War and Conflict


This is the third album from Canadian band Reverend Kill, and they are going it alone by releasing it on their own label, having apparently parted ways with Painkiller Records. I thought their last disc His Blood Our Victory was decent but not really inspired, but I find this much improved. Reverend Kill have really stepped up their songwriting, producing sharper, more enjoyable songs that actually go somewhere rather than just repeat, and they have added a lot of dynamic with a more varied vocal approach and much more riff-based songwriting. The production is still a bit muted, but it's also very warm and live-sounding, with a lot of character. An excellent disc by a band finally hitting their stride and doing something in the Death Metal field besides imitate.
