Years of Tyrants – Leading The Blind (album review)

Having lain dormant for three years Leading The Blind by Years of Tyrants will be released in Europe on May 6th followed by its American release the following day. Nine tracks of in your face, fast paced death metal how it should be played, none of this ridiculous eight minute long epics.

Years of Tyrants play a brand of deathcore that draws the line somewhere between The Rotted and Suicide Silence with a bit of Cryptopsy riffage thrown in for good measure. These songs are not by any means classics (as goes for all death metal really) but they are filled to the brim with aggression and rage. The type of music you can blast after a shit day at work and tear your living room apart to.

Intricate guitar harmonies and riffs strewn across an assault of double bass drum blast beats that don’t let up from the opening verse of the album through to the closing chorus. This is the type of music your parents didn’t want you listening to as a kid and for good reason. It’s loud as fuck and dirty as sin and I for one have fallen in love with it.

If you want death metal without the posing and over the top attitude then Years of Tyrants are more refreshing than a cold beer and a jazz cigarette on a sunny day. 7.6/10
