The third album from Finnish deathmongers Wrathrone sees them doing what they do best: making heavy, Bolt Thrower-inspired Death Metal that's brutal, simple, and old school as hell. That's not to say they're a mere clone act, however, for while Bolt Thrower focused on avalanches of skull-crushing riffs and relentless drumming, Wrathrone take a more varied approach to their songwriting. For example, the album opener "When the Knife Cuts Deep" storms out of the speakers like an army of zombies similar to what Grave used to do while "Web of Lies" sounds like the mutant bastard of Demigod and Six Feet Under, and the even inject a good bit of rock on album closer "Sane-Insane", making for a varied and entertaining album throughout. Yeah, none of what they do is super original, but Wrathrone clearly don't give a gosh darn fuck about that! They're here to make old-school Death Metal, no more, no less, and if they keep doing it this well, then I'll keep giving their albums a spin.
