(Andy Synn delivers another installment of his irregular series of album reviews in haiku. Two more reviews come after the jump. With music.)
DEVILDRIVER – WINTER KILLS
More brawn than Beast. More
vigour than Villains. Hamstrung
By some weaker tracks.
BLAZE OF PERDITION – NECROSOPHIST
Two tracks of terror
A dissecting cover and
A riff heavy grind
DREAMING DEAD – MIDNIGHTMARES
Shreddy and savage
It’s an Arsis fan’s wet dream
(With a dash of prog)
Lord Dying- “Summon the Faithless”
Live they rage and slay
Album does not capture that
Blame Sanford Parker
Man, Ruthless was NOT the song they should’ve used as a lead off single for Devildriver. At least it’s not the Awolnation cover. Ruthless is book ended by two pretty good songs, too.
Yeah. It is one of the worst songs on the album.
Dreaming Dead sounds awesome, i’ll have to withhold judgment on the Devildriver until i hear more
Fuck Dreaming Dead is awesome. Also, I just listened through the whole album and didn’t realize the vocalist is female. Right, I’m off to try and find a copy of this.
If this is an Arsis’ fan’s wet dream, I guess I’d better get onto that too…. have to admit, I’ve seen their name around but never heard any of their music.

Seventeen On to digest
Bring much success
