The record was released with an in store promotion campaign across major cities in America with the band signing copies of all of its catalog to date.
The band began to feel an upswing in audience attendance and peoples determination to let hard rock live. After playing their last headlining date in Detroit, MI November the band returned to their respective homes and planned a new live release to encompass performances of material spanning the years. Sadly, this album must also serve as a tribute to original Slaughter guitarist Tim Kelly -RIP, who was killed in a car accident.
The band rehearsed with Jeff Blando during the last week of May with no other goal in mind than to continue and make this work. The warmth and support of the audience was nothing short of overwhelming. The band several gigs later realized that the fans would rather feel and hear the music than see it fade away. Album Rating: 4. I've been meaning to get some At the Gates and this sounds like something I could get into.
And speaking of Gothenburg, I should have an Arch Enemy review up pretty soon I had a bunch of tracks off this, and they were quite amazing. I wanted to review this.
Oh well. I personally like it a lot. I can see why people think it's overrated, but I still love it. Good review, I downloaded this album, it's not that good. Album Rating: 5. Some good memorable tunes here.
Much of the material is very catchy, but all of it is just very simple and toned-down from their past work. This Message Edited On I have heard Suicide Nation, and I love it. The track starts slow, and then progresses to Corporate Death growling the lines of one of the actual Zodiac letters, before roaming into the upbeat chorus that is reminiscent to songs from the 60's that will stay in your head and force you to sing along. Like the previous album Gloom, most of the songs start with singing and then well thought-out instrumental parts.
The production is excellent, but not too clean of course. The guitar sounds gritty and raw, and the bass is really audible and energetic. The drums are my favorite part of the band musically, because Dennis the Menace is one of the best drummers I've heard. The drumming has improved since Gloom, and focusing more on double bass then blastbeats. If you are a fan of thrash metal, grindcore or death metal, you should pick it up. You won't have any regrets about it. Wow, just wow.
Macabre is an amazing band all around. This album is, in my opinion, their best work. I'll start off by saying Corporate Death is one of the sickest, ugliest, and harshest vokillists in the metal underground. His vocals are high, completely comprehensible, and harsh as FUCK. I have never heard someone sing with such intensity since Kevin Sharp from Brutal Truth. His lyrics are also very intelligent, and very funny at the same time.
The guitar work on this album is stunning. Brutal riffs, thrashy, speedy, and awesome. The solos are very clean sounding, and the mix on this album is so great you can hear the solo and everything else going on at the same time perfectly.
Dennis The Menace does an excellent job on this cd. None of Slaughter's characters are pure and Lena Adams, especially, is deeply flawed. Her attack in the last book? This book really kept me guessing right up until the end. I love this author her stories are very complex and the depth she gives to her characters is so amazing.
Women who have been abused are very difficult to understand psychologically. Lena's character really shows the strong desire to feel normal again but her inability to get there and tendency to isolate herself.
This book really shines a light on what victims of violent crime go through emotionally. Thelmajean Jan 14, This A lot of the annoyances came from me not reading the previous books. That's what happens when you buy books as they're on sale :P So, I tried to look past those. I'm not sure I appreciate how some aspects of Lena as a survivor of horrific sexual abuse were depicted. But, I'm not a survivor myself, and I feel.. But, the entire books is complicated and messy in its relationships, which I greatly appreciate.
