Blaspherian - Infernal Warriors of Death

Blaspherian manage to distill all the awesome aspects of classic death metal and blend them together without falling into the pitfall of sounding like a worship band. Their main influence definitely seems to be Incantation at first glance but as the record unfurls more of their roots begin to show. Devastatingly gruesome riffage and top notch drumming bring the album to the front of the pack for this year. For you production elitists out there you'll be pleased to know that there's no overproduction here but at the same time the album is by no means underproduced. You can hear every instrument working independently if you give it an attentive listen but if you're just throwing it on everything still maintains that brutal wall-of-sound vibe of older records.
