fear Factory’s technological prowess with Emperor’s pure evil. Ambient when it wants to be yet able to crush your eardrums with galloping guitar lines and pummeling drum beats found on tracks like “The Purifying Flames”, V:28’s jarring juxtaposition of genres isn’t flawless and drags at times, yet creates a bleak aural atmosphere not unlike Godflesh or Neurosis.
