DEAD CONGREGATION - Graves of the Archangels
This LP is eerie and that's what I like about it. For a debut, it kicks royal ass! The music is tight, the vocals are guttural and the production quality is top notch. I like how they change it up a lot during this release. It's really dark and depressing. That is till the actual songs get going and the album progresses very nicely. The guitar riffs are amazing! Really original and innovative. Especially being a band that's just getting started (basically) in the death metal world. I would say this one is one of the top releases in 2008. I think that I'm right in saying so. But for now, we can view it as a somewhat classic album.
