Church of the Dead are an old school Death Metal band with a bit of an odd release history, churning out five EPs in a brief two-year span and only getting to their debut full-length five years later. Thankfully, Church of the Dead sounds like it could have easily been released a year or two after their last EP, as it works in their familiar style of crusty, dirty Death Metal with old-school ruthlessness and a Punk-fueled attitude that spits in the face of ideas like melody or accessibility. There are a few moments that reminded me of Bolt Thrower, and "Nekrovulture" stands out as being particularly up-tempo and punky, but for the most part this debut is just more of the rolling and relentless formula that they've always used, and doing it as well as ever. At only 32 minutes, this is pretty short, but every minute of it is well worth listening to.
