WHAT’S THE STORY?: The latest release from Atlanta death metal group Daath does not see them experiment with over-indulgent progressive rock tracks, and neither does it see them place style over substance. Truthfully, this record is a remorseless exposition of death metal that could transform even a timid golf caddy into a merciless lunatic possessed by the powers of mosh.

`Genocidal Maniac’ opens the album with down tempo brooding riffs that are then superseded by frantic drums and demonic vocals, before `Destruction Restoration’ and `Indestructible Overdose’ unveil thrash metal sensibilities that bear a conspicuous resemblance to old-school Slayer material.

In addition, `Exit Plan’ refuses to weaken the record’s intensity, as scintillating solos and rapid drumming converge to create three minutes of death metal magnificence, while `Cold Devotion’ is undoubtedly the album’s greatest track thanks to its thunderous intro and maliciously extreme vocals.

For those that are inclined towards the death metal genre, there are very few criticisms that can be levelled at Daath’s new self-titled release. However, it must be stated that the album is undisputedly focused on the death metal genre, meaning that individuals disinterested in fearsome vocals and frenetic musicianship should search elsewhere. Or, alternatively, they could observe Daath’s songs and recognise that their musical diet is deprived of vital death metal nutrients.

SOUNDS LIKE: At The Gates, Slayer, The Crown
