V:28 : Violution

The Norwegian industrial/death metal outfit known as V:28 returns with their latest offering Violution, which is the final installment in their end of the world trilogy which began with NonAthropogenic in 2003 and continued with 2005's SoulSaviour, all released on Vendlus Records.

Over the course of the nine songs presented here the band do a marvelous job creating a cold, sterile musical landscape with their programmed beats and eerie keyboard work. The layers of harsh, mechanical sounding guitars and brutal raw death style vocals combined with the blast beat assault on a track like "Shut It Down" should give the average listener a good idea of what V:28 are all about. This track chugs along like a veritable war machine prepared to annihilate anything in its path. Much like they've done on previous releases which saw the band collaborate with members of Enslaved and Deutsch Nepal, Violution features contributions from Garm (Ulver) as well as Mike Van Portfleet from Lycia to name just a few. If you like your music heavy with plenty of variety and featuring a slightly futuristic edge to it then V:28 is certainly worth checking out.
