The album I've been waiting for
on March 14, 2013
Back in my High School days Effigy of the Forgotten was on high rotation for me. When they "broke up" in 1998 after releasing what I thought was their swan song Despise the Sun, I was bummed. DtS was a ridiculously good CD, although short, and I was left wanting more of something that I thought would never come. Luckily the band got back together in 2003 with some line-up changes, but the albums that came out, while great in their own right, weren't the follow up to their early stuff I was waiting for.
THIS is the CD I've been waiting for! When I heard a short preview I was very excited, then I saw the video for As Grace Descends and I couldn't have been happier. Its fast, the bass is articulate (my biggest beef with Blood Oath- no bass)Dave Culross's drumming is dead on, and the production is superb. When it comes to death/grind you are looking for something that just gets you pumped. Pinnacle of Bedlam is the soundtrack to some serious face punching.
None (unless you are too weak to handle it)
Bottom line: this is what the emotion of anger sounds like.
