The first thing that came to mind when I threw
this in my CD player was Internal Bleeding. Certainly you can imagine a
band that is named Sudden
Death to either be a cheesy power metal band or a brutal death metal
band. The second alternative is the answer. Sudden Death is from Italy and
this album (entitled, Injection of Hate) is their second full-length release,
which contains 9 songs / 28 minutes play time. The style of death metal
that they have chosen is rather simple, but not really over-repetitive.
Lots of riffs and fast kick drums. There aren't really a lot of solos, but
the ones that are present are very brief. Sorta like those old-Grave solos.
I would say the best song here is track 8 (Chronicles of Ades), which has
some fancy rhythms and twin-guitar melodies. Almost sounding like ol' Chuck
(Death / Control Denied- RIP) and some other parts similar to some faster
Deicide riffs. The album does get boring from time to time for me, but that
is more due to the very trebly production. Nothing flashy or ultra-blah,
just good old-school death metal. If you dig bands from the late-80's /
early-90's death metal era, you just might dig these guys too.
