Among the Dead

An Album By

This reanimated Corpse hails from Kentucky and unabashedly plays old school death metal – from way back when death was the subject matter, not a particular style. Corpse has been kicking around for 20 years, putting out demos once in a while, and this EP of new material is similar: only five songs. (A bonus disc is included with older demos, including some with their late previous singer, though.) The style is still predominantly thrash with solos aplenty and fierce skin bashing, with some death and doom influences. Think of a cross between Pennsylvania’s Sacrament and the U.K.’s Seventh Angel. The grisly graveyard scene on the album cover fits right in with today’s zombie fascination.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
