Destroying Divinity-Hollow Dominion (2015)

Straightforward death metal. Features a conventional use of song structures and riffs especially technical but their punch and aggressiveness made everyone’s day. There is not one good reason to hate this if you are into death metal, that's for sure. It’s undeniable that they have a new level of complexity too, riffing is syncopated and attractive. All of this happens without compromising the evil and accelerated climate that governs their music, lower tones in guitars may not be a synonym of heaviness but it darkens enormously songs. Fast paced tremolo riffs. Production is polished, guitar distortion is not so raw but is still sharp and mindblowing. Bass guitar sounds louder, not as loud and crunchy as on the classic bands as Cannibal Corpse or Suffocation but it still adds some extra heaviness to the guitar riffs, which slay always.The last thing I want to point out is the drumming, a demolishing performance as well. Not bad at all !!
