Krisiun - Southern Storm

Posted on Saturday, July 02, 2011

As revered and highly regarded as I hold Krisiun’s earlier works (namely 1997’s Black Force Domain and 1998’s Apocalyptic Revelation), to me they turned the creative corner with 2003’s Works of Carnage. This was the first time they integrated that razor sharp groove into their inhumanly fast attack. With the following year’s Bloodshed EP, they really began to hit their creative stride and started knocking at the door of their creative peak. Then with 2006’s AssassiNation they broke the door down and murdered every living thing in sight. Why am I in History Channel mode with the Krisiun timeline you ask? Well, sadly because with Southern Storm, it seems Krisiun have hit somewhat of a creative wall. Not that it’s by any means a bad album. Krisiun don’t know how to make a bad album. It’s just not as good. Not as memorable, not as dynamic, more like a slight return to their Conquerors of Armageddon / Ageless Venomous form. Fast, brutal speed and not much else. All groove elements here are pretty much delegated to the cover of Sepultura’s “Refuse/Resist,” which oddly serves as this album’s only real standout cut.
