The Cleansing
Feeding the Inevitable
Style: Brutal Death Metal
Release date: 23 May, 2011
Playing time: 38:14

Besides The Cleansing, Dawn of Demise is another death metal act from Denmark that is going to make the difference in the years to come. Not that they musically sound-a-like, but they are both acts that write good songs and play a good form of death metal. The Cleansing's music finds its roots in 90's US Death Metal. But it sure isn't a one on one copy; they add enough of other influences. The track that differs the most from the rest is "Processed for Contamination"; it is the slowest, almost doomy song.  

If you, like me, are a bit disappointed by the new Morbid Angel album and is longing for a real brutal death metal album, this is the one that can help you out. There are some similarities in the music with the death metal giants of the 90's. The vocals are low and brutal, the tempo high, with slowdowns every now and then and the musicians are technically skilled. Fortunately they put in some melody too, like for example in the track "Your Flesh, Your Curse". The drums are tight and if you are fond of blast-beats, you will find your parts here as well. Fans of the more brutal death metal will like this album. Fans of bands such as Malevolent Creation, Cannibal Corpse, Death, Morbid Angel, Benediction, Immolation, Deicide and lots of others that play the same kind of style can all find something they will like.
