This debut from Denmark’s Anoxia is one of those albums. One that made me sit and pay careful attention to every note shredded and every drum rudiment hit.
This is because it is one hell of a album.
I am not one to throw these admissions wildly, Anoxia have produced a album consisting of well crafted songs, perfectly honed musicianship, and crisp production.
Kicking off in a wall of double bass and wah wah soloing “Cold Violence” is the benchmark for the album. Lars Frederiksen’s vocals cut through with enough power and melody not to be overpowering, and the guitars and drums are in places out of this world in technical ability.
