Rating:
9.0
Reviewing the posthumous opus ultimus of a recently-deceased artist imposes the unique burden of simultaneously preventing the unfortunate circumstances from coloring any objective sentiments about the work itself and remaining sensitive to the situation. While of course we believe in subjective reviews here, and some albums are best understood in the context of their creator's demise (Woods Of Ypres's Woods V), more often than not death intensifies hero worship. Rigor Mortis require no special treatment; not only does Slaves To The Grave deliver well enough on its own, it is a fitting swan song and testament to the brilliance of both Rigor Mortis and the late Mike Scaccia.
