Guest review by
If you?ve ever wondered what Slayer's Reign in Blood would have sounded like if it was death metal you have two choices. You could listen to one of the infinitely numerous ?Angel of Death? or ?Raining Blood? covers, or you listen to this album. Yes, this is death metal, but the song structures and rhythms are very often very akin to those of thrash metal, especially Slayer. This similarity is only magnified ten fold by God Dethroned's use of melodic leads that a times sound like they could have come right off a Slayer album, both in structure and tone. This at once makes them innovators and copycats. Copycats because they take a lot from another, more famous band, and innovators as this creates a sound not often heard in death metal, and I must say, I like it A LOT.
