XENOSIS “Devour And Birth”

“Devour And Birth”

Battle Helm Rating

Progressive death metal makes me think of Nocturnus but in this case that is as far away from truth as you can get. This Connecticut band are much more brutal in their approach than anything Nocturnus ever did. When I read what has influenced the band I can’t help thinking that that must be a list that they have put together out of what they like and not what they sound like because I don’t hear much early Metallica or Testament in their sound. I can understand the Dillinger Escape Plan and Meshuggah influences because this twists and turns like a math lesson. But it is not too technical. XENOSIS manages to keep the worst exploits contained and in that creating an album that rocks (in a death metal way). Anders Ekdahl
