Neferion – The Primordial Mode (2012)


In the short-but-sweet category, today we have a very talented entry from the Northern lands of Finland: Neferion and their 2012 demo “The Primordial Mode”. In this four-track release, the band showcases and new and fresh style that allows them to deliver powerful tracks filled with harsh and clean female vocals delivered by the band’s vocalist Maija Saari. Combining a good dose of melody and Thrash Metal this brief release gives you a powerful insight into the band’s musical capabilities.

Opening with the powerful “Nightingale” the band delivers waves of melo-Thrash riffs that immediately grab your attention. The growls are as powerful as any male-growls and the transitions to clean vocals are very well done. The sense of melody of the track is quite engaging and gives the band that clean-cut Finish-style of Melodic Metal presence. “Daunting” keeps the energy flowing and has more of a Modern Metal vibe to it with the chorus part making the band comparable to acts like Kittie and such, but with a more aggressive edge.

The sonic assault continues with the super catchy “Argo”, a track that is quite well structured and the funky Thrashy riffs are just excellent. The drumming is also very well crafted keeping everything in check thanks to the very solid production behind this release. Closing strong with the best track in this demo, “Force Within”, the band really saved the best for last with this excellent melodic track filled with lush vocal arrangements.

In general, we are quite pleased with “The Primordial Mode” since it shows Neferion delivering high-quality intense music. If you are a fan of Thrash Metal with modern and melodic elements, this is one demo release that you don’t want to miss so go and check out some samples at the band’s soundcloud page and get hooked on them.
