"Ghetto Angel" (This Dark Reign; 2008)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Providing a massive sound guaranteed to bulldoze anything in its path, the North Carolina wrecking crew known as Sourvein return with another ornery collection of sludge with "Ghetto Angel." 

This four-track excursion clocks in at a little over 17 minutes and presents a mid-tempo mauling that will require you to reinforce the free-standing objects before pumping cuts like the guttural doom of "Septic Werewolves III" through your stereo. Thick and viscous riffs and vicious vocals assist in making this disc the soundtrack to a junkie's diary, right down to the last notes of despair found on "D.I.L.L.G.A.F."

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.
