Rated 3.2/5 (64%) (5 Votes)

Musically, The Grave of Seven Billion sounds very much like Deicide's Legion era but with a trashier and more experimental feel to it. Even Dmitriy Dolgov on bass and vocals sounds amazingly much like Mr. Benton himself. Perhaps Dmitriy is Glen's Russian cousin or something?

I must admit that this slab sounds pretty cool in every sense, but at the same time, some moments on the record can tend to irritate for lack of a proper direction. It's a bit too directionless for my picky tastes. Or perhaps I just don't understand everything that comes my way (that's the case most likely to me).

The Grave of Seven Billion does have a few moments of killer momentum here and there, especially whenever funk-ish bass, Primus-like spots of sound rush to the surface for a short moment (love that sound), plus heavy, chunky riff work appeals to me greatly.

This is overall kind of a funny disc to listen to, but perhaps a bit too much an exaggerated mishmash of too many different parts glued together for its own good.
