GRYN

ďOur New EarthĒ (10 tracks. 42:21).

You canít predict much about this CD just by looking at the cover. I took one look at it and thought it was hardcore. But it really isnít. Well, it does have the screamed vocals (imagine the spit flying!), the grinding guitars, and such. But musically Gryn have enough thrash in them to please a much larger crowd. And they certainly have some cool, catchy riffs. Secondly, you expect the usual hate filled message dripping with attitude, and while that may yet be the case, you find a great deal more in the lyrics than what is on the surface. Philosophy and theology have a part in the writing, though frankly you cannot be sure if these guys are neo-Nietzschian nihilists or Christians. Of course, Nietzsche wasnít really a nihilist, but most pseudo philosophers donít know that. Anyway, with this band it could go either way. In summary, Grynís album ďOur New EarthĒ is a surprising release with thought provoking lyrics and memorable music.
