Ramon : Last summer the Turkish Pitch Black Process played with Megadeth and immediately bassist David Ellefson jumped on top of them to sign them to his EMP label. So imagine how many support acts could have had the same privilege if he had launched it earlier. The band plays a very modest rock based kind of death metal, with a lot of clean vocals. The band was founded way back in 1999 as Affliction and with this ‘Derin’ it is their second ever record under this name.
They play a particularly matured and well taken care of metal variation, which is nice, but at the same time I must admit that it takes me quite some effort to stay focused. It simply is not interesting enough, not as a collective, nor on an individual level. That being said, as such it is not bad what they do and they deliver a nicely produced record. It just is not exciting and too civilised. Toe ah his own, I’d say. Let me add that I think it is wonderful that a band from a far less obvious soil get an opportunity like this.
