Angelcorpse - _The Inexorable_
(Osmose, 1999)
by: Pedro Azevedo (8 out of 10)
Having recently had the chance of seeing Angelcorpse live [in a concert to be reviewed in CoC #45] makes me appreciate something about _The Inexorable_: it works really well live. Either storming out of digital media or delivering music of similar calibre live, Angelcorpse are one intensely aggressive band who are able to create a very strong sound and make something good with it. Angelcorpse don't sound like your typical American death metal band (even the vocals are more snarled than grunted), reminding me only of some of Morbid Angel's peculiar characteristics with a great deal of speed and brutality on top. During tracks such as "Stormgods Unbound" and "Begotten (Through Blood and Flame)", the band manages to reach remarkable intensity and fury while keeping the songs memorable. However, my main problem with _The Inexorable_ is that several other tracks have trouble standing out and actively adding something more to the record. Still, though not every song is remarkably memorable, quality is generally at least quite good and _The Inexorable_ is definitely very consistent and solid in its ruthless and well-delivered aggression.
