If you start ejaculating when hearing the words 'old school death metal', you are reading the right review. Dutch soil seems to be perfect for this style. If you don't know that yet, you can't be a real old school freak. With ex-Sinister member Adrie Kloosterwaard as chief these Dutch have forged their third album. They sound a bit more melodic on this album than on its predecessors, but they didn't hand in any speed or aggression.

The most eye-catching part on this album are in my opinion the drum capacities of Paul Beltman. The tempo of the bass drums he develops in some songs is astonishing. I provoke you to count the beats per minute, it probably will not be a world record, but it should be close. The songs are brutal, have the right groove and are rather technical. Jörg Uken (God Dethroned, Dew-Scented) gave the album the right mix and that makes this album indeed the best one from the band so far. Adrie's growls and grunts are what we are used from him, low and brutal.  I am not going to tell something about every single song, only that the first tunes of the song "Trapped in Heresy" are similar to Slayers "Hell Awaits".

Death metal adapts know what they must do on May 27th.
