* Michal Čermák's review of Desire & Rage
Released at 18. 02. 2009

At Michal Čermák's blog (cermi.yc.cz) appeared a Desire & Rage review. You can read the original here or translation in this article.

Desire & Rage at waves of wood metal. Music of my ears... pure, aggressive and brutal metal. All these are Warchild from Rakovnik (CZ). Band who got me (Aleister especially) to the hardest areas of music, we can hear. It’s two years already since Warchild released the album Looking Back and after this break the band goes through unprecedented come-back, which moves the band farer and farer.

The album is full of surprises. New bass guitarist Silentor, new videos, surprisingly light-colored booklet. Metal albums are mostly supposed to have the booklet as dark as possible. Not the case with Warchild – you can see it at Aleisters website. This album has the qualities of the best studio records, although the band recorded it all by themselves and self-released too.

After inserting it into CD player I was amazed. I’ve heard some parts prior to release of the album, but at the CD the album got luxurious sound. The first track is called Bloody shadows of London. The beginning with keyboards goes in quite peaceful way. Listener’s wating what comes next. Un-awaited wave of aggressive vocal so much typical for Warchild. It’s just a pity that in this song, more than wherever else, is very audible the sound of drum machine.

Then comes Hell of Despair. Somewhat more thrashy thing with some black parts. I cannot omit luxurious keyboard backline. Although I don’t like keyboards inmetal very much, I can’t imagine this song without their background. if you listen carefully to this song, you’ll get surprised, as it slows down unbelievably. From the beginning till the end you fly on the waves of speed and aggression and the cut, the song slows down and your ears get filled by pure brutality.

Burning… more or less black metal thing. Brutal piggery from the beginning till the end. The band filmed video to this song, which you have to see, because I can’t find the right words to describe this song and video. The fans of old, maybe even old school, metal will fly high as I did.

Old man’s legend… another piece accompanied by video. Slower song, but more aggressive. Fast parts take turns with slower and slower parts take turns with faster. Aggression and brutality – these symbols of Warchild perhaps signed this song the most.

Warrior – starts slowly, but ends fast. After a few measures of slow guitars sounds in your ears nearly grind thrashing, which won’t leave you calm.

Hell of Despair II – sequel of Hell of Despair.... I’ve got no words for that, you have to gear this song. The music thrusts you down to your knees and when you listen to the lyrics... indescribable experience.

Last goodbye – this song begins with suspiciously similar riff like Doom from previous album. I examined this fact quite a long time and it’s not so. There is some similarity, but screw it... This track is almost progressive, but still stays classic a lot... treat for ears.
As the last song there is bonus slow hit called Canon In D Major, written by Johann Pachelbel. This bonus song would fit into playlist of any sympho-metal band, but it has its upright place at Warchild CD and I have to confess that the arrangement is really luxurious.

Maybe you’ll object and snarl that I didn’t write very much. But believe that music of Warchild can’t be described in words, you simply have to hear it. Videos and samples you can find at band’s official website, where you can also buy the CD :D
