Helgrind - Denial - 2005 --Chaoslord
I swear that the third track on the album "Prophecy of Destruction" has Lemmy Kilmister himself singing but that isn't the case. Musically this album is really tight and sounds damn good. The riffs are headbanging friendly and the drums and bass fill in nicely to bring it all together. The guitars sound like most from a Slayer album without some of the speed and ferociousness present that Slayer pulls off. The most interesting song on the album is the song "Albert Fish" about the real life cannibal of the same name. The song content is just what I would have expected on a grindcore album so I feel a little redeemed with that song. But this album really surprised me with its content and the music. The only complaint I have with the album is with the length of the songs. Most of them are 2 to 2:40 in length and just leaves me wanting more. While that may be what the band was going for, I still wish the songs were just a little longer to satisfy my craving. If you can track this CD down give it a listen I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
