Title: Revenge of the Monarch, the Kingdoom Cult
Label: Iron, Blood and Death Corporation
Style: Death Metal
Debut album from this Brazilian trio founded back in 2014, so with a 5 years experience one would expect something more than we actually get here. We're dealing with old-school, primitive, raw and simplistic Death Metal, categorization that might appeal some of you out there, but unfortunately the guitar riffs are way too repetitive to keep the listener attentive, and except for a few of them, they are too simple to make any difference. The drumming is also nothing to stand out, and when things get faster they tend to get sloppier, too... The vocals are ok, not versatile at all but aggressive and menacing as they should be. What I liked here and actually think the band should focus more on, are the few guitar leads and solos that really bring back the old-school Death Metal atmosphere, and a few outbursts of bass in front of the other instruments like wanting to show they better than the general sound of the band. Sorry for being harsh, but the riffs are way too unimpressive for the band to stand out from the huge amount of similar bands; in this case the sloppy logo actually tell something about their music, hopefully they'll change both.
