The production is very raw, sounding like an 80’s demo tape, but it’s executed well since you can hear everything that’s going on, still. The guitar tone is heavy as fuck and suits the ripping death metal riffage exceedingly well the bass isn’t very audible, but you can tell it’s there, the drum work is great and the vocals remind me of a young Kam Lee. What more could you ask for from a young band paying tribute to the old-school lords of death while also bringing forth their own brand of filthy metal? This really is meat and potatoes death metal meant only for true fans of the old-school.
The only criticisms I really have about “Pits of Eternal Torment” are that I wish it was a bit longer, since 11 minutes doesn’t feel like enough time to showcase the bands potential and that the production could be better, but I’m sure that will be worked out on their future releases since this IS a bloody demo tape, after all! And a fucking good one at that.
