DAVIDIAN “Our Fear Is Their Force”

“Our Fear Is Their Force”
The first reference I made was Machine Head when I saw the band’s name. Then I remember that cult that was at a stand-off with the FBI many years ago, was it in Waco, Texas? When I started to listen to the music I was immediately struck by how much they reminded me of different bands but none particular. This is like an amalgamation of 30 years of thrash metal. From Kreator to, well Machine Head really. At first I was majorly disappointed. Don’t know why but I somehow had my hopes up for some really good thrash. Once I got my head round it I realised that this isn’t as bad as I first thought. Davidian have some pretty good grooves going for them. OK, the vocals are more death metal and the blast beats might set you wrong but the music is pretty cool mid tempo thrash. Or is it? I’m kinda starting to doubt my ears. At times it does remind me of The Haunted in their heavier moments. But then I get a strong death metal feeling. Gotta consult my books on this one. In the meantime I’ll enjoy it for what it is; a good metal album. Anders Ekdahl
