Etecc - Volition

Etecc hails from Germany and delivers a heart-pounding, mind bending sound that will leave you wanting more... so much more. Now, as an old head lover of the heavy metal genre, it takes a lot of oomph to get me to listen to a newer band for more than four minutes.. Seriously. Maybe I drank too much Kool-aid as a kid, I don't know. I wanted more form Etecc, and they gave it to me.

Etecc grabbed me from the first note and didn't let go until the last. The mix on the CD is incredible. Each instrument and the vocals mesh much like alligators and swamp water; gritty, dirty and mean.

That is awesome.

There are definitely subtle influences of other bands in some of their tracks which they pull off beautifully because it is so subtle.

'Creed On Demand' has overtones of the '… And Justice For All' era of Metallica. The song is fast and has that killer whiny guitar sound.

'Abso-Motherfuckin'-Lutely' (catchy title!) is great. It's hard, heavy and heart pounding. I could guess (and would probably be right) that when Etecc plays this song live the whole crowd goes nuts screaming 'Abso-motherfuckin'-lutely!'

Even more awesome.

And then I listened some more, and while I find it boring talking about each individual song, the best tracks on the whole CD are the last two. 'Arctic Shroud' starts out soft (even has some harmonics thrown in there) and then bam! Complete Lamb of God overtones in this song and I love it... LOVE IT.

Can it get more awesome?

Yes it can and it does. 'Voliton' is tight and well produced. So do yourself a favor and add this amazing bounty of ear blowing music by Etecc to your CD collection or your iTunes library or whatever it is you listen to your tunage on. Go on their webpage and check 'em out! Hit them up on Facebook and watch them on YouTube.

You will be pleased.
