To create a great numetal album, you need the riffs, the hooks, a lot of aggression and a Mammoth heavy production to go with it.
The Sicilian band Rage of South are halfway there, they´re like a well oiled, efficient riff machine that yet never got into gear. Most often, the songs start promising but I´m waiting for the band to explode into a huge riff that never comes. Well, they rock kinda hard in "Reflection" and there are a few more moments on their first album "I see, I say, I hear" that feels ok.
But I can´t get rid of the feeling that there´s something missing.
For fans of early KoRn and 6 Gig.
