Think of successful two piece acts in any field and the following will spring to mind. Cannon and Ball, Morcambe and Wise, Sonny and Cher even Bert and Ernie but one name you will not think of is Never To Arise.
Never To Arise are a two piece death metal act from Pinellas County Florida and they are set to unleash their brand of blood and guts death metal world wide. Hacked To Perfection is filled with ten tracks that are more doom and gloom than a sweet sixteen in Josef Fritzels basement.
With complete disregard for any offence that may be taken Never to Arise come at you full force with violent lyrics that are backed up by an aggressive musical arrangement. Whilst being out there with a fuck you attitude the two piece consisting of Gordon Denhart (vocals, guitar and drum programming) and Mike Killborn (guitar and bass) don’t hold back on their unique musicianship.
With Never To Arise it almost feels as if less is more. Too many death metal bands have five or six members with too much going on where as Never To Arise have the bare minimum yet speak volumes through their music.
Stand out tracks include “Snuff Film Superstar” and “The Femicidal Impulse” feature an onslaught of pure hatred. If you are a fan of any form of extreme metal I thoroughly recommend giving Never To Arise a listen.
Hacked To Perfection will be available from May 15th through Bad God Music. 8/10
