Closing Thoughts: Brutal death metal appears to have some of my favorite instrumentals in all of metal by quite a long shot! The vocals reminded me of Demilich but not as off the wall. This album is really heavy, has some great riffs, phenomenal drums, and is an overall joy to listen to

If you like slamming, brutal death metal or want to get into it then this is problably the best starting point for you. Although this kind of music might be a little too bare bones for me personally, i can't help but headbang to every slimy and disgusting riff on offer and the tempo changes throughout the entire album is a good way to break up the monotiny.
