MAZE OF TORMENT       Hidden Cruelty
Black Lodge (release: April 27th, 2007)

Consciously or not, any musician is inevitably influenced by what he will listen from "colleagues". But there, MAZE OF TORMENT seems to dedicate a particular cult to masters SLAYER. Obviously, there is worse as a reference but then, either Hidden Cruelty is an unconcealed tribute or a complete plagiarism ! And to convince yourself, listen to the first chords of Dead Run. So, doesn't it remind you anything ?...Laurent
