A I think of this kind of music as crypt metal. It's not that it's death metal, but that it's death's metal.

And this band... shoot. Excellent.

Aaron J. Waters Apocalyptic Death Metal at its finest. Really good stuff with flashbacks of Immolation and Cryptopsy whilst still keeping things fresh and nasty. Love it! Favorite track: Blind Idiot God.

flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) Listen to those drums.  That bass kick is so merciless that these guys must go through a lot of heads.  The blackened, Portal-esque guitar lines build plenty of ominous atmosphere, but it is the finishing touches of the cymbal patterns and tom fills that really make the entire experience pop.  The vocals are as harrowing as ever in their reverb-ridden deep grunts and disarming eruptions of blackened shrieks. Favorite track: Blind Idiot God.
