Germany's Attack Of The Mad Axeman are four dispossessed forest animals who
have taken up instruments to play scathingly brutal Grind like mighty Brutal
Truth or Cyness. Their four tracks whip by almost too quickly to process.
Relentless blast beats and lightning-speed riffing combine with
eco-conscious lyrics to create a volatile concoction not for the weak of
heart. The Makai from California pummel your eardrums with a barrage of
intensity that will make even the strongest listeners tremble in fear.
"Orpheus' Plight" recounts the ancient legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. The
Makai deliver a cool mixture of traditional HC-Punk like His Hero is Gone
with the heavy melodies of Baroness. The vocalist and the songstructure
reminds me a bit of the the german band Akephal, too. The powerful opening
of the song gives way to a slower and more melodic interlude, seamlessly
integrating with the subject matter of the lyrics.
