Requiem - Global Resistance Rising CD
Requiem is a Swiss death metal band that is still fairly unknown. Imagine a combination of Vader, newer Behemoth, and a tiny pinch each of Sodom and Napalm Death and you'll have a fairly accurate representation of what these guys are up to. With their new LP, Requiem has very nearly perfected their form of high-speed, streaming death metal. With the first couple listens of this album, I was genuinely shocked at how clean and professional it was. This album, production-wise as well as musically, is definately at the top tier of the metal scene these days.
