Returning with a ten-track album, and the fifth in their career to date, is Angertea. The alternative rock and metal band provides an honest account of their emotions with songs focusing on issues concerning depression, helplessness, love and corruption in modern-day society. With a number of the ten tracks featuring a series of guest musicians including Franz Stahl (ex-Foo Fighters, Scream), Robert Jaksa (Ektomorf), Flóra Sarusi-Kis, Dióssy Ákos (Kipál És A Borz) and Peter Csontos (The Void), Angertea’s latest album, ‘Snakes In Blossom’, never sounds disjointed considering the extra personnel involved. With the band citing their sound as “experimental grunge metal with unique features” and being an apt description when listening to the Alice in Chains meets Soundgarden ‘Snakes’, and then, ‘Sinking In Strain’, which has hints of Tool for example. The changing nature of the music does not end there as ‘Aquarium’ slows the tempo with its softer approach of folk and alt-rock that works to great effect with the vocals of guest singer Flóra Sarusi-Kis complementing the normal vocal duties of Angertea’s Gergő. It’s a fine song, and one that greatly stands out here. Normal service is resumed with the experimental grunge and lengthy ‘Orange Machine’. The band know, however, when balance is required and they certainly address this with the lighter soundwaves of ‘The Moon Encounter’, before ending in a crescendo of noise via the closing ‘Tisza’. ‘Snakes In Blossom’ is a clear reminder of the talented musicianship of this Hungarian trio, who manage to further their own ideas with a little help from their friends via their latest collection of songs.
