War and Conflict

Rated 3.33/5 (66.67%) (3 Votes)

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.
