Death's Construction

Rated 1.6/5 (32%) (5 Votes)

I have been kind of unwillingly following this band since 2005, when they sent me their Monarch of the Kingdom of Death demo, which sucked worse than maybe any other Death Metal demo I have ever heard. They improved slightly for their debut album Worship or Die in 2008, which was simply awful, as opposed to laughable. I don't know why they keep sending me promos when I hate them all so much, but here we have their latest, Death's Construction, which sees them emerging from joke territory and turning into a real band.

This is utterly derivative and pedestrian US Death Metal in the mode of Cannibal Corpse or old Deicide, but for this band 'pedestrian' is a massive improvement over their previous work. I honestly never thought they would even reach the level of 'not embarrassing', let alone 'competent', but they have. I suppose saying an album is notable for not being ear-rapingly horrible is pretty backhanded, but I never thought Created to Kill would ever release anything remotely this good. Passable, and that's a damned miracle.
