"Reaper's Consecration" (Pulverised; 2012)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Old school death metal in the Entombed vein is what to expect from the Mexican duo Zombiefication on their six-track EP, "Reaper's Consecration." So much in the Entombed vein, in fact, that it would be difficult to differentiate between their classic album "Clandestine" and this endeavor if put side by side, sans some slight variations.

Nonetheless, even though Zombiefication score low for originality, their heartfelt and hellbound delivery of vintage chops and classic savagery (“We Stand Alone”) is respectful to the line of Swedish metal from where it was derived and denotes a proper worship session of not only Entombed, but Dismember and any other entity from the 1990s Swedish metal scene as well.

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.
