Colossus – Wake

Colossus – Wake
Perennity Records – 2013
Rock, Metal, Progressive, Sludge
Rated: ***

The Swedish trio Colossus already delivered a raving piece of forceful power with it’s Spiritual Myiasis EP in 2011. The amigos now return with a full-sized album called Wake. And it is a definite wake-up call. A powerhouse of screams and angry progressive metal that rumbles with impressive drums and is flooded by a truckload of guitar and snarling bass. The most passionate part about this record might be the fact that they manage to put some sort of mighty catchy sauce on top of all those levels of heavy music. For some reason one can imagine this band gathering attention from much more than the likes that already knew about them. Even though the vocals are brutish and somewhat over the top on occasion; and there is a masterful and technical edge to it all; that ‘everyone could accept this’ quality is ever pervasive. I can also see that same fact turn some of us freaks away…
