CONCRETE ICON – RANCID HARMONY (Review by Varg The Mighty )

Last December saw the release of Finnish Death Metal band Concrete Icon’s second album, “Rancid Harmony”, so today we shall review it.
Once you play the album, you can instantly tell it’s part of the Finnish Death Metal movement that has recently appeared to revive their 90’s sound, but this band also has some slight American and Swedish influences in their music.
The album has the right amount of melodic parts (like the amazing solo in “A Scar For Every Dream”) as to sound interesting, but to continue in the realm of Death Metal and not the one of Melodic Death Metal. It also has sometimes the slowness of Death Doom, but not so much as other Finnish acts.
They tend to play the style in its purity, but sometimes leaning minimally to one subgenre or another, and the result is exactly how Finnish Death Metal should sound.
The band’s line-up is completely unstable, but hopefully there will be enough members that composed this album by the time they record another one as to make it sound equally great.
If you enjoy Death Doom that leans more on the Death side of it, like the very first bands of the style, then you will love this album.
