CORE OF NATION Machine World Rocksector Records (2008)

Core Of Nation

Debut album from this Stockholm band, it kicks off in great trad metal fashion.

Opening track "Blinded By Light" has a heavy nod at Black Sabbath's Master Of Reality, even down to the gentle almost stoner intro. The title track is a little heavier, showing more of a Candlemass influence.

The vocals are strong, clear, with only the accent, noise and mix at times making them hard to understand. The guitar is heavy and fluctuates between lead and rhythm, the lead riffs really standing out. There's even a touch of slide to the intro of "Sell Out" before the riffs come in.

"Breed Of Hate" stands out, a 6 minute epic that brings out the best of early Sabbath, with a nod at the early blues/doom metal Sabbath excelled at.

At the very heavy trad end and good too.
