A fact: Do not expect the unexpected. This is technical Death Metal – at its best.
Another fact: On their four-song EP "The Dystopian Tide" combo Ravage Machinery serves it in a very classical, very cold way. And they do well. Here's no need for modern influences or progressive innovations. Neither warm emotions nor a glimmer of hope can be found in Ravage Machinery's music. With razor-sharp guitar riffing, technical Metal drumming (including blast beats) and shouter Jukka Haarala's dark grunting the guys create a great cold atmosphere – pictures of a distorted world without any hope for rescue comes to my mind.
"March of the Consumed" is one of the best Death Metal songs I've heard in years – with a dark cold atmosphere, guitar melodies full of loneliness and a catchy "sing-along" refrain. And suddenly the great Samael comes to my mind. Expect the unexpected.
8,5 / 10
