NEVER TO ARISE “Hacked To Perfection”

“Hacked To Perfection”
(BadGod Records)
Never To Arise almost pulverized me with their opening track. Good thing I took cover otherwise I would have been a blood piece of meat by now. This comes up as heavy and menacing in a way that only great death metal does. Perhaps not the most brutal or heavy of death metal acts but Never To Arise still manages to conjure up enough “evil eye” kind of feelings to their metal to make it interesting. What struck me was that this could be a cross between Cannibal Corpse and Death had they met in a dark back alley one night. The brutality of CC and the tender, technical solos of Death melted together into one big gory mess. The more I listen to this the more I kinda get that feeling validated. This is some pretty cool death metal. Anders Ekdahl
