Anyone familiar with Decrepit Birth albums knows that the drum performance of these top tier brutal death metallers is of the highest quality and complexity. Technical precision like that requires, quite frankly, better skills than most drummers in modern music. That being said, a project from LIVE drummer Gabe Seeber is certainly worthy of the attention of the technical underground, if only by association with such virtuosity in percussion alone.
The second full length from The Kennedy Veil, Trinity of Falsehood , was released on January 21 by Unique Leader Records. On their Facebook page the Sacramento four-piecedescribes their style as “No throwbacks, no breakdowns, no wanking, no trends. Modern American Brutal Death Metal!” An apt description indeed.
Trinity of Falsehood, along with the 2011 release The Sentence of their Conqueror, can be streamed and purchased (for 10$ and 6$ digital purchase, respectively) at The Kennedy Veil’s Bandcamp page.

Its sludge/grind for waking up facedown in the gutter. Continue reading Technical Tuesday – Which did not start very technical at all→

The weather outside very much influences my choice in music – once old man winter leaves for the year, Immortal’s At the Heart of Winter doesn’t see rotation again until the first snow.
If the season can influence my music choice, why not the day? Hence, Technical Tuesday, a new weekly column where I will be giving very short summaries on each album I listened to, and picking a weekly winner. Let’s begin…. Continue reading Now Playing: Lots of music on Tuesday!→
