And again Old School Death Metal. This time created by a young band from Mexico and the leader of the pack, Miguel Angeles (who seems to be the son of Miguel Angeles Senior (guitarist of Darkcreed and Foeticide), seems to be a huge fan of the Swedish scene. On the “…Of Death” EP they have covered the Dismember tune “On Frozen Fields” and on this album, their debut, Miguel thought to honor Edge of Sanity with his version of “Livin’ Hell”. The “…Of Death” EP was a nice listen and still is. Nothing fancy or an EP that will boost the reputation of Death Metal bands from Mexico, but the release was an adequate one. On the EP Miguel had a band around him while on “Angels Burned” it was mostly a solo adventure, but the musical debauchery still remains (!) Old School Death Metal. As said, there are quite some Swedish ideas with a wink towards the early 90s US Death Metal scene. The riffs, played in both mid- as up-tempo pace, don’t really stick into my mind, nor are the songs in general. Maybe my expectations were a bit too high as I hoped for some progression after the EP. It’s of the same quality, nothing wrong with that, but it’s “just” a nice listen. (Ricardo)
