Talking openheartedly, this FAUST release is OK, good Death Metal with lots of riffs, interesting arrangements and a frequent use of latest Swedish melodies, mainly reminding some old DESULTORY or WITHOUT GRIEF, not what I consider my cup of blood but deservingly well played. Main error of pride I find about this band is that they always tend to label themselves "Brutal Death Metal" recurring in the same arrogant boast in which their rather worse countrymates MIND SNARE also fall committing sin of overconfidence. That doesn't necessarily mean this band is not heavy, I personally oftentimes tend to prefere good Death Metal to the modern crunchy American-coated Brutal Death. FAUST in this demo CD consist only of the frontman Filippo aka Aleister Demon, although a second guitarist and a bass player (which is now in our unsurpassable BASTARD SAINTS) executed their parts, their names was deleted by Filippo and replaced by a mysterious "session" bass and "session" guitar, that I wanted to clarify for correctness towards the other two previous players. Main thing that can hurt somebody who is not used to it, is FAUST's abundant use of drum machine, which blasts and incessantly churns beneath the musicwork, very unnatural, synthetic and a bit too predominant maybe. Again, all in all, this is very good death metal, the vocals are roaring, the lyrics satanic and lusty, the sounds really of top-level, could well be an official big release so much the sound engineering is accurate, overlooking the horrible cover artwork (in the vein of MORBID ANGEL's D and F albums, that is, blatantly 3d graphics) I consider FAUST in the upper half of the Death Metal bands in Italy which actually might convince out of the Italian soil. Considering also it's substantially a demo, it's really good.
