DIABOLICAL MASQUERADE: Death: CD

Whoa!! This is really f’n good metal. Seems almost like a soundtrack to a violent fantasy realm warrior movie. Due in part to the orchestration and ambient embellishments that creep in and out that create an epic larger-than-life sound. Fortunately the music isn’t bogged down in this, and retains the heavy presence of abrasive guitars and earth-shaking percussion. The vocals are twisted with a demented grind style somewhere in between Carcass and Brutal Truth. There’s 61 tracks total, but with the music throwing curve balls here and there, this is far from redundant. In short, this is awesome.
