Ektomorf – Black Flag (2012)

Ektomorf – Black Flag (2012) Although they have been often criticized as being heavily influenced by Max Cavalera’s Sepultura and Soulfly, Ektomorf managed to gather a serious fan base around Europe and the perseverance of Zoltán “Zoli” Farkas finally were fructified. Too similar to Sepultura and Soulfly or not, Ektomorf deliver the same kind of merciless, intense, Hardcore fueled, modern, Groove Metal. In these riffs, screaming vocals, heavily pounding drums there is no compromise, but fury, focused anger, brutally expressed honest, human revolt.
Ektomorf was founded in 1993 in Mezőkovácsháza, Hungary, a small city near the Romanian border, by Zoltán “Zoli” Farkas. Due to his gypsy background Zoli saw himself confronted with racism and prejudices, which made even harder for an East European Metal band to get recognized, locally and internationally. After releasing 3 records and touring Hungary back and forth, their breakthrough came when they started collaboration with Danish producer Tue Madsen. They singed to Nuclear Blast in 2004 and moved to AFM Records in 2009 being label mates with bands such as U.D.O., Doro, Masterplan, Annihilator, etc.
“Black Flag” is the band’s eight studio album, although, on February 17, 2012, the band relesed through AFM Records an album entitled “The Acoustic” consist in 12 “unplugged” (acoustic) versions of newly recorded songs from previous records, plus two cover songs, “Simple Man” by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues”.
