Trenches of the Netherworld
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Usurpress is a new Swedish death metal act, releasing their debut LP "Trenches of the Netherworld" to the masses. "Trenches" is a fairly solid piece of death metal destruction. What sets this band apart for me is the element of doom metal that they infuse into the songs. It will go from blast beats to slow, sludgy riffs in the blink of an eye. The album is pretty decent and most death metal fans will appreciate the effort the band puts into the release. Hopefully the next release will have a better sound, production wise to it. Overall, not bad for first timers.
