Do you know what's boring as shit? Generic power-influenced traditional heavy metal built entirely on overused, recycled riffs & leads.
Before you ask, yes, the music does sound as cheap as that cover artwork looks. Insert generic chugging rhythm guitars, throw on some forgettable quasi-rough-edged power metal vocals, then some guitar leads that you've heard from dozens upon dozens upon dozens of other heavy-power acts like this before. Before you continue, let it be known that this review doesn't really contain any further details of the music, because frankly, there isn't any notable details to be found.
This is usually the part where we discuss the small number of positive sides of the album which show the band in some positive light. There is none. Elegy Of Blood is so unbelievably dry, repetitive and run-of-the-mill there is an actual tangible feeling of pain derived from the boredom Marauder inflicts upon the listener. Why would someone make something this painfully generic? At what point did they say "Hey, instead of creating anything, let's just do what hundreds of other bands already do."?
This isn't music. This is a product. This is a factory-line product.
I swear to Christ, if I have to hear another second of this copy + paste rhythm guitar tracking that every one of these uncreative excuses for bands use, I'm quitting Metal Storm, and reviewing for good.
