Drawn And Quartered - To Kill Is Human CD
DRAWN AND QUARTERED (Washington, USA) - To Kill Is Human CD (2018 Krucyator Re-issue) This is what I call "perfect Death Metal"! Dark and brutal riffs à la IMMOLATION, MORBID ANGEL, INCANTATION, deep vocals comparable to good old Craig Pillard (ex – INCANTATION, DISCIPLES OF MOCKERY), driving tempo and an overall sinister atmosphere, that makes you feel like sitting in a crypt surrounded by the carcasses of young women.
Under the banner "Death Metal against Christianity" the Seattle four-piece creates blasphemous hymns since 1996 and in 1999 "To Kill Is Human", DRAWN AND QUARTERED’s debut saw the light of day. Stoic chords are sawing their way slowly yet unstoppably through the bones of the music. The riffs are heavy and dripping with the putrid stench of corpses rotting in their graves. The main chops are accompanied by some sinister lead guitar work that most of the time is used to build a counterpart to the relentless riff attacks. All harmonies have some kind of melancholic or eerie vibe giving the music a haunting and gloomy overall atmosphere.
The primitive and filthy overall character fits to the music lending it an extra portion of rawness. Everyone looking for a more than solid piece of Death Metal should not hesitate to check out “To Kill is Human”. For long-time fans of the band the purchase is anyway obligatory. **originally published on metal-archives.com by Edmund Sackbauer** Krucyator Productions – KP018
