Split albums can be hard if they are not compiled with some sort of sense for fluidity. You don’t want to have a split album that wanders too far off with bands that are so different that it becomes silly. You don’t want to have a split album with bands that are too close to each other in sound because that makes for a pretty hard to decipher split. What you do want is a split that presents bands with a similar genre but with enough personalities to stand out alone. France’s RED DEAD has a classic deathrash sound. Kinda like the one I heard back in the 80s before everything got so split up into sub-genres. Perhaps a bit more on the old school death metal side. Switzerland’s UNDEAD VISION is much more modern death metal, or should that be contemporary death metal? Not so murky and Boss heavy metal as RED DEAD but still brutal as fuck death metal. Norwegian SON OF A SHOTGUN is the band that stands out the most from these three bands. It has a southern twang to it. I am not too sure what I think about this. It stands out too much from the other two bands. But it isn’t bad. Just different. As a split this one is a cool one. You get 9 tracks from three bands. Enough to make some sort of impression on you.
