taketh - freakshow
Fear Dark

Well, well, well. This is quite the pleasant surprise, here. Okay, maybe the word “surprised” isn’t the proper word. I’ve always enjoyed the metal offerings from the European continent, and this full-length from Sweden’s Taketh is no exception whatsoever. Nice, tight, heavy and aggressive thrash / melodic death metal with scream / shriek vocals and lyrics that lament the ugliness of the consumer world and cries out for personal strength from the Creator, Freakshow is a nice solid debut album that hopefully shows the potential this band has for the future. Fans of Immortal Souls, Extol and God Dethroned should look into this one, fer sher…
