The music to be found here is certainly fierce and tenacious, living up to the title of the album. There is a need to perform aggressively, but within solid structure. The band put together blast beats in a fashion that is appealing and doesn't become monotonous. It is quite credible to the band that they are able to avoid the potential of becoming generic for the most part. Fans of the style of Obituary or Morbid Angel should find a lot to enjoy here, for example. In fact, there's a solid cover of "Day of Suffering" to be found.
There are enough shifts and changes to pull the listener into what's being performed consistently throughout. An example of the ability of the band to morph as they progress is "Mental Retardation", which brings about new tempos and progressions throughout its running length. No matter how much Resurrected changes, they are able to maintain a reasonable amount of groove. There is a little bit of room to improve and reach up into slightly more innovative ideas, but the band has most of the right ingredients together. The performances are all tight, particularly in the guitar department. The vocals are a little raspy, but manage to fit well with the remainder of the music present.
So with crisp performances, how can they take things to the next level? More interesting bridges or solo sections would enhance the overall quality of the disc as a whole. The band seems to be following paths that have been taken many times, but in the end do a fairly solid job adding their own touches to mix. This comes recommended in particular to fans of the bands already name-dropped.
