As with all classic trilogies, the third and final installment is always the most grandiose, and Terminal's 'Zadnji Izlet' ('The Final Trip') is true to this timeless formula. The past two singles, 'Heavy Metal Lokomotiva' and 'Satanski Naročila,' have highlighted the immense power of Eastern Bloc Heavy Metal but on 'Zadnji Izlet,' mastermind Tobias Lindkvist goes all-in with the genre's overlooked ballad style, complete with melancholy melodies that you can sing along to, regardless of whether or not you know Slovenian or not. The flip-side, appropriately titled 'Epilog,' features the songwriting of Antichrist's Gabriel Forslund, and is the perfect ending that wraps up what Terminal was created for: a tribute to a wonderfully peculiar and once obscure style of Heavy Metal. Electric Assault Records is proud to realize this mission, and to do it justice, 'Zadnji Izlet' will be released as a 12" single for optimum sound quality. As with the previous two, this release is strictly limited to 500 copies worldwide.
An absolute enhancement to the demo! Great riffs and melodies, both aggressive and catchy. And Julia has really improved her vocals ("Lake of Necrosis", what a chorus!). Personally, a possible contender for AOTY! Chris
