PENTAMENTAL


"Harm and Harmony" (Subternal; 2005)

Reviewed by Snidermann

When musical talent, songwriting ability and the drive to do something special is put together with metal music, the outcome can be explosive. Pentamental's "Harm and Harmony" exhibit a unique talent to put together a truly remarkable recording. Not only does the metal rock but there is also just a bit of techno to make the project exceptional. 

One thing of note is the way the band utilizes drums as a lead instrument, not only as a backing instrument. In addition, this recording has a hypnotic effect that cannot be ignored. 

"Harm and Harmony" truly has a one of a kind sound. Most of the music could be put to great use on film soundtracks. It is that good at communicating and that is something that should be commended. The music has a dark and sinister taste to it that makes incredibly compelling and all the more fun.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
