This is a pretty kicking album of furious, almost grindy Death Metal from Ireland. This is the second album for Warpath, and it shows in the tight arrangements, sharp compositions, and the raw, pissed-off recording job. This is nothing a Death Metal fan has not heard – a bit of Dismember, a bit of Morbid Angel, the inevitable pinch of Bolt Thrower – but it is done well enough to be worth hearing. This is derivative, to be sure, but it is never boring. The vocals are an extremely one-dimensional grunt, and the recording is a bit overprocessed, so they sound dull and flat. This certainly could benefit from a vocalist who sounded more genuinely angry and had some emotion. Otherwise this is a relentless and solid execution of a reliable formula.
