Rise To Ruin
posted on 9/2007 By:
A competent and substantial bottom end trademark sound once again generated by Tue Madsen. A nearly identical sound compared to the recent La Muerte.
Slightly improved by means of more memorable vocal patterns. Speedier tempo and more aggressive death metal riffing are apparent. Gorefest has built their name on a broad death'n'roll foundation, and manage to sustain it while pouring a bit more sugar in the death metal cup. "Babylon's Whores" and "Speak When Spoken To" present evidence for this theory. Of course, monster grooves remain firmly rooted in the ground. Refer to "A Grim Charade" & "Murder Brigade" for a prompt neck snapping.
Gorefest has a strongpoint in stirring up death'n'roll grooves, and the group successfully speeds things up this time around with a tight result. Songs are crafted with riffs & vocals as the centerpieces, and continue to be the main power generators. I assume they will continue to use this formula well into the future.
Another purchase-worthy offering from a group that continues to deliver what they have been known for for many years. Gorefest stick to their recipe and spring very few surprises. They are a band known for their dominating vocals and powerful grooves, and Rise to Ruin is no different. Shooting from the hip, these guys will always be good at what they do. Recommended.
"Babylon's Whores" → Devastating beginning with blast beats and harmonics. Bulldozing slowdown @ 2:15.
"Speak When Spoken To"→ Enjoyable death speed riffing with guest vocals from an unknown source.
"A Grim Charade"→ Sledgehammer to the skull groove. Clenched fist "chorus".
"Murder Brigade"→ Breakdown @ 1:10 confuses the local college kids.
"The End Of It All"→ Sawzall death metal riff @ 2:43 is supreme.
