This started out okay, but got worse as it went on, and by the time I turned it off in disgust, around track 6, it was utter crap. Resurrecturis are an Italian Death Metal band with some hardcore and thrash influence, and while they show some potential at first, they mostly just suck.

There are so many Death Metal bands in this world, we don't really need any more unless they are going to do something different with the genre, and by 'different' I do not mean 'stupid'. Adding Hardcore sounds and clean singing that sounds horribly like Wes Scantlin does not qualify as different, but it does land you quite nicely in the 'stupid' category. Mostly this band just alternates decent Death Metal blasts with more Hardcore passages infested with godawful vocals and screamed profanities. And what's with the album title? I am pretty forgiving of English-as-a-second-language-induced ineptitudes of titles and lyrics, but "The Cuckoo Clocks Of Hell"? That is just silly. The lyrics and song titles are pretty typical emotive melodeath crap, but that title gets some sort of prize. Oh, and the cover pic looks like Ghostfaced Killah impersonating a nun. The height of ridiculousness.

I doubt Resurrecturis will like this review, but then I didn't like their music. And unless you urgently need yet another pseudo-death hardcore CD in your collection, I would suggest you not waste time with this one, as there is really no compelling reason for this album to exist at all.
