Review from the Spanish site Metalkorner.com (in Spanish) ! Thank You Metalkorner.com !
The room smelled musty, urine, feces and fear. They had been held hostage longer than their broken psyches could remember. The kidnapper did not expose any request. He just claimed over and over again that his actions were only driven by revenge. His intention was to make the politician’s family suffer as long as possible, and show the world what he was capable of. The acts he committed were abhorrent. Torture, rape, humiliation… The security forces could not find the whereabouts of the terrorist. Faced with such futility, the leader ended up hiring one of the best teams of hitmen in the world. The ability to act was almost immediate. On the morning of December 30, 2025, the door of the abandoned ship was flung open. The victims, for a few seconds only saw a silhouette. Then, they heard screams of rage and gunshots, which ended in a dull silence they will never forget. It was all over.
Welcome to the universe of OSHIEGO.
Seven Kings Productions released on January 14, 2022 the fifth LP by death metallers OSHIEGO. The round took the name Jaljalut . Now, Metal Korner and a server, offers you the opportunity to read their respective reviews.
Before starting with the review, as always, I leave you the line up of the band: Umar Khan (vocals), Zul (guitar, bass), Krzysztof Klingbein (session drums).
Ladies and gentlemen, how bad it is to judge before time. I have to confess that I had never heard of the Singaporeans before. Just seeing the typography of the logo made me want to do it. For those who don’t know me, they don’t know that I hate to death bands that try to mix ethnic elements with extreme metal. Normally, and removing very few and honorable exceptions, I think that this mixture does not gel, reducing the solidity of the final result of the proposal. To my surprise and delight, it turns out that the power trio perfectly manages to bring together disparate sonic characteristics with complete mastery. Honestly, I’ve enjoyed it more than a pig in a mud puddle. The twelve tracks that the album in question brings exude darkness, melody and anger in an incredible way. Everything, and when I say everything is everything, it’s in its place,
Amazing are the notes that come out of the six strings of Zul. His work is wonderful to say the least. Arabic character scales come together with onslaughts of tremolo picking, double harmonies and flowing riffs masterfully. As if that weren’t enough, the solos will blow your brains out.
In the vocal section there are no surprises. You will enjoy growls, only growls and nothing but growls, without nonsense of double registers or clean vocals.
Percussion is a monument to the concept of dynamism. Hats off to Krzysztof Klingbein. So yes.
Dear Metal Korner readers, Jaljalut has definitely entered my personal top ten of 2022. You need it in your collection. Note: 9
