With “Growing Lines of Casket“ Intervention, a Rovaniemi-based Metal band, already presents its third demo, hoping for the final break-through like so many. Do they really have a chance, especially on such a crowded market like Finland? Music business is so often going its own way, sometimes understandable, sometimes not.
Presenting straight Thrash Metal fueled with ambitious guitar work, Intervention at least don’t need to hide themselves. When starting to listen to the demo almost instantly there might pop up a lot of comparisons. But since these sorts of comparison don’t do any justice to a band writing its own music, it shall not be mentioned here.
What you clearly can hear is the ambitious joy Intervention put into all three songs. Almost immediately one can imagine it to be great fun seeing this band play live on a big festival. You can almost feel the Wacken spirit and there’s no doubt that this band would perfectly fit to the billing. But what is also immediately clear on the other hand is that it would be hard to remember them properly the day after. And not because of maybe too much alcohol, but because of a lack of uniqueness. I miss the personality in the songs, this little piece that tells me that this is Intervention and not any other Thrash Metal band.
The plain strength of “Growing Lines of Casket” is the music itself. It’s straight and simply technically good. Just the voice sometimes somehow doesn’t do enough justice to the music. If singer Tuomo Marttinen managed to put the music’s force also into his voice, it would improve the whole issue.
Intervention is good, no doubt, but by now they do not intervene anything in fact. Just use your technical abilities and dare being a bit more offbeat so that one can also remember the songs and not just remember having fun while listening to them!
