Ignorance Through Sovereignty

Rated 3.17/5 (63.33%) (6 Votes)

Looking for some New York-style Death Metal without much surprises but still well-executed? Look no further. This quintet first started as a metalcore outfit and there's still a bit of that influence popping its ugly head here and there, but overall things here are based on "classic" NY death metal. Very guttural vocals (sometimes maybe a bit too much - dude, I don't want to see what you ate for breakfast come out of your mouth :)), lots of time changes, fast and heavy but sometimes slowing down to a heavy crawl... All the ingredients are here. Throw in a few surprisingly catchy hooks and a few church bells to diminish the risk of the album getting too monotonous - the kind of little interludes that make you snap to attention if you weren't attentive. I noticed that sometimes the sound gets a bit blurry, almost like the speakers are screwed up (they're not, so it's the album. ;)) This is not an album that can be trashed, but nor can it be praised: Some good ideas, but they don't go far enough to set themselves apart from other Death Metal bands with similar influences. Still, this is a very good DM album if you like it brutal NY-style and just can't get enough of that stuff.
