Rated 3.2/5 (64%) (5 Votes)

This looked like a Doom album, but no, this is a pure Death Metal album from a new French band, made up of members and ex-members of little-known acts like Hypnosis and Silent Opera. Whatever brought them together to make this album, I applaud it.

Straight-up, intense, and tight, this is a blast of hybrid death with Florida-styled speed and aggression backed by that thick Swedish guitar sound. The riffs are tight and percussive, the production is thick, and the vocals are a deep, Suffocation-styled gurgle. In fact, Suffocation seem to be a definite influence here, along with meaner Euro bands like Bolt Thrower or Carnage. I'm glad to see no melodic flourishes nor any prog-jazz pustulating - this is nothing but blistering, hammering, ball-crunching Death Metal right through. I like it.
