ACT OF IMPALEMENT - Infernal Ordinance
Caligari :: CD :: 12
The crushing 2nd full-length by this U.S. band. Eschewing some of the variety of its full-length predecessor, "Infernal Ordinance" surges forward with more songwriting finesse. Every riff is given maximal room to inflict damage, every segment carried forward to its conclusion, and every transition seamless. That the power-trio can still show traces of Cianide, Bolt Thrower, Autopsy, Prophecy of Doom and even Archgoat -often, all in the same song- and make it meld together consistently and compellingly is no small feat. Add to that their characteristically gutted guitar and bass tone, and "Infernal Ordinance" verily becomes its namesake. Very recommended!
