Feradur – Parakosm
Other tracks like ‘Tetsuo’ focus more on speed and less on rhythm, but the band also adds more varied elements such as clean vocal work mixed with the harsh despite not being the most clear being it has an echo effect, and some rather militant drumming ¾ in that is sure to make fans nod in appreciation. The closing ‘Host Of The Nightmare’ has a little thicker sound, feeling more like a more melodic “Nightmares Made Flesh” track from Bloodbath if Peter Tägtgren has added more Hypocrisy influence to it, but while being less melodic it still hits hard and will be enjoyed by those who like heavier Amon Amarth tracks. While there aren’t too many tracks go off of, those who like Feradur’s sound would do well to check out their second album, “Legion” as it holds a more in depth look at their melodic death approach overall. The “Parakosm” EP is solid, but not a full demonstration of what Feradur of really capable of.
