Hailing from Texas is Sigil and with their new record Kingdom of The Grave they provide you some filthy face ripping death metal. This release contains eight total songs that are as heavy as you can imagine and just as head stomping as you can imagine. From track to track you can expect nothing less than destructive, headbanging and intense tunes for the next thirty plus minutes. When you press play the sound that you get sounds as though it is coming from a musty tomb and you immediately know that you are in for a deadly and poisonous death metal treat.
Each of the eight tracks on this record are incredibly strong and well put together. There isn’t a weak song on this record and there certainly isn’t one that you would want to skip either. Every song is a bulldozer of death that gets you thrashing about like a mad man until the closing track has ended. Kingdom of The Grave has a great old-school sound to it that certainly does draw from our death metal greats, but it also has its own twists to make the sound its own. The fetid sound that you get when listening is sure to please both old-school death metal fiends and new-school death metal fiends alike.
Kingdom of The Grave is riddled with great musicianship and great vocals that are both monstrous and understandable. All throughout you end up being peppered with slashing riffs, bone shaking bass lines, solid drumming and blood thirsty vocals to ultimately create a deadly and flesh consuming record. Even when you are done listening to this record you can still hear it playing in your head as it has a knack for just getting stuck to you. Kingdom of The Grave is a striking and piercing record and it does a great job of sucking you in and keeping you along for the twisted listen.
With their mixture of death metal and D-beat, Sigil provides you with a heavy and entertaining listen that is reminiscent of the old and yet finds a place in the present. If you are a fan of old-school death metal or if you are a fan of new death metal, then Kingdom of The Grave is an album that should please your tortured ear drums. This release heaps on the heavy and does its best to stomp your head in the dirt, and really what else could you ask for in a death metal record?
In conclusion, Kingdom of The Grave is a great death metal record that provides you with damning and neck twisting tunes. If you are a fan of death metal, you should keep your eyes peeled for this release.
