Armistice - Roots Of Evil
From Germany a promo from the band Armistice has reached our office. Itís the second full length offering of this band, and itís entitled Roots Of Evil. Letís see what theyíre all about.
 
Armistice plays a combination of speed and thrash metal with an old-school touch to it. Think of bands like Exodus, Slayer, Metallica and Sepultura. Also I hear some plain old-school eighties rock in the music. A very typical German band obviously.
 
Mediocrity reigns supreme on this record. Or something below mediocre. Thatís all I hear. The riffs that kind of appeal to me immediately remind me of a riff of the bands mentioned above, which bothers me quite a lot. Normally one would say that itís better to steal something good than to create something bad, but in this case I disagree with this statement. The monotonous hoarse vocals donít impress either, as do the solos.
 
So to conclude this story, since Armisticeís inception in 1992 theyíve not really accomplished anything and this record (dating from 2005) wonít change a thing about this. Theyíre creating music that every metalhead has heard over a thousand times, and they donít do it in an impressive or innovative way, which means they end up in the oblivion that is mediocre heavy metal music. Too bad.
