All Shall Perish is a fresh outlook on current and boring metal. With demonic growling, brutal mids, terrirfying his, and even girlish screeching, the vocals alone are enough to drive parents insane. I can't tell, but from what I can hear, he also inhale brees on songs. I can; t tell the difference most of the time. The guitarists are both extremely talented with pick sweeping and solos behind nonstop riffs galore. How they do it, they only know. The drums are amazingly clear among the awesomeness around them. He keeps his own with double kicks and overall awesome riffs within a deeply thought out album. Each intstrument of disaster is mixed beuatifully. I have not heard this good of a death metal album since, I can't remember!
Lyrics — 9
The lyrics appear to just spill from nowhere. Brutally written hand in hand with the music to blend into what might be compared to brass knuckles on an ogres hand. However, it gets a little old after 2-4 times. The singers skills are second-to-none. I have never heard such a vocal range in one song than from anyone else. Why this guys aren't as big as Cannibal Corpse or Lamb Of God is beyond me.
Overall Impression — 10
This album is definately a step up from Hate, Malice, Revenge. Clearer, more thought out song progression and structure. Well mixed and drawn out perfect timing with all instruments make this band a must see live. Most impressively is the song Eradication. It showcases all of the members' talents while not overshadowing each other. The music video itself is a work of art, though, admittedly, not the most original video from the death metal scene. This album is definately a must-have for people who enjoy any kind of dark metal. A headbanger's delight, a mosher's dream, and a hardcore dancer's fantasy. This album has something for the demon in you!
