THE brutal death metal album - 100%

deatmetaljunkie, September 27th, 2007

Psalms of the Moribund is one of the best brutal death metal albums ever and ranks up there with Decrepit Birth's "...And Time Begins" and Disgorge's (US) "Consume the Forsaken". If you like you death metal extra extra heavy, brutal, guttural, rage inducing, twisted etc., then look no further than this devastating beast of an album. This album is not for the faint of heart, and only for those who like their death metal as insane and violent as possible. The production is super heavy and really adds power to the expertly crafted songs. Each song is strong enough to stand on it’s own. I’ve yet to skip a track and I have owned it for months. The guitars are extremely technical, the guttural vocals are brutal, and Psalms has some of the heaviest death metal breakdowns ever. How could someone not want to beat everything in the immediate vicinity when a breakdown like the one at the end of the title track occurs? This album is chock full of brutally heavy death metal gems. In each song one can find plenty of blasting and double bass, brutal breakdowns, sick guttural vocals, and insane guitars that do everything from power chord chugging to crazy technical lines. Every musician here is a true master of their instrument as Psalms is musically flawless; everything is clearly heard and Defeated Sanity play with the precision of a surgeon, but with the rage and fury of a serial killer with a machete.

In a time when real death metal is overlooked for more melodic and trendy deathcore bands, one German band defiantly flips the bird at all trends and their followers, and Psalms is a true testament to the apocalyptic fury that is death metal.
