Coming out of Montreal Canada is the modern Technical Death Metal unit known as
DERELICT. "Perpetuation" is the bands third full length release to date. These guys play
a crushing new school style of Death Metal music. It is very brutal and hard hitting, but
incorporates a lot of technicality and diverse song structures. They remind me of a lot of
the new breed of Death Metal bands that have emerged in the past 10 years or so. At
times the guitars have a fast past crunchy Speed Metal or Thrash Metal vibe to them.
Eric Burnet's harsh vocals range from low ended Death growls to mid ranged Death
screams into higher more spastic and aggressive screams. I am a huge fan of old school
Death Metal, but I have been loving all these newer bands playing technical Death Metal
as well. DERELICT is definitely one of the better ones doing it out there today. They
would fit perfectly in a league with the likes of THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER,
BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, THE FACELESS, JOB FOR A COWBOY &
VEIL OF MAYA. If you dig any of these bands, then you can't go wrong with
DERELICT! Check these guys out, they crush!
