|Review: Landmine Marathon - Gallows|
Label: Prosthetic Records
Year released: 2012
Genre: Death Metal
Review online: February 7, 2012
Reviewed by: Michel Renaud
Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)
More modern-ish, fast-paced Death Metal from Landmine Marathon – forget about old school raw and dirty Death Metal, this is the cleaner, more modern and – at least in part – speedy approach. Where Gallows becomes interesting is in the dark, sometimes crushingly heavy atmosphere conveyed throughout the album, especially on the slower material where the band gets a little doomy without quite getting there. Crunchy guitars carry this one, whether it's on the low speed setting or blasting away like there's no tomorrow. There's nothing particularly outstanding on Gallows, but it doesn't overstay its welcome and is simply a nice little slab of Death Metal with enough variety to keep things interesting.
