What do you get on this album? Well, old school death metal, crushing guitars, a deep, growling voice (plus here and there a few punk screams) and mosh pit inducing tempos. From opener and title track 'I Become Death', these guys drags you into a whirlpool of distorted riffs and pummeling drums. That song reminds me of Dismember, which is probably the reason why I like this album so much.
Yeah, I do, me, the one who stopped listening to death metal after the classics by Entombed, Sepultura, Death, Suffocation and the aforementioned Dismember. But what Hereza is currently blasting through my speakers, is the one album that drags me right back in. Fierce tempos, insane guitars and an immersive speed. You don't need anything else to start that blood-gushing death metal orgy.
No, take it from me. This is one of the greatest death metal albums I've heard in years. It comes with a relentless groove. Songs like ''Homo Homini Lupus Est' and 'Full Moon Slaughter' are awesome beatdowns and they are far from the only ones on this album. On the latter, even the brilliant Götheborg scene comes to mind, improving the overall quality and level of variation. If you are a fan of death metal, you need this. If you don't like it, you might want to reconsider your musical preferences...
