Tristwood: The Delphic Doctrine

It's not going to win any awards for originality, but the latest release from Austria's Tristwood ,The Delphic Doctrine, is a non-stop brutal assault of black & death metal, mixed in with plenty of industrial elements like samples, keyboards, and programmed drums. I'm all for keyboards in death metal music, and when they are used here well, as on "Chronos" and the symphonic title track, things really work out. Much of the CD is like Behemoth on speed with a techno/industrial slant, and that's all fine and dandy, but the electronic drums just sound out of place amidst all the pummeling chaos. Vocally, Axumis is just plain brutal, and the guitar crunch of Jegger and Neru pound with merciless precision. My suggestion is get a real drummer, keep everything else as is (same for maybe add a little variety to their music-slow down every so often guys) and take this concept to the next level.
