WARD, THE - Part of Humanity - CD - Metal Scrap Records - 2015

Wanna be impressed by something from Moldova? Nationality, in metal, can mean all or it can mean nothing. The fact that this band is from a less-well known country and that it will probably stay in the underground for that same reason, are a nice bonus. You can get a CD by a band nobody has heard about and have your own little treasure. Or just impress everyone else by playing it to them.

Part of Humanity is explosive. Powerful, bombastic, massive. It is swirling, playful (in a sadistic way) and gloomy - all at the same time. Think about Septicflesh combined with Dimmu Borgir's Spiritual Black Dimensions keyboards, Crematory atmosphere and a bit of industrial. The ideas aren't something you haven't heard before, but The Ward delivers them with such confidence that you will keep wondering who this band is, why and how they are doing this, and how come you haven't heard of them before. Well, you have, right now. If you need to hear some crushing guitars, merciless machinery blast beats, properly majestic keyboards, actually enjoyable growls and an overwhelming atmosphere of Armageddon, look no further. (8/10)
