is a currently unsigned 3-piece (on this release) from Sweden. This
relative newcomer bringeth "The Art of Hunting" to our fairly
untamed ears. These Swedes perform aggressive thrash metal in the
vein of Celtic Frost, Kreator & Flotsam and Jetsam!! Very choppy
and technical thrash-riffing with pretty basic percussion laid down
throughout this demo. As well are some of the best Kreator-like vocals
next to Kreator with a lot of screaming as well (not metalcore screaming,
though - most of that's just yelling garbage). I'd be hard-pressed
to imagine these guys not being signed very soon... on the contrary.
Pandemonic have the ability to be picked up by someone like Century
Media or Nuclear Blast! The music they deliver doesn't really spark
me as super-addictive or even overly interesting, but I do like it.
A lot of people into the 80's-thrash material will probably be able
to recognize where Pandemonics' influences are. I'd like to see these
guys play a metalfest in the states. That would determine moreso,
how thrash these Swedes really are... but they are nevertheless -
check 'em out.
