Lost In Life / Demo 1998
(c)1998 Andrew Staehling
Review by Neil St.Laurent
Thanks to the band for the CD
Soulscar is back again this issue with another 3 song installment of
Andrew's brand of death metal.
Although the drums are programmed, the simplified beats do not detract
from the music, and indeed Andrew has done quite a good job this time
on the programming. As expected however, this music is about the
driving guitar sound, which presents a soundscape of pleasant death
metal. The guitar work has flare to it; though vibrant and rich
unto its own, there is a lot of effort in strength this time and
music doesn't just rely on the guitar.
Making me quite happy for this demo are the reduced and improved
vocal contributions but for the most part this demo is instrumental in
For an independant production and a demo, this recording again shows
Andrew to be a very talented musician who if can ever form a complete
band and get an opportunity for better production will likely produce
an incredible death metal album.
