Krigblåst-Power till Demise

Back in 2012 i posted three demo tracks by this band named Krigblåst when i accidentally found them on ReverbNation, the band was formed by members of Final Conflict, Leftover Crack and Phobia. Power till Demise is their next recording and currently only in digital format, available on Soundcloud while a new 7" titled Hell to Pay comes out in a few days, released by Bloody Scythe Records. The prelude of  Power till Demise is an epic acoustic intro for the first track, Burn It All which soon turns into a crust thunder that could be recorded by Wolfpack during the sessions of New Dawn Fades or Bloodstained Dreams. I think that describes it all, Krigblåst are heavily influenced by Wolfpack and Wolfbrigade and thats what they deliver here: D-beat crust punk with powerful shouted vocals, catchy guitar riffs with a slight metallic flavor and with great melodies in the leading parts that some times get very clear (Watch Them Die) but the same time they keep the heaviness in line. The demo tracks are included here, the singer has a great voice and in any case he doesn't reminscent Jonsson or Micke. The sound quality is excellent and the whole recording last for nearly 24 minutes. Overall this a great piece of melodic crust known by Tragedy, Wolfbrigade, From Ashes Rise, Wolfpack etc but their eye is on the Sweden's side and not US. I can't find a song inferior to the others, all stand equal and in high level. As i said Power till Demise is available on Soundcloud,  its worth and hope to see this coming out as vinyl. And don't forget Hell to Pay 7", it comes out in a few days in only 300 copies (66 white vinyl).
