Upon Infliction - To Escape is to Suffer - 2006 - Crash Music
Upon Infliction’s most notable characteristic is that they’re a bit more technically adept than many other bands in this style. Ringler’s no Muhammed Suicmez, but he does play fairly technical riffs. In addition, vocalist Brian Mygrant’s voice is pretty versatile – instead of a low, constant growl, Mygrant changes his pitch and style often enough to keep things interesting. A final highlight of “To Escape is to Suffer” comes in the form of a Death cover – the Upon Infliction quartet does “Mutilation” justice, and would probably have made Chuck proud.
So, while they aren’t doing anything especially phenomenal, Upon Infliction is still a worthwhile band to check out. All the pieces of the puzzle are present and fit together nicely for this band and “To Escape is to Suffer” is the result of this cohesion. Despite not being spectacular, the album is solid, enjoyable, and a worthy addition to any death metal fan’s collection.
