There's an episode of the Internet cartoon Homestar Runner in which one of the main characters develops a half-dragon, half-man character by the name of Trogdor. This pencil-drawn character terrorizes small-town peasants living in thatched-roof cottages, and effectively "burninates" them down to smoldering ashes. That's sort of Evil Chains - Battletorn - Evil Chains the cover and inside drawings of Evil Chains look like, but without the intentional humor and awesome storyline.
A fine-tooth comb applied to Battletorn 's debut record would reveal influences of hardcore punk and bare-bones no-frills speed metal mixed together in equal measure.
Ferocious 16th-note rhythm playing and machine-gun snare playing that wouldn't sound out of place on a Helmet album are the anchors here, and lead vocalist Beverly shrieks with the best of them -- but the distortion on her vocals Evil Chains - Battletorn - Evil Chains a tiresome thing after a while, and only hinders the experience of how truly powerful her delivery can be at times. At 18 tracks, Evil Chains ' brevity is similar to most albums of this ilk, and that's definitely a good thing, because any more and fatigue would set in which may explain why their live concerts range anywhere from Opening Move - Gryphon - Red Queen To Gryphon Three neighborhood of five to 20 minutes.
Perhaps a few more fills and guitar solos would relieve the monotony of the onslaught, but not likely. Metalheads and punkers alike should rejoice and Ashkabad - Anouar Brahem Trio - Astrakan Café in its energy.
