Banner Of Defeat
On their sophomore album "Banner of Defeat" Neorite offer their heaviest and bleakest side so far and just hereby find their very own and distinctive style of metal. Equipped with the punch of classic Sepultura and a sense for sinister melodies of the deadly kind as with Dissection and Death, the clean vocals are towering above it all, sometimes emotional as Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost), sometimes vigorous as Tom G. Warrior (Celtic Frost). Though being marginalized here in favor of a crushing heaviness, the alt rock influences of the debut album merge in partly complex song structures and provide them with a catchiness hard to elude. On "Banner of Defeat", Neorite create their own epic and dark version of doom-infested thrash metal, never daunted by genre barriers.
