Review by Tony Cannella

Frantic Amber is an all female metal band from Sweden. Their style is fast, loud, heavy and –to say the least – abrasive. Their 5-song EP “Wrath of Judgement” has just been made available, and if you can’t get enough of the aggressive stuff, than Frantic Amber is a band that is worth investigating. From the outset, Frantic Amber grabs the listeners’ attention as the guttural vocals of Elizabeth takes control on the pounding opening track “Wrath of Judgement”. “Bloodlust” is next and packs a huge wallop with its forceful energy and drive. Throughout the course of this 17-minute CD, Frantic Amber knows only one direction and that is pure brutality and heaviness. The next track, “The Awakening” is business as usual until near the end of the song where the band throws in something a little different as the tempo slows down, and clean female vocals come in. That explanation I’m sure does not do it justice, but it was a surprising moment that just comes out of nowhere. “Unbreakable” begins with a deliberate, doomy riff before the song settles into a steady pounding groove. “Doomed to Walk the Earth” brings “Wrath of Judgement” to a conclusion after only 17-minutes. Heavy? Aggressive? Brutal? Yes! Yes! Yes! Frantic Amber delivers an intense metal onslaught on their EP “Wrath of Judgement”. I would never profess to being an extreme metal aficionado but Frantic Amber is definitely a band that I would say is worthy of attention.

Rating – 88/100
