(Self – released)
2012. CD – heavy metal – USA

CITADEL BESIEGED – “Creation_Damnation”Adrian Jeffreys and Tim Hall are in the saddle again, with its second offering released in 2 years, entitled “Creation/Damnation”. USA fellows has introduced themselves through 11 tracks in similiar way, like the case was with their previous album. We can find here and there raw and strong metal, influental by the 80′s period as well, with some other additional traces taken from various metal genres too. A production is clear and well-define from first to last song, and one reckognizeble atmosphere dominates through complete album materials. Some of the songs also posses so call narrative approach, followed by certain playings and clear vocalization too. A closing track “Sirens”, is a recomandable one for repeatable listenings.


Tokom perioda od dve godine, Adrian Jeffreys i Tom Hall su objavili u sopstvenoj režiji dva albuma, a aktuelno ostvarenje zove se “Creation/Damnation”. Ovaj dvojac koji se odaziva imenom Citadel Besieged predstavio se sa 11 songova, koji su urađeni u gotovo preslikanom maniru, kao što je slučaj bio i sa njihovim prethodnim albumom. Influentni su classic metal pristupom, i to onim iz 80-ih godina, ali svoj zvuk baziraju na vrlo oštrim i sirovim rifovima, isto tako postavljenim vokalima, kao i slično realizovanim pratećim elementima. Produkcija je jasna i direktna, aranžmani su jednosmerni, ali forma možemo to nazvati četvoro minutnog metal songa nije “narušena”.

USA tandem jasno sledi svoj put, a preporuka za ponovljena preslušavanja odnosi se na završni song “Sirens”, po mom mišljenju ubedljiviji deo kompletnog materijala.
