Total run time
Vö/Releasebereits erschienen / already released 

Well, those bands from Czech Republic have always been something special, I have to mention that here. And although this act is defined as “Death Metal” (alright, there´s also this band name), I rather doubt that this category is correct. Deathstar could just as well be defined as Melodic Metal, Thrash (those killer riffs on City 17 remind you of Megadeth/Slayer heydays) or Progressive Metal. Because there is a lot of groove, variation and ear-candy music offered here.

Deathstar quartet was founded in 2006 from the ashes of Scythe and Thanathea bands, and two founding members have remained: Honza Pilař (voc, rhythm guitar) and Honza Richter (drums). Those 2 had to continue on their own for a while, and slowly early Black Metal tendencies were shed, they created a modern Death Sound with Thrash elements. Since 2009 Pavel (lead git) and Petr Ševčik (bass) are part of the newLine Up, and according to the band info those 2 are responsible for some musical fresh air, too. Let´s be greatful for that, because, well, sure, Blastbeats are a dominating element of this remarkable debut album, but there´s such a lot of groove and feeling and ear candy quality… grind freaks would probably find it too slow, complex and boring. But I am blown away – finally a band who combines technical and complex Death Metal in a melodic and appealing way – and STILL doesn´t sound like a Swedish clone.

The band website http://bandzone.cz/deathstar is unfortunately just in Czech language, but you will find some tracks there, I can recommend e.g. the already mentioned City 17 or Embrace To Harvest – but all their songs are really cool...
