Fateful Finality – “Executor”

DIGITAL | CD
The stylistic focus of the thrash metal band FATEFUL FINALITY is unmistakable whereas their strong individuality and compositional cleverness is always surprising. Having been close friends since kindergarten Simon Schwarzer (guitar, vocals), Patrick Prochiner (guitar, vocals) and Philipp Mürder (bass) founded the band in 2007 together with drummer Mischa Wittek. Since then they have been pulling together, with full power and in the same direction.
From the get-go one of the most remarkable characteristics of the band has been the diverse singing styles. Simon Schwarzer is responsible for the rough vocals whereas Patrick Prochiner takes care of the clean vocals creating an elaborate counterpart. Many of FATEFUL FINALITY’s songs live on this deliberately chosen friction and most likely can be regarded artistically as a masterful mix of sound worlds from bands like Machine Head, Exodus, Lamb Of God, Testament or The Haunted.
As already was the case on “King Of Torture”, “Battery” and “Mankind” FATEFUL FINALITY fire off highly powerful and riffy thrash metal on “Executor” ranging from fast-paced (“Fire And Brimstone”, “The Raid”) to grooving (“Rot”) and featuring a surprisingly modern death metal track “They Breed The Dead”.
Lyrically the musicians are far from being some simple, lightweight metal guys. Often times only apparent at second glance, they are dealing with the seven deadly sins which is also expressed in the detailed cover artwork of “Executor”. Certainly, this captivating not-only-thrash-metal-band and their new album have lots to offer and will be quite present in the future. Without a doubt FATEFUL FINALITY have the energy and musical quality to make a name for themselves internationally. Along that way “Executor” will surely become another milestone in their band history.
