First of all, if you’re a big fan of the Jesus, you probably shouldn’t be reading this. Heathen powers activated? Good. Vital Remains have put out the best black/death metal album of the year with this one. I mean… c’mon… Glen Benton from Deicide on vocals? The standard to which all other death metal growlers aspire? With amazing drum work and viscous distortion? Plus, the anthemic “Disciples of Hell” is a rare glimpse of Andrew W.K. style root-fifth-octave stadium rock burned over brimstone, backed with impossibly evil vocals and the coolest double-kick bridge you’ve ever heard.
