DRAWN AND QUARTERED
DRAWN AND QUARTERED
Extermination Revelry
(Moribund Records)
46:15min

Whether you were disappointed by the new MORBID ANGEL, can't wait until INCANTATION pop up with a new CD or just feel the need for some excellent brutal, blasphemous and dark Death Metal, "Extermination Revelry" by Seattle warriors DRAWN AND QUARTERED should be your first choice! Their second album after "To Kill Is Human", released in 1999, is just great!!! Musically the four guys blend old IMMOLATION, INCANTATION and MORBID ANGEL with their own, unique feeling for small effective hooks, sparse, slighly melodic leads and deep, natural sounding vocals that remind me of Ross Dolan and Craig Pillard at the same time. Since the production is damn good, too, I wonder what more can you ask for? Songs like 'Embrace The Darkness', 'Kill For My Master' featuring a very surprising break that's just godly, the vicious 'The Ovens Await' and the hymnic 'Abyss Behind My Gaze' are well-structured and highly addictive tracks fans of the aforementioned acts should love at instant. Although originality may not be DRAWN AND QUARTERED's strength - in 'Necrophile Decapitator' they even pay a very obvious tribute to the "Onward To Golgota" guitar sound - their concise songwriting and melodic feeling during the leads sets them apart from their inspirators. Alongside the new VITAL REMAINS, MANTICORE and MONSTROSITY, "Extermination Revelry" is one of my personal favourites this year and I bet whoever loves timeless Death Metal delicacies will love the new DRAWN AND QUARTERED! It's a full-frontal blasting, sinister and aggressive masterpiece. Visit www.moribundcult.com and listen to an MP3 of 'Kill For My Master', you will love it!
