Pallor Mortis- The Art of Terror

Pallor Mortis started off as a project between vocalist Vince O'Leary and guitarist Peter Lountzis. Due to Montreal's saturated technical/melodic/hardcore scenes, and both being avid fans of old school death metal, they decided to bring back death metal in the ilk of Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse to Montreal. They had also decided to create a theme that went beyond the typical gore lyrics of death metal by using a lyrically rich, tyrant based/historical approach. Ultimately the full lineup was completed with the addition of Jessica Simard (then on bass, later rejoining on guitar), Jessy Normand on drums and Jeff Jenkins on bass. After three years, an EP, multiple lineup changes, and great shows, they are ready to bring you their first full-length “The Art of Terror”.

Which is such a suiting name. This is the kind of metal which makes people run in fright of that terrible 'devil' music. Yeah, I have lots of non metal friends. The vocals bring that deep guttural sound that classic death metal is known for and the instrumental side churns along at a bone crushing pace. I'm not one to go into all the technical aspects of a band, I would rather just give my seal of approval as I transfer this album onto my phone and listen the shit out of it.
