Crucifixion
Desert Of Shattered Hopes
[Mausoleum]


Somewhat atmospheric death metal. Heavy, but not the typical "brutal" American death metal. The production on this disc is pretty cool. It sounds like it was recorded in a concert hall - expansive. All musicians are talented and there is also some skilled leadwork on here, but it is not annoyingly flashy - reminds me, oddly enough, of No Place For Disgrace-era Flotsam & Jetsam. I'm trying to compare them to somebody, but I'm having a hard time, so that must be good. I want to say that they are a mix of early Brazilian death metal and pre-Human era Death . . yea, I think that kinda works.
