Fast, Brutal, and Technical, the very definition of the term heavy. Lifeless design is an excellent CD filled with complex, and technical riffs Brutal drumming, and Raw inhuman vocals. The vocals range from a high pitched shriek, to a deep growl. The bass is subtle, but audible, and very impressive. The guitar riffs are very technical and chaotic containing fast licks, and slow brutal chord progressions. The drums are for the most part blast beats, and double bass pedalling. However this album isn't without its flaws.
The production value is very low, and alot of the songs have static which makes it harrder to here some of the more technical riffs. also occasionally the music sounds the same as other songs on the cd. But the worst part of the cd is the lack of guitar solos, both guitarists are obviously very talented and could probably make some awesome virtuoso guitar solos.
This is an awesome cd, and every death metal fan should have it. This is only their first cd, and if the can fix these problems in their next cd It will be classic. There are few death metal bands that sound like Iscariot so they have alot of potential
