There are downsides too, though. One concerns the production - a little too much compression resulted in kick drums occasionally deafening the rest of the band. Then there are the vocals - death growls of the finer kind admittedly, but still too loud and too monotonous - as a menacing declaration of war they work, but after a while the expression "nursery rhyme" will come to mind. Finally, although there are some outbursts of power and speed, one would still expect more. A full-length album of this kind of music could make Horus sound like Annihilator of death metal (that's a bad thing). But since there are just six songs and barely fifteen minutes of music on Declaration of War, Horus can get away with it. This time. Let's see what happens next.
