Armageddon's Evolution (Candlelight Records)

By: Mike SOS

Polish death metal mongers Crionics have garnished much praise for their merging of the black and death metal genres, and for good reason, as this imperialistically imposing quartet's delivery is one of majestic terror. From the opening minutes of "Arrival of Non Parallel Aeons", which at one point, riffs out a part strikingly similar to Darth Vader's theme in Star Wars, to the thrashy breakdown found on "Final Inversion", this nine-track disc with two bonus tracks is quite reminiscent of the more successful bands in the field, like Dimmu Borgir and Old Man's Child, complete with scathing vocals and atmospheric keyboard ambiance. And of course, the obligatory corpse paint, a must for any self-respecting black or death metal troupe, is in full regalia. Radiating durable blasts of merciless metal, Armageddon's Evolution's surprising catchiness at times blends well with the band's dastardly delivery, making this disc a nice purchase for the evildoer in us all.
