Ok no it's 2015 but it sure sounds like 1993. 1993 was a great year: Unleashed - Across The open Sea, Cannibal Corpse - Hammer smashed Face, Entombed - Wolverine Blues, Macabre - Sinister Slaughter, and fuck a shit load of classics but no Amorphis that year what a bummer...
Anyway I love this, it's like Unleashed crossed with Amorphis, crossed with a dark power. This Finnish band (if you know me you know I live for Finnish death metal) is the shit! Dirty, brutal, and truly sincere death metal the way I like it.
They have a clear and purposed doom vibe to them. I truly feel like the world is coming to an end by the time "Funeral Odyssey" starts playing which is the sixth track on the album. This is probably my favorite track. It reminds me of early Amorphis, crossed with Unleashed and that my friends pumps me up!
After about the fourth listen through you realize how good these guys actually are. The track listing was well planned from one piece into another ( I say this because so many bands suck at ordering their tracks - it does make a difference).
This year there has been a lot of releases going for the early 90's death metal that fail horribly, but these guys succeed and it's because they aren't just going for the early 1990's, this is what they do, this is who they are, this is what death metal and brutal doom metal is all about, It's damn interesting and it accidentally sounds like 1990's. In closing I tell you, no I command you to buy this, not just a download but a actual CD so you get the full experience in your hands.
