LANDMINE MARATHON / SCARECROW: Split: CD

May 26, 2008

Landmine Marathon is pretty standard death-metally stuff, but Scarecrow fuggin’ rules! Very heavy early Metallica influence, even down to some of the chord progressions. Not that that’s bad; I was completely undone with pleasure. Imagine Metallica from the Kill ‘Em All-era with a wee bit more rock‘n’roll in the concoction and a vocalist who sings in a more standard everyman fashion than the gruff and raspy Hetfield. Landmine Marathon: they were okay. Scarecrow: awesome.
