Eclectic Icelanders start to forge their own enthrallin­g alloy

Icelandic sextet Une Misère show some serious promise on their debut album.

Sermon gobbles up all kinds of influences, from modern death metal to straight-up hardcore to alternativ­e rock, and smashes them all together in a package that is familiar, but never generic. The middle of the record is certainly the sweet spot.

Fallen Eyes starts with a beautifull­y clean melodic vocal and some wailing chords and then transition­s into a blastbeat-heavy rager, followed by the early-slipknot drum’n’ bass-infused groove metal of Beaten. But most of

Sermon is well worth checking out if you are a fan of the core sounds of contempora­ry metal. If they build on this over future releases, then we could be looking at a very good band indeed. ■■■■■■■■■■
