Rated 3.25/5 (65%) (4 Votes)
Plague Angel present here a very short demo, but it's packed with quite a bit of punch. "Raped by Lies" is roughly a mix of Floridian and Swedish Death Metal (as in real Swedish DM, not melodeath stuff), marrying the USDM heaviness with the rawer edge of the Swedish sound. It's heavy through and through, not overly fast overall but still with a few speedy passages. The vocals are quite guttural, more or less Cannibal Corpse style, with a few noticeably cleaner passages, such as on the chorus of "Deviants of Humanity". It's all good if you want crushing, pounding metal without much variety, but after a few listens it can get a little tiring. A few solos to liven things up wouldn't have hurt. ;) But there's only so much you can showcase on such a short release and this is pretty good overall, so my guess is that these guys could pack quite a few good surprises in a full length album.
