Album Review

Reviewed 2007-08-05
A few doods from Malevolent Creation & Forest of Impaled playing some kick-ass, thick & brutal yet melodic death metal. Neither brutal for the sake of brutal nor melodic for the sake of melodic - just very riff heavy, punishing DM played from it’s blackend heart. Although 16 tracks is a bit too much. Kinda similar to: Nile, old Deicide and Immolation.

(((((1))))) Rolling, big sound with lots of crazy changes. Tech-y but traditional. Oüh!
((((2)))) Growling hell-beast fast ass, pretty raging grind-death Mr. Carcass have you met Mr. Brutal Truth?
((((((3)))))) Fast, death/speed with turbo-charged gallop riffage. GREAT dual vocals & weird breaks/solos. Air guitar to this shit!
(((((4))))) Blasting death torrent with some doomy parts. Really depraved lyrics (did Rumseld write this?). Killer wall o’ riffs (1:55-2:15 & 2:44-3:08)
(((5))) Standard death-groove ‘ala Deicide.
(((((6))))) WTF? Totally out of place but totally awesome acoustic, gypsy folk-waltz!
(((((7))))) An ever-building riff eventually descends doomward & over to trad. 80’s metal soloing land. Great mix!
((((8)))) ULTRA-Fast rapid fire beats/riffs. Jud-juds a plenty & solid bass sound.
(((((9))))) Crazy semi-tech structure ‘ala Misery Index then almost hardcore riffs underneath.
(((10))) Basic, bone crushing death metal some OK variations.
(((11))) Pantera gone batshit? Scattershot beats, jagged structure but mostly varied for the sake of being varied.
(((12))) Thick & battering death metal with some solid riffing.
(((13))) Black/death metal, the treble-laden meets the thick low-end havin’.
(((((14))))) At The Gates riffage with the Nile-like massive epic qualities.
(((((15))))) Awesome blasting & screamed intro, playing like a jackhammer on crack with lots of giant riffs. (FCC “fucking” sung once)
(16) Slow, sludgey instrumental, should kept these riffs on yer rehersal tape!
