CHAINFIST / Scarred (2014)

CHAINFIST is a five-piece Danish metal band that originally ws formed in 2007 and consists of ex-members of Panzerchrist, Frozen Sun and Infernal Death. In September 2010, it has released their first full-length album “Black Out Sunday” which was praised by several Danish metal-sites. Since then, the band has been playing on various stages in Denmark, building up a solid live-reputation with top-marks from the critics.

Nowadays, the band is back with its second step which is entitled "Scarred". The album starts-off with the fast and furious metal dynamite of "Scars Of Time". A thunderous, yet modern metal, track that features a heavy, still melodic, riff, powerful vocal lines and strong arrangements. "1000 Ways To Bleed" recalls a modern-day Metallica while "Poison Moon" is movin' to some heavier, almost thrash, I would dare to say, paths. "Seven Minutes Of Pain" includes a really nice groove in it and "Muss Frustration" is one of the album's highlights; heavy, powerful with attitude that takes no prisoners with! The album, also, includes a nice acoustic version of "Black Rebel Noise".

All in all, CHAINFIST with "Scarred" achieved to release a solid, powerful in an old-fashioned way metal record with an up-dated and fresh sound that will be welcomed by any fan of the classic heavy metal scene.
