Originally independently released, this is the third album from Californian thrashers Merciless Death. Their sound seems to constantly be changing, each of their 3 albums has a totally different vibe and this time around they seem to be channeling some 80’s death metal like Necrophagia which has warped their brand of thrash metal in a new and interesting way.
Everything here is much more stripped back, raw and direct than anything they’d done prior. This album also seems to have completely split opinion among Merciless Death fans, some hate it, some like it, Fenriz recommended it – me personally? I like it a lot and hope they continue down their own path of always looking to create a new sound, just like the best bands did in the 1980’s.
