There is an increase in the amount of instrumentals used on this album. There are several stretches where the band goes several minutes and just lets their instruments do the talking.
When Gus Chambers does talk, you'd better listen. The vocals on this album are intense, meaningful, and thought provoking.
The guitar work by Waldemar Sorchyta is unmatched. As one could expect, the drumming of Dave Lombardo is second to none.
A couple of stand-out tracks on this album include the blistering "War Between One" and the furious "Myth or Man".
This is not to say the other tracks aren't as good. Every single one is amazing in its own right.
This album flows very well and should be a part of anyone's collection., not just the metalhead. All I can say is "When's the next album coming out?" and "When are they touring next?"
Lombardo and his crew are hopefully going to be around for a while, but with all the projects Lombardo has delved himself into.....who knows!
Very similar to Slayer actually in some respects, I don't know why anyone would say this is not. Dave Lombardo does a great job on drums (as usual), the guitarist is good too, and the singer's not bad either.
Actually, Gus Chambers sounds a lot like Tom Araya on some tracks.
I was lucky enough to find this CD at a second hand place. I only listened to two of the songs on the album before buying it, I figured Lombardo's drumming alone would make this a great album.
Worth a listen. Fav. song on the album: Pathetic Liar
While stylistically, Nemesis doesn't make much of a departure overall from their sound they had already established on the debut.
There is some small advancement of their sound on this release, but nothing to the level that their next 2 releases Solidify & Incorporated would display.
But like I had already mentioned, there is much more of a true thrash element permeating throughout this release in comparison to Power of Inner Strength.
Dave Lombardo still shows that he's the greatest metal drummer to ever walk the earth. The guitar work and vocals are just as great as well.
There might not be quite as much variety on this 2nd effort as on their debut, but overall, this album makes a great companion piece to their debut release.
Fans of smart and well written/performed metal would do wise to pick up their entire catalog.
This is some of the most overlooked metal that has been released up to this point. Unfortunately, Grip Inc constantly got labled as just a Slayer ripoff, but in most respects, Grip Inc is a totally different band and in a lot of areas such as songwriting/arrangements etc. is a stronger band than Slayer anyway.
But to me, comparing Grip Inc to Slayer is like comparing apples to oranges.
