Dave Ellefson was released from Megadeth after his indiscretions and has since been floating around trying to find an outlet. Well, I hope he continues with Dieth because what he has helped create here is nothing short of spectacular – minus a couple of minor issues. The potential is right there having got together with former Entombed A.D guitarist Guilherme Mirandas and former Decapitation drummer Michael Lyskejko Ellefson has found two like minded people.

We get the gentlest of starts on the title but before you lose interest, they literally erupt into a rabid ball of death thrash which continues on ‘Don’t Get Mad..Get Even’ where you get riot through your speakers. Miranda has a knack of tearing out some of the nastiest riffs and man he can shred too. ‘Wicked Disdain’ opens with some noir horror licks before they kick up the riot and Lysejko knocks seven different colours out of his kit then Ellefson starts ‘Free Us All’ with some jazzy lines helped by some swinging hi-hat then the mother of all that is heavy gives us another death/thrash banger. We get some groove metal on ‘Heavy Is The Crown’ where I think Ellefson takes the lead vocal – he definitely does on the dark ballad ‘Walk With Me Forever’ before we’re back with the metal on ‘Dead Inside’ and the brutal ‘The Mark Of Cain’. Things go up a step on the punk/metal of ‘In The Hall Of The Hanging Serpents’. I don’t understand the inclusion of the final track ‘Severance’. A two and half minute instrumental that goes nowhere and does nothing. When you compare it with the rest of these crushing, blistering metallers it has no place but that’s the only disappointment.

Three names who know what they’re doing, and no-one overplays or tries to step forward, it’s a band and they all bring their particular world class skills to make a phenomenal album – apart from one track – but they can be forgiven for that.
