Enemy Of The Sun  


Apparently 2007 was the year that Waldemar Sorychta got the itch to play metal again. The long-time producer hadn't played regularly since his days in the on-again, off-again Grip Inc. (and that band hasn't recorded since 2004), so he decided to launch not one, but two new bands. One is the gothic band Eyes Of Eden, and the other is this here Enemy Of The Sun, the name possibly a tribute to the great Neurosis as they have an album by that name. To Sorychta's credit, the two bands are quite different from each other and also different from his past works. Moreover, given all the projects that he's done over the years, Enemy Of The Sun is clearly the least conventional, almost to the point of being indescribable. Essentially this is modern thrash with a detectable System Of A Down-style quirkiness at times (vocal lines, odd tempo/mood shifts in songs), which at times works quite well and other times seems a bit directionless. Pick a genre (death, black, thrash, progressive) and a piece will show up somewhere here, which in theory is great but in practice doesn't always work so well. The followup, 2010's Caedium, is more or less in the same vein, though perhaps a bit less diverse. To the band's credit, they are trying to be a bit different, even if everything doesn't always gel as it should.
