Five years after their previous release “The Abyss Noir”, Disharmony are back with a brand new album entitled “Gods Made of Flesh”. Despite all the problems they faced along the way, the band finally managed to release an album that showcases their notable progress in every part. “Gods Made of Flesh” is a concept album, which deals with the different kinds of enslavement we face during our lifetime. This time the songwriting is more consistent and better overall. The band seems more focused on what they want to achieve and they did manage to take things a step further.
The production is modern, heavy, powerful and tight. And that’s really amazing considering the fact the guys did all the hard job on their “home studio”, where guitarist John Karousiotis did all the engineering, mixing & mastering of the album. Apart from the updated equipment, this album also features the new drummer Nikos Miras that fits the band perfectly and his way of playing is really radical throughout the album. Moreover, vocalist Chris Kounelis delivers some of his best performances ever… probably it’s due to the concept or whatever this is, has inspired him to exceed himself this time. Furthermore the new album features guest appearances by Matthew Dakoutros (violin) on “Under the Waves”, Kostas Platanias (guitar solo) on “Cruel and Bitter” and Aspa Lambropoulou (backing vocals) on “The Shores of Our Destiny” & “Under the Waves”.
“Gods Made of Flesh” is the most complete work of the band to date. They blend heavy metal with thrash, prog, doom and a few extreme metal bits and the final outcome is truly remarkable. I can’t tell if this album will boost Disharmony to make the breakthrough they totally deserve, but I do think that this is the right time to try new things and go all the way. After all, they got what it takes to go bigger… all they need is a bit of luck and some smart moves… as music wise they are on the best shape ever.
