The riffs are simple but effectively heavy. No new ground is broken here. Deserted Fear appear content to drive the in the same wheel ruts that Amon Amarth and Dark Tranquillity did 10 years ago.

The album Om Generator is filled with some great feelings of nostalgia and new twists that make for a good album.
Imagine flames hailing down from the blackest of skies while putrid, festering lava flows consume the last vestiges of modern society. Black winged creatures swarm the few remaining humans, driving them towards the darkest of ends. Sounds like fun? No? Well, really it is.
Jumalten Aika by Moonsorrow evokes a sort of blood drenched imagery. By no means is the album all brutality. In fact, Moonsorrow have created a richly layered tapestry of mythology, harsh beauty, and encompassing darkness.
