Album Review: Ektomorf – Retribution

Leave a comment

May 27, 2014 by Dan Swinhoe


Ektomorf are one of those bands for whom change is an unknown concept. Their career spans 20-odd years and 9 albums worth of music described variously as Max Cavalera worship, flattery, or plagiarism, depending on who you ask.

Their latest effort, Retribution, does little to silence the critics, but gives the fans a well-crafted and energetic slab of what they like. It’s 45 minutes of groovy down-tuned riffs, tribal drumming, lashings of guttural aggression and the odd Nu-metal influence. Same as all the other Ektomorf albums, but that’s ok. We expect nothing less, and nothing more.
