Perdition Temple - The Tempter's Victorious [Death Metal]
Audio: Most songs around DR6, which is poor mastering. However, the mix is excellent. Bass is clearly audible and guitar notes are crisp. Drums have high treble, a bit unusual for this genre.
Songs: Here's the thing, every song is the same. This makes it more of a 'whole album at a time' listening experience. The album is perfect for working out or if you just need an extra kick in the mornings. Music is heavily influenced by Morbid Angel (especially the guitar solos). Having said that, 'Extinction Synagogue' is an outstanding song.
Instruments: The album is a total riff fest. The riffs are highly technical and might be too fast for some people (NOT ME).Special mention to vocals by Impurath, they draw more from black metal but sound completely in place with the music. The drums are surprisingly intricate, matching the guitars note for note with cymbals, snares, insane high-hat combos. The treble helps to make the drum work livid and pulsating, on a microscopic level.
Overall: This isn't an album that necessarily pushes boundaries or even create something unique, most of what you hear here is not original, but there is an insane amount of energy. At 37 minutes, there is little room for fat an almost every second goes by unwasted on filler riffs or fills.
Rating: ★★★★☆ 4/5
