KILL - Great Death CD
(review from 'No Clean Singing') 'I discovered this next release thanks to an e-mail Bandcamp alert. It’s a new album named Great Death by the Swedish band Kill. This is the band’s fifth album, though I seem to have missed out on all their previous releases up to this one. It’s nice to finally make this discovery — and I say that because Great Death is awesome, and has quickly become one of my favorite black/death releases of the year.
And yes, this is another instance in which I’m spreading the word about an excellent album without attempting to make a full review of it — because I’m afraid I might never get around to slobbering at great length about the album’s strengths.
Kill deliver overpowering, decimating swaths of destructive, paranormal black/death — spine-shattering percussion melded with gales of abrasive riffing and phantasmagoric lead guitar emanations and capped by gruesome, cavernous roars and horrific wails and shrieks. The music is violent, chaotic, hallucinatory, disorienting, terrifying — and absolutely exhilarating.
And I want to make special note about the impact of the bass drum in these songs — it sounds like it’s about this size, and it’s used to punctuate the hurricane-force storming of the songs in ways you can feel like heavyweight punches to the gut.
You’ll figure out very quickly from the first track, “Doom Oath”, whether this is your thing. Give it a shot (review from 'No Clean Singing')
-As everyone knows these days, shipping prices have increased and increased-especially for LP's. The best way to try and combat this when ordering is to place as big an order as possible, as for example, to ship one LP to the USA is £8.50 but only £11.50 for 2, £14.50 for 3 (so already reduced to under £5 each) and so on the more copies ordered.
- All items are shipped in brand new packaging. LP's are all shipped with vinyl removed from the sleeve first and in a professional LP shipping box.
- Big Cartel sometimes gets it wrong in calculating exact packaging and shipping fees due to its pricing structure. If it turns out that you have paid vastly more than it has cost to package and ship (our shipping price covers both actual shipping plus packaging costs), we will refund any excess after processing/shipping.
- Apologies, but due to postal unreliability in certain areas, we have been forced to charge both shipping and tracking to certain countries hence higher shipping rates to those countries. Countries affected by this that we ship to are: Greece, Italy and Poland.
- We do not currently ship to certain areas of the world. If your country is not shown in the drop-down shipping menu when calculating totals, we do not currently ship there.
