Rape Pillage and Burn – Songs of Death… Songs of Hell

rape pillageFeaturing 2/3 of Divine Eve and Richard Cabeza (Dismember) on bass and some vocals, “Songs of Death… Songs of Hell” is Rape Pillage and Burn’s debut release that certainly isn’t reinventing the wheel when it comes to traditional death metal, but we really don’t want them to do we? Not I! This material is blastless death metal in the vein of the early 90’s with a burly and warm guitar tone ala Divine Eve and a burnt out, throaty death metal vocal style stirring the sonic abyss. The mid-paced to slow plod of these songs allows the open nature of the riffs to dig in with Celtic Frostian might and catchiness. A very organic and dirty sounding EP from a project that I look forward to hearing more development from in the form of a full-length should this power trio last. –Marty
