I was recently going through some of My CD's and I came across this album: CANCER "DEATH SHALL RISE".It had been a very long time since I last heard this album so I decided to put the disc in and Crank up the volume and here is what I found:A fantastic Death Metal album that is really solid from start to finish. Produced by Scott Burns (CANNIBAL CORPSE and DEICIDE) this 2nd release from CANCER has an Excellent sound a very high production on the entire recording. The sound quality is absolutely crystal clear and not the least bit muddled. You can really hear each instument very well especially the drums and the double Bass pedals, and outside of the shredding guitars and vocals the Bass player can be heard very well too! With only 8 tracks this album seems to fly at a furious speed (but that is when the repeat button becomes extremely handy!!) CANCER as a Band overall have a tremendous amount of talent and if I could give an example of what they sound like it would most likely be a cross between the intricate writing, brutal vocals, and excellent solo's of: DEATH and the blinding precision and speed plus excellent "CRUNCH" rhythms of: the almighty SLAYER! Some of the major highlights from "DEATH SHALL RISE" are: track #1)"Hung, Drawn,and Quartered"(ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL LYRICS!), track #2)"Tasteless Incest"(Fantastic SLAYER style rhythms and My personal favorite track on the album!), track #4)"Death Shall Rise"(this track has a couple of really terrific guitar solos and some Jaw-Dropping double Bass work on the drums!! Great timing changes too!), track #7)"Corpse Fire", and track #8)"Internal Decay"(GREAT FINISHING TOUCH!).If You enjoy Your bands DARK,BRUTAL,AND REALLY HEAVY! then CANCER's "DEATH SHALL RISE" is an excellent album to add to Your collection!I also HIGHLY recommend this album if You enjoy listening to bands like: SLAYER,DEATH,CANNIBAL CORPSE,DEICIDE,and OBITUARY. I am really glad I took the time out to put this disc in and give it a listen! It's been a long time and I forgot what a great band CANCER was. I hope My review was helpful to You.
