There's something about Death Sentence, the debut album from the U.K.'s Exxxekutioner. I was expecting more of the same frantic riffing and proto-black vocals you get from all the black/thrash out there, but these guys have turned up the intensity and left a lot of their peers in the dust. Sure, this is a tried and true formula and the songs go by in such a blur that it is challenging to distinguish one from the next but, dammit, every time I put this on, I just want to bang my head. Hard. Maybe the riffs are just that much better or maybe it is because the whole album is a mere 23 minutes and 33 seconds and reminds me of the whiplash I got the first time I heard Reign in Blood, I'm not really sure. I just know that Death Sentence kicks ass and is over way too soon. More of this, please.
