With some thrash and black metal tendencies thrown in to an otherwise death metal heavy sound, Confessor A.D. come up with an overall solid ripping sound that is meant to get your head banging, and they succeed. Too Late To Pray offers up five total tracks that don’t provide you much time between tracks to catch your breath. Confessor A.D. barrels through track after track one right after the other presenting you with an onslaught of nothing but gritty death. Each of the five tracks on this offering are well put together and well performed providing you with a solid listen that gets your head nodding from note one.
This filthy fast paced offering is brought to you in bloodied heaps by ever gruesome unrelenting riffs that are backed by a rumbling ever present bass as well as galloping drums that repeatedly hit you in the chest. Ushering in through the void of death that Confessor A.D. creates are the gruesome and bloodied vocals that roar up from the crypts below. With everything strung together you get a sound that is covered in filth and grime and Confessor A.D. does a great job of heaping both upon you in droves.
With the passing of each track comes yet another wave of bloody onslaught immediately. As mentioned above, these guys don’t give you too much time to rest between tracks as they push forth shoveling sinister track on you after sinister track. These death hoarders come at you with rumbling ferocity from the opening few seconds on pouring their ever grotesque and deadly brand of metal through your speakers one right after another. There is no fluff and there certainly is no filler within this release as you get nothing but unfiltered uninterrupted death in five total tracks.
This is pretty straight forward death metal with no frills and no bullshit attached to it. While Confessor A.D. aren’t reinventing the wheel here with their new slab of sickness, what they do provide are five sickening tunes in which you can bang your head until your heart is content. Each track is just as solid as the last with no real drop in substance or deadly brutality. Overall, Too Late To Pray is an all around solid effort that can be built upon. Too Late To Pray is entertaining, ripping and entirely head bang worthy.
