Eminence - The God Of All Mistakes
It has been almost 4 years ago since I first came in touch with Brazilian metallers Eminence. I haven’t heard much more about them ever since, but I do remember liking their album, Humanology, very much back then. So I decided to look it up in the pile of promos once again and listen to it. The outcome was to be expected: I still dig this band a lot! Here’s their new album, The God Of All Mistakes.

What immediately caught my attention was the difference between the two albums regarding the focus on instruments. Where on Humanology the main focus remained at the guitar section, the focus on The God Of All Mistakes has been spread out more. Like they found a better balance between drums, guitar and bass. This is clearly noticeable in the double bass attacks – which are abundant on their previous album but not so much on their new effort.

Also the previous album seems heavier while on this new album the music has become a tad softer. Which doesn’t mean it’s all pussy-work though, ‘cause these guys still know how to rock your socks off. One might not find it all that original – at least that’s what I get from other reviews, according to those people Sepultura comes to mind a lot – but I frankly don’t give a damn.

In fact, the bands that come to mind are completely different. Musically, Eminence makes me think of DevilDriver now and then, while the vocal department sometimes resembles Randy Blythe of Lamb of God fame. Actually, the band mixes all good elements of lots of other acts to one damn fine mixture. Nothing new, but certainly worth a try. Fast metal with a dark edge to it every now and then and a good vocalist. I like!

Oh, and for those who like their metal produced by one of the better producers out there; Tue Madsen (Halford, Mnemic, Dark Tranquillity) did the job here. And a fine job, might I add.
