Reverend Kill - _His Blood, Our Victory_
(Independent, 2009)
by: Quentin Kalis (6.5 out of 10)
Reverend Kill burst forth with self-penned "Canadian frontier metal", that when dissected is essentially a paean to the melancholic and melodic tones of contemporary Vikings Amon Amarth in their latter days. There are echoes of other bands, but the Viking grandmasters resonate most strongly. For an independent release, the production is good, with guitars high in the mix (as they ought to be) and an audible bass. It would be unfair to expect a similar mastery of heaviness and melodic sensibility as the aforementioned Swedes, but they do possess a nascent compositional skill that bodes well for future endeavours. Provided that skill is developed, of course -- the songs are similarly structured and proceed at a near uniform pace, pleasant enough in isolation, but can be monotonous if heard in its entirety.
