• Frozen Soul "Encased In Ice" CD (Japan Press)
Japan Press. Obi Strip included.
Frozen Soul hail from Texas in the United States and this demo is the first of hopefully more releases to come. From the band’s title, I was expecting some sort of frigid black metal but I was pleasantly surprised by the down and dirty death metal I got instead. Though this demo is only 4 songs long, clocking in at about 15 minutes, I found it an enjoyable listen from start to finish. This band also has a distinctly old school sound, their riffage a clear homage to bands like Cannibal Corpse, Mortician, and Incantation. Though the album is far from unique, it most definitely tickles my fancy and is a relatively easy listen comparatively to something like Pissgrave, which I reviewed recently.
