Enter My Silence - Remotecontrolled Scythe
Stellar, majestic, an absolute gem of a find. Any trouser stain that tells you that the Swedish Death Metal sound has lost its kick needs to listen to this masterpiece repeatedly and then immediately castrate himself in order to prevent reproduction. And for the losers who don’t feel that melody has any place in Death Metal, beat yourselves to death with your Akercocke records, you clueless fucks! Simple melody is the divine strategy Finland’s Enter My Silence employ throughout this magnum opus of heavy-hearted musical mastery. Every single riff, solo, breakdown, and guitar harmony is designed with a compelling, razor-sharp sadness, and the use of dynamics is spine-chilling. Whether it be the swirling riffs of “Six Nothing,” the all-out hopelessness of “Irrelevant,” the pit-inducing start/stop precision of “Loss of the Leading One,” or the intoxicatingly euphoric chorus of the album’s power closer, “Mindfill Effect,” this album crushes non-stop. Oh, and the vocals? The perfect tormented scream with just the right touch of depth. This gets my undisputed vote for the best Metal record of 2001. I think that pretty much sums up how I feel.
