Blackened-yet-oldschool death metal of the finest kind. What a great find this band is! They absolutely nailed the classic death metal sound and made it hard to tell whether this came out in 2021 or 1990.
The production of the drums is especially clear, which may be a hint to some that this is brand new, but it creates (for me) a sense of clarity that really elevates the album. The riffs are strong, the vocals are otherworldly, and the music is free to move among the crystal-sharp drums.
I love how this band can hit so hard, surpassing expectations as the album plays through. These guys know their craft. This is really an instant classic.
