      Carry the Torch 'Obsession' Album Review by Allyson Kingsley

      Carry the Torch


      Sliptrick Records

      July 2, 2019

      Album Review by Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

      Boston Rock Radio

      Carry The Torch is:

      Dennis Johansson – Vocals

      Philip Nilsson – Guitar

      Victor Wahlstedt – Guitar

      Björn Lindgren – Drums


      From the first glance, I rather liked the album cover. For some odd reason, it can "tell" quite a bit about what the album or band is about. Regardless,  I am a fan of album art and Amanda Louli does a great job with exquisite detail.

      The songs on this album were originally created in 2009/2010 and were reworked by guitarist Philip Nilsson to achieve a better level of melody for a smoother flow. Together with his fellow musicians they reworked several of the songs and kept a few of the original takes. The theme of the album is fire, rising from the ashes, and some apocalyptic themes embedded within.

      "Obsession" roars at you, hard as nails, enveloped in ferocity. "Bow Down" has a Slayer-esque vibe with a great production and kickass drumming. "A New Hell" and "Blackened Screams" have a consistent and constant blast of metal delivered with a flair of old-school verve. All the songs are utterly ravenous and deep with tight riff work full of frenzied and frantic arrangements that give it a dynamic savagery. The ferocity and severity of the vocals somehow blend smoothly with the often times power metal feel of the melody.

      This was an immense album to dive into.
