Serpentine Dominion (2016)

These musicians are very comprehensive, they know what they want and thus their sound isn't the usual technical pretentiousness, but although less dexterity put into this work, there is plenty of room for instrumental technicality aided by awesome feeling of each instrument. The structure of each track is layered out uniquely; sometimes you might get the idea that these musicians are trying to test their artistic creativeness by incorporating a lot of different techniques. The riffs are layered out progressively and brutal, staying at an intense comfort zone helped by the incredibly powerful singing of Corpsegrinder Fisher. I don't give a fuck if he's a sell out or not , on this album he kicks ass.Drums are what make this album killer; there is a reasonable amount of skill injected into this material, although some of it is a reflection of how powerful drum lines can be without the need to create something uberfast or very spontaneous by nature. Serpentine Dominion also help define melody, although to a more educated level of a spiritual acknowledgement of the music rather than a static one. The guitar solos are extremely savage. Demonstrating again, that extreme metal could be derived from almost anything which has potential. Featuring : George Corpsegrinder (Cannibal Corpse) vocals, Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage) guitars, bass, vocals and Shannon Lucas (The black dahlia murder) drums.
