ARKHAN “Primal”

(Monkey Records )
This Swiss band is new to me yet they are on their third album starting with 2004’s “Dead End”. Swiss metal isn’t the one that shouts the loudest in the world of metal hence my limited knowledge of it. But I do have a couple of great Swiss metal memories (do I have to spell them out?) although those are rather old by now. This is death metal and what death metal it is. From the word go this one pulls no breaks. This is high intensity all the way through. I got a slight Swedish (I can tell Sweden from Switzerland) feeling about this. Or perhaps it’s a German feeling I got. Either way this is death metal (with a R’n’R feeling in the groove – no crappy death’n’roll though) that blasts with the best. Anders Ekdahl
