Crushing Belial - _Crushing Belial_
by: Adrian Bromley (4 out of 5)
Oh my, what is this? With a drum sound that makes the new Krisiun release sound like Nick Menza's fine work on _Rust in Peace_, UK indie death metal outfit unleashes a totally downtrodden, grotesquely poor drum sound that when grouped together with the menacing vocals and sharp death metal riffs seems to be nullified and work. Amazingly, while recorded in the guitarist's room on Cubase (anyone?), the flow of this sampler is pretty rock solid. The best track on this three-song sampler is the second, "Cleanse the Earth With the Blood of Martyrs". Hell, yeah! So as I sit here with this demo blaring, I am thinking to myself, "Imagine if this band gets into a basement to record -- or better yet -- a studio?" With determination to record the best demo they could with what they got, the strength of their spirit alone should make for an interesting follow-up album. I'm here waiting, guys.
