Death Requisite has been trolling around in the swamp since 1999, looking for gators to eat, I suspect. These Florida death metalers’ Second Death EP is a thriller that ends all too quickly. Clocking in around only 20 minutes, it’s just long enough to make listeners want more. Of the five tracks, the EP is bookended by instrumentals that add to the dark, classical vibe woven through the music. Musically, Death Requisite is very tight and would invite comparisons to Dethklok, except for the symphony motif flowing throughout the EP. Highly recommended.
Frenzied. Chaotic. Punk. The Undertaking!, San Diego's newest wild bunch, is about to release their debut album, and, if their live show is a premonition of any kind, the world will be opening up to one heck of a party with them. Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.Full Feature More from The Undertaking
