Killing Addiction
Shores of Oblivion
Company: Xtreem Music
Release: 2016
Genre: Death
Reviewer: Greg Watson

Blackened Death metal from the swamps of Florida
Comments:
Killing Addiction's MCD "Shores of Oblivion" is a solid mix of death and black metal that is the perfect length and captures the best of both styles. Crunchy guitars mix with frigid and swirling riffs to give you that blackened death feel. Using both black and death vocals can be a bit tricky but Killing Addiction utilize the dual styles quite well. There's nothing earth shaking here evolution wise but the four tracks offered are really solid and provide a good listening experience.
