Eldritch: Neighbourhell

Aggression and progression collide on Neighbourhell, as the members of Italy's Eldritch pick up where they left off with 2004's Portrait of the Abyss Within. Although this isn't exactly the kind of death/thrash metal you'd expect, considering the album title and cover, Neighbourhell is heavy as ... well, hell -- not too mention mindblowingly melodic and ruthlessly relentless. Breathless blitzkriegs like "Still Screamin," "Bless Me Now" and "Come to Life" set the pace for much of the album, while the verses on "Save Me" borrow from the Beastie Boys, and "Standing Still" morphs from riff-heavy power metal into a mid-tempo, arena-rock chorus. The ballad "Zero Man," coming two-thirds of the way into the album, provides a much-needed breather and proves that Eldritch can slow things down just as effectively as it speeds 'em up. In short, if Metallica, Queensryche, Annihilator, Pantera and maybe Angra got together in some alternate fantasy universe and made a record, it might sound something like this.

Apparently, the limited-edition digipak comes with a video clip for "Save Me" and a cover of Faith No More's "From Out of Nowhere."
