Memoriam - The Hellfire Demos Picture-7" EP


Although there's no shortage of decent death metal bands in the vein of the mighty Bolt Thrower, I'm relieved that the overlords themselves are continuing the legacy in the form of Memoriam. Comprising of members from Bolt Thrower and Benediction, there's no real surprises to be found here. Every one of the three tracks (Surrounded by Death is the third) I've heard from the band are of very high quality death metal, and they're pretty much a continuation of Bolt Thrower's trademark sound. This is the sound, that for me is the 'heavy' in heavy metal i.e. crunchy mid-tempo riffs supported by heavy handed drumming.
