Here’s a fine combo offer for the latest albums by old school death metal bands LIVE BURIAL and COME BACK FROM THE DEAD on 8-panel digipak CD format. The label mates complement each other and the latter even add a bit of crust to spice things up. Their latest release is a delectable, filthy slab of music that is highly recommended.
Death metal band from the UK LIVE BURIAL emerge with an astounding album that melds the best elements of classic death metal from all over. There’s this undeniable rugged and scathing quality that is contrasted with the dark, brooding and often twisted structures. Painful vocals soar over rumbling, heaving parts that hearken back to the days of early DEATH, MORGOTH, ASPHYX and even FLESHCRAWL. There are emotive strains shimmering in a desolate, forsaken landscape. LIVE BURIAL make it all work and it comes through effortlessly. They are forging a powerful sound that will echo through the ancient corridors of this style. ‘Unending Futility’ is an accomplished album that will hold appeal to any fan of well-written death metal and must not be missed.
