Apocalyptic - _Apocalyptic_
by: Paul Schwarz (2 out of 5)
This demo contains death metal which is set very solidly in the American template of the style. Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, these are the bands which have most influenced Apocalyptic, or at least the bands whose influence they have shown in their own recorded material the most. The riffs are generally derivative, although a somewhat rolling drum style allows for the occasional break or fill to be of some interest. The production isolates drums, vocals and guitars from each other, leading to a disjointed feel. One bonus is the occasional solo: some of these are not just standard widdling-by-numbers but actually have had some thought put into them. The vocals, unfortunately, only enhance the disjointed, uninteresting feel by being almost completely the same throughout the entire demo. There is hope for Apocalyptic, but they have a long way to go and a lot of catching up to do.
