VIC RECORDS 2016
Originally already created in 2014 and released by the Dutch band Procreation, now more than 2 years later VIC Records recreated their first album with a different cover for a rerelease. Letâs have a listening, while the first creation also didnât reached my attentionâŠ
Procreation was created around 2012 from the Dutch underground and can be ranked as an old school death metal band, that creates old school basic death metal with some doom influences.
Pro: The positive aspects to mention are at first notice the vocals of Mark Ketelaar re-bringing the memories of the Dutch old school death metal masters Gorefest alive, especially at the time of their first two demoâs. Besides that probably Ronald Louwsma has re-brought some aspects of his former band Beyond Belief, that are responsible for the interesting and attractive parts where doom structures and leads are taking over the basic death metal. These moments will remind you of bands like Deadend, Asphyx and Mourning.
Counter: No creating and creativeness at all, just re-recording and reviving the early 90âs death metal wave at a mediocre and disinteresting (sound) level. When you want to have that re-feeling, Ill suggest to have a re-listening of the mentioned âProâ bands.
Resume: Interesting for the old school fraction, for whom creating doesnât mean more than recreating old school and old times going back more than 25 years. âGhostwoodâ is unfortunately not more and not lessâŠ Iâll leave it up to you if this creation is interesting enough for your personal (f)ears.
