Mahavatar - Fom the Sun, the Rain, the Wind, the Soil
Mahavatar is a band with a lot of different ethnical backgrounds, combining both roots from Israel and Jamaica. Although the band started already in 1999, there have been several line-ups but Mahavatar did release some demo’s and promotional material. Now, ‘From the Sun, the Rain, the Wind and the Soil’ is out, ready to make it to the bigger crowds.
 
The album starts with an incredible heavy metal guitar riff which reminds me of the better work of bands like Exodus. However, the style of the album is definitely not applicable to be mentioned by only one genre. The vocals are done by both a male and female singer, the music is a combination of thrash metal, power metal and even progressive metal, packed in a very nice production.
 
Nothing wrong with the quality of the components of the chain that is called Mahavatar, but the weakness lies within the whole setting. When the ‘BH’ is a real had knocking song, and ‘Cult’ could well be a nice gift for fans of technical stuff, I sometimes would have wanted a little more speed, a bit more power sort of saying, in order to get the vibe going. Therefore, I think it would be very hard for anyone to really identify with the music.
 
From the Sun, the Rain, the Wind and the Soil is a perfectly chosen title for this album; it has almost every aspect you can imagine to have something do with metal. But unfortunately the connection between the songs makes it hard to see this band as a whole instead of a jam session group. And that’s what the fans want when buying a cd.
