Eternal Deformity - Frozen Circus

For some unknown reason I got attracted by the circus aspect of this album. As soon as I found the MySpace website of these Polish metallers I had the feeling I was gonna like this stuff and judging from only one song I did. So, what’s next? Reviewing the album of course. Here’s Eternal Deformity’s Frozen Circus.

Just like a circus, this album has got a lot of different elements to bring forward. I mean, imagine all kinds of people and animals performing in the circus. Now link all those characters to a different musical element and mix the whole thing. You will soon find an interesting mixture of happy tunes and more depressing, darker elements. A wide range of musical approaches is what Frozen Circus brings us, that’s for sure!

From slow, doom-like passages to up-tempo death metal blasting to more prog-ish rhythms, it’s practically all there. Even the vocals carry a nice variety of styles. Screaming, depressing semi-clean vocals, again, plenty of diversity to enjoy! And yes, also Illusionist (what a name! you can go too far you know…) does a great job on the keys! It really creates the perfect atmosphere and it sets the perfect tone to the whole circus theme.

But there’s this small downside to the album; because no matter how much I like this CD, it still seems to lack some kind of catchiness. The songs just won’t stick in my head for that long. Which is a pity of course ‘cause it would have made the album even better. The songs are all good as individuals but they miss that final step in making it a memorable song. The addition of some slightly more catchy riffs and melodies can only attribute to a better result.

In the end I think Eternal Deformity did a very nice job on Frozen Circus. There’s enough diversity in the music when it comes to style and tempo, which keeps things interesting. A bit more catchy songs would certainly do the trick for these guys. But I think they’ll manage to get their name out there anyway! Just check it out some time!
