TME


"Worlds Collide" (Aphotic Records; 2007)

Reviewed by Christopher J. Kelter

Aphotic Records, a new label, made TME their first signed band. TME features members of Vintersorg and Fisson – which led me to believe that TME will be better than average. After listening to “Worlds Collide” it’s nice to know that I can be right once in a while even if it’s just an informed guess.

It is immediately apparent from even a casual listen to “Worlds Collide” that TME’s brand of aggressive death thrash should be appreciated by a wide variety of metal fanatics. In fact, “Worlds Collide” deftly balances the traditional death metal sound (of Europe and North America) with the melodic acumen that most European metal bands exhibit in their music.

“Worlds Collide” is very impressive upon first listen – and I am hard to impress upon first listen. But given that TME is a new band comprised of metal veterans “Worlds Collide” isn’t really a traditional debut record by a young band; this is confident, strident music created by pros. Highly recommended!

“Worlds Collide” was produced by TME and Nils Johansson.

TME is Andreas on vocals and guitar, Mattias on guitars, Johan on bass, and Benny on drums.

"Worlds Collide" (Aphotic Records; 2007)

Thunderous is a great word when describing heavy metal music and it applies perfectly TME and their release "Worlds Collide."

On "Worlds Collide," TME seems to always be in a state of upheaval and that is both a good thing and a bad thing. The positive side being the high energy output that rivals just about anything out there today; the down side being there was just not enough difference vocally between each song. 

All that being said, I really enjoyed this band and -- once you get used to the vocals -- you see a clear picture of what TME is all about. This recording is solid heavy metal with an edge sharp enough to make your ears bleed.

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.
