Album Review

And once again a new audible masterpiece to melt your face off with riffs forged in classic Metal heaven. Fresno’s best: Trevor William Church is at it again with ‘Flashback’, the fourth LP of HAUNT. HAUNT was a strong band from the start but as it seems the sound is still further re-and defined with every coming output. Not so long ago I joked about Trevor, who is well-known for being a workaholic that creates great music in short periods of time, writing five records during Corona (and now we have a new one and a compilation named ‘Burst into Demos’).

The new material is pure gold to be honest. Songs like ‘Figure in a Painting’ remind of achievements like ‘Mindfreeze’, the title song of the predecessor, and ‘Electrified’ with its incredibly nuanced use of synth sounds is a little insider tip in my book. I even think that this output is overall catchier than the last one (which I appreciate very much). If Trevor continues writing music like this, HAUNT may become one of my top three Heavy bands of the last 20 years (which means a lot because I demand an awful lot for a position like that). It is fucking crazy but I will have to decide if it is ok to have two records of one band in my top 20 of the year. By the way: BUY THIS NOW, THANK ME LATER!
