Death metal/grind at its most ferocious best.Lifetaker are now another fave band of mine and Thanks to Konstantin for the copy of his other cool band, Wolves carry my Name.
Favorite track: Todesdrang.
a punishingly heavy, yet startlingly soulful album. “beaten” chugs from start to finish and reaches a harrowing crescendo; brendan’s “I AM FREE” reverberates around in my dreams. the cover of “no dreaming” had my jaw on the floor the first time i heard it. but “relent?” the entire runtime of this song, i’m compelled by some otherworldly force to scream my soul out right along to the lyrics. not to mention the incredible riffs; the choruses remind me of a blackened ulcerate, e milesmccollough
Unfortunately, this is a prime example of an album with a strong opener and a weak rest of the album. The production is excellent; the instruments are half decent; the vocals are okay, but the lyrics are downright cringey. Heads for the Dead has no right to be as popular as they are within the metal underground, to be frank. Camel
