Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (2 Votes)

Mexican Black/Death horde Ragnell were founded in 2011, and their sophomore album Rebirth in Darkness shows them continuing their quest to purge the land of all things holy. Musically, you could call them a more blackened and stripped-down version of Vital Remains that does away with the epic elements and long solos, instead focusing on the fast-paced brutality whose relentless intensity will rip the soul straight from your body. The vocals have the expected croaks and grunts from both ends of the genres mixed, but they also add some twisted choirs that sound like the chants of Satanic monks, which really adds to the evil atmosphere of this album. Wrap all of that in a solid production job and you have an album that any fan of Black/Death can safely get sight unseen. Just be sure to toss away your crucifix if you want to survive the experience, because they sure as hell won't show any mercy otherwise!
