Vltimas: Something Wicked Marches In Review

Featuring an cast from Mayhem, Cryptopsy, and Morbid Angel, Vltimas sound exactly like the form of extreme metal that you'd imagine. Yes, the debut from this Portugal super group may lack originality, but Something Wicked makes up for the missing creativity with quality. The intensity level is consistent, making this a workout worthy listen, and every member plays like the professional they are. I think David Vincent's vocal work shined the most though the lyrics are a bit amateurish.

For every good thing about this debut, there's something negative I could counter it with. Still, Vltimas put out a pretty good album despite the flaws and I suggest all death metal fans to go give this one a spin.

Rating: ***1/2
