formidable darkness (2017/TRIPLE-B)

HARDCORE. When a band forms, as RED DEATH did in late 2013, primarily out of reverence for CORROSION OF CONFORMITY - and especially when half the members hail from North Carolina - their 2nd album is bound to have a lot riding on it. Everything that made 2015's "permanent exile" and 2016's "deterrence" 7" classics has been amplified on the new album: the solos soar higher, the riffs penetrate deeper, the rhythm section pounds harder and with more precision, and the vocals are more unhinged. From their 1st practice in D.C. some years ago, RED DEATH has been heirs to the proudest of traditions in the heavy-music underground, and with "formidable darkness", they've fulfilled their immense promise - just in time for the world's ignominious end.
