Torch Of War: The Principle of Cosmic Instability

While the first full length release for Germanys Torch Of War, The Principle of Cosmic Instability may appear on the surface (black and white cover art, intriguing song titles etc...) to be a top quality production, looks in this case certainly are deceiving. After one listen to this mess it's pretty apparent that the main man behind this creation, F. Nachzehrer, was a) either operating on an extremely low production budget or b) unwilling to make his music even somewhat listenable. My guess is it's probably a combination of both. So what exactly is the problem with The Principle of Cosmic Instability? Well for starters, the guitar work is not only extremely repetitious throughout; it's also mixed way up front so it drowns everything else out, making the drums and vocals practically inaudible. As for the bass, well its non existent. The guitar tone is so thin and tinny it actually makes for painful listening. Then there's the songs themselves which practically all sound the same. You can't determine where one song ends and another begins. I've probably said too much already but there just isn't anything I can really recommend about The Principle of Cosmic Instability; except to avoid it.
