HOS­TILE ME­DIA FOR­MER COLD­WAR WAR­RIORS SEEK ONTOLOGICA­L EN­LIGHT­EN­MENT Formed from the ashes of Dublin riff lords Cold­war, the just­launched Sen­zar have an­nounced their ar­rival on the ex­treme me­tal scene in ri­otous fash­ion with this ti­tanic, ti­tle-shun­ning de­but opus. Aim­ing to “ex­plore the unity and mul­ti­plic­ity of be­ing” via the medium of head-crack­ing gui­tars and paint-strip­ping vo­cals, the six-song-strong re­lease of­fers a fe­ro­cious first taste of what this new band of sea­soned veter­ans can do. Set­ting their stall out strongly with the mon­strous, mo­lar-rat­tling CI, the band flirt with BM in­debted at­mo­spher­ics (CIII) and blud­geon­ing, su­per fast crust-flecked hard­core riffs (CV) over the course of around 30 min­utes. Vo­cal­ist Trevor McLave proves that you can also teach an old dog new tricks and he some­times adds a sin­is­ter edge to his voice which gives the likes of the crush­ing CII even more men­ace.
