5.0 out of 5 stars This is not a complete Pantera rip off October 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is pretty much just southern thrash metal so of course it draws comparisons to Pantera, Exhorder, Superjoint Ritual, Down and countless others. Regardless, this CD feels fresh, like it's something you've heard before but with a fresh spin on it. There is a new singer on this album named Kevin Randel and it's obvious this guy is a true metalhead, and probably a big southern metal fan. Every song on this album has an underlying dark southern feel, and the anger can definitely be felt pulsating out of this disc. People say this sounds like a Pantera clone, but they definitely do not sound like just Pantera. At times the singer sounds like Phil Anselmo but these riffs are all original and so are the songs, and let me tell you these songs are brutal and will rip your face off. As of this review Kevin Randel has left the band so we'll see what happens to A Perfect Murder, but even if they break up I highly recommend this album to any metalhead. The best songs are "Strength through Vengeance", "Body and Blood", "Slay the Masses" and the amazing "Wake up and Die".

5.0 out of 5 stars SOUNDING LIKE PANTERA IS NOT A BAD THING August 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
That said, its a very goooood thing, in fact these guys now own my soul, I thought for sure Pantera or anything sounding even similar to Pantera was gone for good, then STV hits, its not Pantera and not as good quality as Pantera, but its realllly close in alot of ways. The vocals are Phil Anselmo, cloned as Kevin Randell, they are awesome, period. The guiter work isnt Dime and doesnt seem to even attempt to imitate him, it reminds me much more of old metallica especially the solos. Drumming is perfect to the music and solid throught, diddo on bass work.

So what if they imitate Pantera, Pantera is dead and gone with the subtraction of Dime there will never be a reunion.

All I can say is THANK YOU GUYS A MILLION TIMES OVER, anyone that is a true Pantera fan will not look at STV as an imitation but as a badddllllllllyyyyyyyyy needed return of real metal.

Im so dam* tired of all these retread hardcore/metalcore bands, they are over saturating and killing themselves just like thier hated "nu-metal" predecessors did.


Also, dont buy this album thinking this is the next Pantera, its not, PANTERA is the best band ever period, but A PERFECT MURDER is the NEXT BEST THING after pantera, Which is pretty good in my book.

EVERY song on this album is excellent, I only wish it was longer, LONG LIVE APM AND THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH for makeing a Pantera fans dream come true, which is a new band that can give you the same feeling you came away from Pantera with.

This album stands firmly on its own and does not need the comparisons, but why not compare to the greatest?

4.0 out of 5 stars (3.5 stars) Two ways to view this album February 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
When rating A Perfect Murder's new album, the group's third full length release, it was quite difficult to find the correct number of stars. There are really two opinions you could have about this album; you can either think it's quite an enjoyable listen which satisfies your heavy metal thirsts, or you could think that this band is seriously lacking a sound of their own. I am somewhere in between. It does lose some points for originality-the album title ("Strength Through Vengeance") sounds like it could have come straight out of an old Pantera notepad; and the real lack of innovation, here, is due to the vocal style. Newfound band member Kevin Randel is obviously a true, very angry and hate-filled metalhead, and he makes for quite a powerful vocalist. But, unfortunately, he has clearly listened to a lot of Pantera/Down/Superjoint Ritual, because his throat straining yells (and even his supple growls) almost always sound like Phil Anselmo ("Body and Blood" could easily be a continuation of Pantera's 1994 single, "I'm Broken"). But that is my only real complaint, because the rest of the members of A Perfect Murder don't usually echo Pantera. Plus, "Strength Through Vengeance" sounds just fine, and it should satisfy most metalheads. The title track is a maelstrom of blowtorch riffs, pounding drums, howling vocals, and a couple of careening guitar solos. Later on, track four, "Snake Eyes," is backed by fast, churning riffs and insistent double bass drumming; "Path of Resistence" is a pounding rhythm; "Rotten I" has a salvo of blistering, machine gun riffs; and "Suffocation of Thought" has three wailing solos. Track ten, which is a somewhat soft instrumental entitled "Time Changes Nothing," breaks up the album's monotony and is the only song to bring any type of melody into the mix. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars The best Pantera rip off I've ever heard July 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A Perfect Murder is no longer the band you once thought you knew. Their not a hardcore band or even a metalcore band with the tendency to throw in some solos here in there anymore. Their simply a metal band and you'd have to expect major changes when 3/5 of the lineup changes including your vocalist. Is this a bad album? No not really. There's just nothing special going on here. They sounded more unique on "Unbroken" even though this album will probably generate more fans. I'm not sure if Phil Anselmo would be proud at a what a great impression (including the spoken words and croons!) the new vocalist does of him or if he would turn his head and laugh, but the guitar work doesn't even touch the late and great Dimebag Darrell. Basically, what you have here is a very generic Pantera rip off. If you want a new release from Victory pick up the new Darkest Hour "Undoing Ruin" or wait until the new Between The Buried And Me drops at the end of the year. If you want to hear how much this sounds like Pantera listen to "Suffocation Of Thought."
