Frog eating deathsters singing about greek mythology? Could that possibly work? Well, yes. It does. And it works quite well, even. With a spiteful, hateful brutal Death Metal soundscape Kronos drives it home. A good production lets the guitars cut through a fog of drums, bass and vocals like a spartan spear through persian flesh. Some tasteful solos that don’t go to close to the guitar masturbation level shines through as well.
The Hellenic Terror contains some bouncy beerdrinking moments but the songs sound largely the same, if only the variation in songs would be as the variations on the vocals.
