Okay, maybe this stuff is really modest, I would prefer 2 original tracks of 3. But the titletrack is a real spectacle of 4 minutes full of delirium, so it’s sufficient to introduce the future things to come. It shows a death metal so intense to be very hysterical, also thanks to sudden tempo shifts alternated between devastating blast – beats and tupa – tupas. At a certain point, there is a slowdown full of groove to moving incredibly your ass. The song works brilliantly without a solo, melodies or technical bullshits, increasing the intensity also through screaming growls that are truly wild (but not too much as in the Chilean Horrifying, of course!). But above all there is a frightful introduction with a climax consisting of 3 guitars, two of them engulfs the listener in a vortex of horror and fear. Then, there are beautiful death bells in the finale, making the concept in the clearest way.
All right, the rest is all composed by covers, as I wrote before. Of all them, I appreciated above all “Hang the Pope”, that has now a darker atmosphere in a death metal way, very good job! The other one, “Revel in Flesh”, is simply close to the original, and I notice that everyone is covering the Nihilist. This fact is not bad, but I don’t believe that really personalizing the covers can be a shame to the Masters, don’t you think?
