Chernobitch

     
         
         
         
             
             
Mad Agony are a heavy metal band from Italy formed in 1991, recording a demo in 1992. After some line-up changes the band split and the members pursued individual projects before reforming in 2011 and releasing their debit album in 2013.    
             
The album opens with the sound effect laden intro 'Industrial Waste' before kicking off with the riff heavy 'Chernobitch'. Buzzing like a chainsaw 'Chernobitch' races at pace through some blistering guitar work and thunderous drums. 'Subconscious Fear' stomps in, very heavy with almost doom like rhythm and melodies. The mid tempo 'The Poetry Of Rage' chugs away with power and the album is now starting to sound like a mix of eighties power metal pioneers Running Wild, Gamma Ray and Accept.    
             
'Eclipse Of A Friend' opens with acoustic guitars, a soulful vocal performance and a ballad like feel as it meanders its way through acoustic moments and screaming guitar solos. 'Boundaries Of Death' rattles into life with some thumping drums and excellent guitar work as it romps its way through a number of time changes to a conclusion. 'Back In Town' is a mid tempo slab of foot tapping hard rock with some excellent guitar work and 'Presence' is a hard hitting heavy stomp.    
             
'Tribute Of Blood' increases the tempo and rattles on at pace through thunderous drums, blistering guitars and powerful vocals. The album closes with another mid tempo song, the self titled 'Mad Agony'.    
             
Overall, an album full of excellent mid and high tempo songs, numerous time changes, great guitar work and very good throaty vocals.
