Six months after their single Creator Became Absolute Axxen Conners is back with an EP titled Nowhere To Escape Sins where the aforementioned song makes an appearance. If you are familiar with Axxen Conners you can expect more of the same after listening to Creator Became Absolute, and for those of you that aren’t all that familiar with the Turkish band you can expect a twisted mass of death metal, black metal and even progressive elements. With all of the different genres stacked together, the sound that you get is solid, unique and memorable.
After a brief angelic intro Axxen Conners promptly kicks you off with a heavy and fast start. From then on they never let up ladling death plagued song after death plagued song at you. Axxen Conners does a great job of balancing out all of the different elements that they inject into their sound and more often than not all elements are present all at one time throughout each song. Nowhere To Escape Sins is an EP that gives you plenty of variety and plenty to listen for and plenty to listen for for each listen.
What Axxen Conners brings with this release is a solid listen that you can listen to over and over again in anticipation for a full length. With three songs they give you enough to tide you over and it is just short enough to keep you chomping at the bit for more. Each song-as well as the entire EP-is memorable from the first note on as you can’t shake any of the songs that are bouncing around in your head. Not only that, but Nowhere To Escape Sins is a heavy hitting EP that knocks your teeth back down your throat every chance it gets.
Nowhere To Escape Sins is riddled with devastating riffs, heavy bass lines, acrobatic drumming and vocals that switch between throat cutting growls and ear splitting screeches. Among the wall of death metal noise you get synthesizers in the background that give you that progressive sound as well as another layer of atmosphere. Axxen Conners puts everything together very well in this EP to create a cohesive sound. Nowhere To Escape Sins is a shredding EP that gets stuck with you and gets you headbanging and air guitar soloing all throughout.
