Italian death metal scene presents different bands known all over the world like Fleshgod Apocalypse or Cadaveric Crematorium, but it has a lot of unknown or emerging bands who are working hard and looking for the success. This is our case today ‘cause I'm going to review Nightmare, the first ep from a young italian melodic death metal band form Florence Banned From Hell, released in 2012.
“Banned form Hell”'s style is a perfect mix between death metal's brutality, melodic keyboard and guitar riffs.
It begin with “Overture”,a short instrumental song who prepare us to the “symphonic brutality” of the rest of the album, and particularly to the second track “Hate”. This song's lyrics are about violence, suffering and, obviously, hate.
The third track is “Killing in cold blood”. It is about a hitman and his jobs.
The EP continues with “Gunshot”. This track speaks of a man who discover a river full of death bodies in wartimes . Then, he will be taken by some soldiers to be killed. It is the most melodic song of the EP.
“Nightmare” is the fifth and last track. This has been my favourite track of the whole EP. I liked everything of this track: his guitar rif, his keyboard solo, his bass line.
This is a very good EP, but i didn't like very much the lyrics: i found them all the same (except for the last track). In addition, the use of English isn't perfect and there are some structural mistakes.
