Sometimes, keeping things real and simple are the best route for accomplishing ground-breaking metal. These day's there are so many bands that try to incorporate new styles to expand the Metal realm and in most cases, it doesn't work out. For Murder Squad, old-school style death metal is their calling to bury the hatchet in the senseless amount of new-style, boring, death metal bands on the scene today.
With a back-to-basis approach in sound, song structure, lyrics, and production, Murder Squad's sophomore effort, "Ravenous Murderous", is a death metal album for true fans of death metal new and old. Featuring members of Entombed and Dismember, "Ravenous Murderous" sound like a solid mix between Left Hand Path/Clandestine-era Entombed, Like An Ever Flowing Stream-era Dismember and early Obituary.
If you like your metal blasting at 500 mph, then go listen to Krisiun or Anaal Nathrakh, but if you like thrashing mad mid-paced low-tuned death metal, then Murder Squad will keep your eardrums working overtime with it's ruthless, no-holds-barred metal assault! Songs such as "Disturbing The Freaks", "Army Of Maggots" and "Hellish Blasphemy" will have you breaking out your old metal t-shirts and reliving the gory (sic) days of the rebellious metal attitude.
