THE MURDERED

"...And the Maggots Shall Inherit the Earth" (Tribunal; 2006)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Providing a hybrid of seething metalcore that borrows from Darkest Hour as much as it does As I Lay Dying at their heaviest, Atlanta mob Murdered also implement elements of chugging hardcore, thrashy guitars, and a high pitched wail that could cite Swedish metal as a foundation point on songs like "The Shadow Rises" and "The Darkness Unveiled."

Rolling out the heavy artillery in the form of thunderous drums and turret-gun guitars, this band unequivocally displays that the dirty south isn't all about krunk and bling after all.

Rating Guide:

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.
