DEAD CONGREGATION “Purifying Consecrated Ground” MCD

DEAD CONGREGATION (GR) “Purifying Consecrated Ground” MCD (Nuclear Winter Records) 6e

I am tempted to go for Tour De Garde‘s non-description for this one

If you need description, then you don’t need it

Anyway, in case you’ve been in a coma since 2005 let me do a briefing for you. Here’s 5 songs (clocking a little bit over 20 minutes) that have changed the face of contemporary death metal and have greatly contributed to the ancient death metal revival that has stormed the underground since…

Dead Congregation execute death metal the old way. Being connoisseurs of the genre, there’s too many influences in play to start namedropping (and to be honest I am possibly not even familiar with some of their most obscure ones!), but Incantation and Immolation are certainly two solid points of reference.

The real added value of D.C. though, is that they have a way of writing and playing that is modern and elaborate. They are intense and have a superior sense of rhythm and dynamics. These gents are not stuck into the past. They are one of the most crucial bands of today’s metal. All hails!

Collector data:

  • Been out of print for a long time, this is the 3rd CD press.
  • New, slightly different layout which is a combination between the original version and Enucleation records’ digipack.
