Marcel H. : The logo makes me suspect I am dealing with a brutal modern deathcore or death metal band. Luckily, for me, that is not what Concrete Icon is. They do have to do with death metal but just nothing modern, brutal or core. The Finnish foursome delivers old school death with quite a bit of doom in it on ‘Perennial Anguish’. The sort of death metal which makes Marcel H. get a hard-on. Original it totally is not, but it is damn scrumptious. All songs pummel in mid tempo and from time to time shift down a gear to fully employ the steamroller. All of this is accompanied with a nice grunt. People who enjoy old-fashioned slow blunt force death metal, know what to do.
