Israel is maybe not the most famous Metal country but obviously the Metal scene there is probably one of the most intelligent and innovative one. If we have some legendary bands like Orphaned Land, Salem, or Blackfield (which is half British of course) we have now a new pretender and definitely this is something! With their first release which features a lot of amazing guests, the guys of Amaseffer already prove that we will have to keep their names in our minds, "Slaves For Life" is an exceptional and original epic release.

According to the album cover, isn't the exact title supposed to be "Exodus - Slaves for Life"?

Totally agree, he is one of my favourite male vocalists, I love him in Therion.
This album is OK, although a bit boring, too long and slow songs. The best ones IMO are Slaves For Life and Land Of The Dead.

Exactly. It's feels very slow and not building up the way I'd expect. Mats is awesome though, check out Radiance if you haven't
