There were many Graveworm fans that did not like the new direction that the band took on the album "(N)utopia". Well I was not one of those, I think that (N)utopia is one of the best albums Graveworm have ever done. This is also the reason why my expectations before the release of "Collateral Defect" were pretty high. Unfortunately they were too high as well.

Guest review by
Graveworm is a band I stumbled upon a while back, looking for new black metal. Engraved In Black and (N)Utopia were the two albums by them I first heard; Engraved is melodic black metal with gothic touches to it, while (N)Utopia saw melodic death metal influences begin to ooze into their music. Collateral Defect continues this, containing even more melodic death than black metal.

If I'm honest, this is a little more attentive and mature than (N) Utopia, though it still doesn't do much for me. The songwriting and musicianship seem more consistent, though some of the songs still grate at you even upon multiple listens. Despite this, the cover of Bonnie Tyler's "I Need a Hero" and "Memories" are a positive boon in an otherwise above-average effort.
