Martyrion - Our Distopia

Label : Boersma Records | Archive under death metal / grindcore

Release type: Full-length CD

Koen W. : Martyrion is a German death metal band that releases with 'Our Dystopia' their third album. Lyrically, the spectrum of science fiction and a post-apocalyptic world is followed. So you get to hear almost seventy minutes long modern and very melodic death metal with a lot of atmospheric and almost progressive sounding elements. Musically there is played at a very high level. However, the weak link are the vocals. This almost sounds forced and feels a bit cramped on. It seems like the music and the vocals go out two different directions. This is very unfortunate because the lyrics from drummer Jannik Baur have been written very well. With another singer this album would have a whole different appearance. Since 2011 and now the band had with David Schaefer already their third singer in the ranks. This must surely be a thorny issue. Separately of the singing issue, Martyrion has put a decent album together.
