Devastated Graves - The Morbid Celebration

Rated 4.36/5 (87.27%) (22 Votes)

This is a debut album of grim and grimy Blackened Death Metal from one-man US act Nocturnal Graves. This is very stripped-down, with a rough production job reminiscent of Krisiun's earlier works. In fact this whole thing has a South American sound to it, with the Satanic imagery, evil growled vocals, and some quite decent Slaytanic riffage run through that recorded-in-a-garage guitar sound so familiar to fans of old-school Sepultura or Sarcofago. The riffs here are solid, with a Bolt Thrower sound to them on occasion. The songwriting is not exactly inspired, but this is an enjoyable disc nevertheless. If you like primitive Death Metal like they used to make back in the late 80s then this is a disc to treasure.
