"WE ARE THE REAL VITAL REMAINS!" proclaim Godless Rising, and for a time it might have been true, as they featured members from that most sacred early era. What they are is a fine example of American death metal done right. Taking that spirit and groove of early VR and pushing it forward into a modern sense. Brutal without the stupidity of Suffocation nerds. This is one hell of a monster here in these 2 albums. Addictive as hell if you worship your death metal in the old ways... Xul approves.
