4.0 excellentRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | September 13th 15

I suppose I could start this soundoff with a rant about how a lot of OSDM revival is a bunch of surface-level trite, but when bands like Cruciamentum exist, why even bother? I mean, the riffs are there, the passion is there, the aesthetic is there, everything's there. These guys understand that slapping a really pointy band logo on a macabre album cover and then proceeding to rip off Morbid Angel or Obituary does not a death metal album make. You gotta breathe this stuff, you know? It starts out decently enough, but once "Tongues Of Nightshade" begins, things get serious. It's furious, full of riffs and blast beats, and above all, it's fun. That's what I think is so cool about this: here's a group of guys who obviously get the style and love what it's about, even if it's old. They take that and run with it, and manage to make something old sound fresh and entertaining.

I knew this wouldn't disappoint. In a year where dm has vomited forth too much disappointment, let these Brits crush all your rigidly constructed death metal 2015 picks and hammer you over the head with what a death metal album should sound like!

Really good stuff, only too much DM centered for my taste.

4.5 superbWretchedCacophony | May 6th 19

Album rips. Some really good riffs and vocals are pretty good, but probably the weakest aspect of this album. Stand out tracks are #2 and #5

Bump

0.0 Black Daimon | August 30th 15

No other death metal album captures the genre's history as effectively as this one. With sounds
that are rooted strongly both in the European and US death scenes, Cruciamentum have created the defining
"old school" death metal album for modern times.
