Crushing Melo-Death from this supergroup
Comments:
Echelon's "The Brimstone Aggrandizement" is a solid piece of melodic death metal that just crushes from the jump. Dave Ingram, formerly of Bolt Thrower and Benediction, delivers what may be his most inspired vocal performance and the riffs on this will have you grinning like an idiot as you are whisked back to the good old days of death metal. This is one of the better death metal releases I have heard in a while. Vocals, grooving riffs, melodic solos and overall destruction, what more could you ask for?
Recommended for fans of:
Bolt Thrower, Entombed, At The Gates
