Adversarial - All Idols Fall Before the Hammer (2010)

Full-length, Dark Descent Records
August 15th, 2010

Genre: Death Metal/Technical Death Metal
Region: Canada

Canada definitely knows death metal and the first full length from these three guys is damn impressive, carrying that tradition on effortlessly. A primarily orthodox death metal sound/structure and hints of technicality (at points similar to Immolation, Cryptopsy or Ulcerate). It's a fucking mammoth, well written chunk of dark and twisted death clearly created by guys who can play the fuck out of their instruments. Every riff is blazing fast and incredibly addictive, so much so you'll surely run through this three times in a row without difficulty (I know I did). 

There have been complaints about the snare drum being too high in the mix and these are justified, so if you'd rather have the remastered version (thanks to this fine gentleman). Outside of that minor gripe these brutal Canadians are doing it right, along side bands like Mitochondrion, Ignivomous, Vasaeleth, Funebrarum, Denial, etc.
