"Brutality Is Law" (Unique Leader; 2003)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Severed Savior is a Bay Area based death metal band that features ex-members of Deeds of Flesh. These guys play in the vein of Cannibal Corpse and Dying Fetus, so you know right from the get go to brace yourself for the carnage. 

"Brutality Is Law" contains ten meaty tracks of guitars that sound like swarms of bees near a hive and a rhythm section that puts most construction sites to shame when it comes to noise levels. This quartet pounds out some heavy stuff, folks, and for those of you that like death metal for the speed, you're in luck; everything's fast as hell and hearty enough to bang your head to. 

So, if you like your death metal heavy and fast with a slew of growls and guttural utterances that sound like Cookie Monster on crack, allow Severed Savior to attack your senses for a while.

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.
