Combining the influences from all over the place - Melodic Black Metal, Viking Metal, Progressive Rock and Ambient since those two old friends Ivar Bjornson and Grutle Kjellson being under the influence of Immortal demo tape. Establishing their own group - Enslaved (next) to be one of the most important bands of the Norwegian Extreme Metal scene since then; this Haugesund's Metalheads proudly releasing their simple titled album Isa with the line-up consisting of Ice Dale (guitars), Cato Bekkevold (bass) and Hebrand Larsen (keyboards, mellotron, piano, hammond) presenting the trademark eerie sounds of the Northern coldest winter and blistering frozen storm ready to captured and kill anyone lost or unfortunate of being trapped in the middle of it as victims. The power of Metal Progressive on Lunar Force or Ascension to Violent Dawning bursting the essential Black Metal classic type of music - brutal, dangerous and of course artistically dark with screaming vocals on the scary high pitch and the demolishing riffs ready to tearing your head aparts in minutes but the total assembly of melodic arrangements and creative mixes really helping to create the most cranking record with the magic taste of Pagan rites and Norse historic backgrounds as well as the infamous keyboard's play - excellent for accompanying us all for the burial ceremony of the ancient North as Isa album itself giving us more recognition to be a salutation for Viking heritage or warmly could concluded to bare within the dead body to proudly stepping into the next life in Valhalla.


Tap, Twist, Snap And Deliver (Lava Records / Atlantic 1997)


Produced by David Kahne as the raising flag of the next generation of Cross-Over noise which called Modern Nu Metal by the media erupts; giving more opportunity for this Newport Beach former Funk Metal turned to the chameleon mix-max beats band taken their name from the legendary boxer Sugar Ray that role-leading by vocalist Mark McGarth, Rodney Sheppard (lead guitars), Murphy Karges (bass, backing vocals), Stan Frazier (drums, percussions) and Craig Bullock alias DJ Homicide (turntable, samples, keyboards, programming) fusing the corporated blending of hipster sounds from sick jokes, sarcasm, Heavy Metal, Hardcore, Punk-Pop, Hip Hop and Reggae to Funky-lite style into their superb collisions for the nineties and beyond Rock Music consumes. Floored must be sounded like it is created firstly for soundtracking an illegal drag-race scattered taken places around California but then we all realized that Sugar Ray intended to recording and releases Floored as a ticket to pass the tricky Nu Metal schooly tests and this album absolutely can be considered as a good breakthrough after the controversy surrounding the band's "too sexy" debut record's front cover. Go fuck yourself into speeding up chasing with highway police within RPM or Speed Home California to the more standard Modern Metal mixes on Breath, Anyone and High Anxiety or just try the hit which later becoming Sugar Ray's classic Fly on this one too.
You won't be depressed for having this cranked up loud and your dead neighbors wouldn't complaining also for listening great choice of noisy mixed music.
