Intervention and Transmission – List is a powerful, strong and objective album. Heavy, but without dismissing a beautiful guitar work, this record really does have it all, abundantly. With harmonies built at the pace of strident rhythms, everything collide at the sonorous contiguous universe of a furious doom relinquished at the center of a sensible musicality, that hits you in the head, like you never felt before in your life.
An amazing record, with precise guitar lines and terrific solos, List has severe wrathful components at the heart of its core. Fast riffs, pungent and eloquent, but conformed to stringent rhythms, with a powerful rhetoric of agonizing intensity, as well as severely aggressive melodies, present to the listener one of the best albums of the genre. List manages to be the perfect combination between hostile heaviness and beautiful melodies. With aggressive rhythms that doesn’t renounce the stylistic sonorous feature of graceful harmonies, this ten tracks will introduce you to the best songs ever created on the genre. And the label crustpunk here has to be taken very cautiously: Martyrdöd, besides being craved with a superb level of authenticity, carries on the wingspan of their style several different influences from other genres as well. First and foremost, List is a major masterpiece, and has to be viewed as such.
With an energetic and ubiquitous pace, being sensitive, melodic and objective at the same time, the structure of the songs on this album appear to be very hardcore induced and cemented, although their style is entrenched in a furious objectivity that makes all the harmonies went as vigorous and fast as possible, pushing the boundaries and the limits of the rhythms to the most extreme and spectacular path of rapid ferocity that anyone could ever imagine.
Even if you don’t like very much heavy and aggressive styles of music, you will certainly feel deeply enchanted by this album. Simply great, and very free at the same time, this record has created a new style of its own and has developed a new form of ferocity in music. A vigorous and out layered masterpiece, yet to be matched by anyone in the underground scene, List, by Martyrdöd, is an impeccable piece of work. No flaws, no slides, no misconceptions. In one word: a superb album. Quite an achievement.
