Branding an album 'Downfall of Man' pretty much sets the tone - The Burden Remains from Wünnewil/CH chose to ignore the easy way around, and went face to face with humanity. Songs like 'To The Wolves', 'Prophecy Of Decay', and 'Out Of The Fire / Into The Flames' called for far more elaborate ways than the band's riff-ridden past, and they answered by dropping the attitude, and going for their most dynamic range of musical expression yet: The album is proof of what sheer dedication can unlock, and features the four-piece and their music at the first peak of their young career. Thrash hasn't been that exciting in years - Mainly because people never thought about actually taking it to the next level!
