Hail Infernal Darkness

Rated 4/5 (80%) (5 Votes)

Reissued on vinyl the same year The One Who Lurks was released, 2006's Hail Infernal Darkness (I love the title) shows Drawn and Quartered (love the band name too... OK, I'm done) lashing out more crushingly heavy, brutal-ish death metal with a technical edge, but not overly so, keeping things raw. This band is very much influenced by the New York death metal sound, basically carpeting the speakers with dark, muddy, pounding and crushing death and slashing at your ears with some razor-sharp guitars. The growls are not front and centre and that really adds to the dark, menacing vibe of the album. It's textbook NY death metal, and it's damn well done.
