With the corners of the world in a debauchery and disarray because terrorism and war (just to name a few), what would you think if I told you the metal is flowing bright in Turkey, yeah Turkey? I’m not saying by any means Turkey is not a nice place to visit, I’m just saying I have never heard a band coming out of Turkey yet, but with MySpace and other internet venues it’s great to find and seek out band such as AFFLICTION.

Deafening and pulverizing with guitar licks of another planet Emrah Demirel overtakes center stage as AFFLICTION drives the tunes down your throat reaching membranes only an oral surgeon can manipulate. The band has hints of PANTERA with a heavier vocals style during “Retribution,” yet come right back with “The End” slicing a style of a bit harsher SCAR SYMMETRY. Really, the highlight for me was mystical guitars of Emrah Demirel and Kerem Inci as they wreak havoc with the six strings.

Another tune that is beaten into your head is “The Question,” with the rhythmic chords embedded for life that has your head banging until whiplash occurs; it’s completely out of control. The band has elements of DARK TRANQUILITY that should bring some attention to the band.

To tell you the truth I am not a big fan of harsh vocals but Emrah can mix it up and show the ability to reach out to other styles. But for sure, the music will ambush the typical rock fan with the technical overlays and ability to conjure up some of the best in heavy metal even with some tunes reaching the rock genre.

Check these madmen out if you dare, the slamming guitar work will have you hooked. AFFLICTION made a soon to be released video for “Raven” that was shot by Daniel Larsson who made also SOILWORK’s new video “Exile.”
