There has been some fuss about a new record after 5 years since their last full length, hence making Nevermore one the most missed bands after This Godless Endeavor. After The Year Of The Voyager, then Loomis' and Dane's solo albums, everybody was getting more and more impatient, we could no longer wait. I was telling myself after reading some reviews that when I think about it, these circumstances could lead to a disappointment after listening to the new record; but not if you're a fan. If you like anything this band has ever done, you must see how this great entry to their discography carries all the good stuff they have been known for.

The line-up issues were never a problem for Nevermore. Jeff Loomis and Warrell Dane do all of the song writing, and with these two great musicians, a band doesn't need much to conceive a well written album. Van Williams and Jim Sheppard are old school neverheads that always deliver, on recording and on stage. Everyone's performance is nothing short of excellence. But again, this is Nevermore.

The solo projects, both Dane's and Loomis', have definitely affected the song writing, but to a short extent. It is still the melodic, epic, technical and progressive Nevermore from Dead Heart In A Dead World and Enemies Of Reality. It gets hard and heavy and it gets calm and melancholic. Every track resembles this certain song from that certain Nevermore album, but not really because the song's progression and the melodies are all so different so it keeps you listening and predicting what it's going to sound like next. There is the slow, quiet song that gets dark towards the end. The cheesy epic mid-tempo tune that we all sing along with, then there's the extremely complex, fast technical track that makes us thrash around. But best of all, it's all so well written, it ends up being compared to all their previous work and still stands out like a very well written album that every fan could spin hundreds of times without getting bored of.

The guitar work and the singing definitely stand out more than anything else. Warrell Dane continues to sing some of the most epic melodies, and his voice is as good as always, not to say cleaner and catchier. The lyrics are instantly memorable and after a couple listens you can definitely remember the choruses on most songs. Every song's story and subject forces the listener to remember the words exactly as they're extremely well sung to an extremely rich accompaniment. Jeff Loomis writes the meanest, most technical yet melodic riffs, and can play some of the best solos I've ever heard and seen in metal. His sound is instantly recognizable. The seven string Schecter always brings that heavy, odd sound because of its tuning and the extra bottom string, giving the weight to the riffs and making them very headbangable. Williams did an excellent job, of playing what he's known for: diversified, heavy, metal drumming, that works perfectly with the music the maestros go for. And the loyal Sheppard's bass can resonate through the whole thing, especially on the ballad, or the slower more melancholic song.

All in all, I can't really say if this album surpasses their previous material. This Godless Endeavor being one of the best albums of the decade, it's a tough call. But definitely another outstanding addition to a great catalog. This album is Nevermore all the way. And if you don't like this band then you have a very odd taste in metal.

Letting loose with a barrage of suitably aggressive thrash metal balanced by just the proper amount of progressively-themed shredding, Canada’s Mastery delivers an adept, commanding EP that will leave thrashsters wanting more. A brief intro and five blazing cuts form this instrumental release, which should be noted as being most interesting to fans of technical, yet melodic guitar work.

Guitarist Markus Armellini masterminded the group, recruiting fretboard burner Jeff Dormer, drummer (and producer) Keavan Roy and bass guitarist Anthony Ristovski to round out the band’s line-up. When a suitable vocalist could not be found to front the project, the quartet decided to forge ahead as sans-frontman, heading into Fifth Dimension Studios to create Lethal Legacy.

Armellini and Dormer show off an impressive array of chops right through the mini-album, whether forming spiderwebbing licks as they do on the intro cut Behold or opting for honed, galloping chugging as on Power Race and No Tomorrow. Dormer’s inspired, ripping leads are appropriately scattered amongst bushels of blazing rhythms, revealing an aura that’s quite similar to that of Death Angel and at times, Megadeth.

Roy’s smart production starts with excellent tones. From there the mix is a breeze, with each of the instruments packing a major punch. It’s obvious that a great deal of effort went into the production of these six tracks, from the sharp, slicing lead tones to the perfectly compressed drumming, everything about the overall sound quality of Lethal Legacy is top-notch.

Creating a very solid foundation for the axe-duo to expand upon, Ristovski and Roy flail away at measurably domineering undergrooves, locking in as tightly as a closed vice during the hair-whipper Numeration. Pinpoint precision accents by Roy further the technical aspect of the record, while Ristovski’s wide-open thunder provides for a suitable anchor, giving a powerful backbone from which to build upon, while including enough of his own blistering fretboard runs to be recognized as a highly competent technical player in his own right.

Sure to score big with those who appreciate the more intense aspects inherent in the Bay-area sound, Mastery delivers metal that is sometimes awe-inspiring and often all the excuse that you need to bring about a self-inflicted case of whiplash.

5.0 von 5 Sternen VAUDE Rucksack Splash, 31. August 2014
Stopfen und Drücken, Regen, Hagel und Schnee...ins Gras oder auf Kies werfen...alles gar kein Problem für diesen Rücksack.
Liegt super auf dem Rücken und nach einiger Zeit hab ich sogar das Gefühl gehabt, dass ich keinen Rucksack auf dem Rücken hab.

Viele Taschen und Modifikationen möglich.

Vllt einizges kleines Manko: Nach einer Stunde Regen wurden meine Klamotten, die ganz oben am Reißverschluss lagen ein wenig feucht.

Super robust und liegt gut in der Hand! Kann Stürze und Wasser gut ab.

Leider verblasst nach einiger Zeit das Motiv.

Alles in allem aber gut und seh passgenau.
