UNBURIED: Primitive, Raw, Underground: CD

One-man death metal project from a different Matt Pike. While I absolutely respect the DIY ambition, this is just isn’t good. It sounds like Matt might have some guitar chops, but the drumming, singing, and recording are just so, so, so bad. For the love of Lucifer, use a pop filter on the mic! Every consonant in every word of every line of every song sounds like I’m being spit at through a blown speaker. Matt, please find a band to play guitar for. You have some decent ideas but you need help with pretty much everything else. –Chad Williams (Self-released, unburiedbandmerch.wixsite.com/website)
