In 2011, Logical Terror released their debut album Almost Human with great reception from critics all over the world, as well as being mentioned in magazines like Metal Hammer and Rock Hard as one of the best up-and-comers. For their sophomore effort Ashes Of Fate, they decided to feature the talents of Jon Howard of Threat Signal and Bjorn “Speed” Strid of Swedish melodic death metal veterans Soilwork.
Right off the bat, you begin the headbanging with the thrash-sounding “Ten Thousand Falls” with its pulse-pounding double bass and dazzling riffs. This song introduces what you are going to get yourself into really well. Other songs like “The World Was Mine”, “Nowhere To Nowhere”, and the thrashy title track “Ashes of Fate” will instantly make you headbang. Now as much as I like heavy thrash songs, I really appreciate bands that also do melodic songs very well.
Vocalists Emiliano and Julius really show their vocal chops on “Shattered Crown” which is my personal favourite. It takes a step back from the thrashing of the first three songs and slows it down with epic vocals and majestic riffs. They keep this trend going with “Sleep Well the Darkest Night” and “Coming Undone”, so if you like more melodic songs, these songs are for you.
The best thing about Ashes Of Fate is this album does not stick to one genre. There is something here for every kind of metal fan and it blends them all together very well. From complex solos and a violent bass to amazing riffs with twin vocals, this album has proved that it is a must have for any metal fan’s collection.
