The Kandidate – “Facing the Imminent Prospect of Death”

The Kandidate – “Facing the Imminent Prospect of Death” (Napalm Records)

Totally kick ass! These Danes have been listening to huge doses of old Entombed and the result on this album is 11 tracks of hateful crossover mixing in abrasive hardcore a la early BioHazard with the death n roll of their Swedish cousins: hoarse vocals; dirty reverb guitars and shakin’ bass lines bring it all home on tracks like ‘Fucked In The Search For Life’, ‘Standing On The Cliffs Of Madness’ and ‘Let The Maggots Have It’, though the album as a whole is one baadass mutha of a moshpit! It’s really cool having bands like The Kandidate cos they simply don’t hold back and considering this is self produced by the band’s own vocalist Jacob Bredahl in his own studio (Dead Rat), “Facing the Imminent Prospect of Death” is a stupendous release! Having already won the best band in the Danish Metal Awards and played Roskilde, The Kandidate will be touring heavily this year across Europe and further afield into Russia and China no less – I’m definitely looking forward to catching them!
