"Death Prevails" (Nuclear Blast; 2008)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Neophytic German metal troupe Hackneyed play with the deathcore style sharply in focus on their nine-track disc "Death Prevails."
Undoubtedly heavy yet lacking development in spots, this act -- whose median age is merely 16 -- have drawn from extreme metal's elite to compose a rough-around-the-edges sonic battering on cuts like "Gut Candy" and "Axe Splatter."
Liberal in their use of technical death metal elements and gore metal imagery, this band's debut is a remarkable effort when considering their age and experience and will definitely appeal to those into Suicide Silence and Job for a Cowboy as well as old schoolers who remember the warmongering of Bolt Thrower.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
