Also-rans of the US death metal scene, Cianide have been clucking for over 20 years now. Gods of Death is their sixth full-length release, and the only one I've heard since their debut The Dying Truth which was a cool, if unspectacular slab of doom/death. Nothing much has changed since then, as Cianide are still pedaling that same brand of death metal, with a mammoth guitar tone, low growls and a serviceable rhythm section.
While I think Gods of Death is cool enough, I don't find anything here which would make me listen to this album as opposed to the certified classics and gems of the early days. In fact I've found a lot of newer bands who do this sound a lot more justice than Cianide do or ever did. However I don't want to seem too harsh here; this album really isn't bad at all. There are a lot of headbangable moments and cool riffs to keep me interested, and I'm sure someone who listens to death metal 24/7 would be able to find a place for Gods of Death in their collection.
Like I said before though, there are a lot of records I'd reach for before this one, and it certainly doesn't have a place in my collection. At best this is a cool death metal release, but it doesn't go much further than that.
