Florida's monsters return

(4 out of 5 stars)

"4 and a half stars actually. This is the best album by death metal veterans Monstrosity, and one of the best releases of 1999. Though not as technical as their previous effort, the excellent Millenium, this album definately slays. Great riffs and interesting time changes make each song memorable in its own right. New vocalist Jason Avery does a fine job growling on this disc. Sure he doesn't sound that original, but is there really such a thing as an original death growler anymore?Everything works well on 'In Dark Purity.' The guitar solos are really inspired and the drumming...oh man, just crushing while keeping that technical edge. Standout tracks include Destroying Divinity, The Angel's Venom, Dust to Dust, In Dark Purity and the sludgy intrumental The Pillars of Drear. And if that wasn't enough, they throw in a near-perfect cover of Slayer's Angel of Death. Fans of death metal, GET THIS ALBUM. You won't be disappointed."
A great death metal album of a different breed.

"This is a great CD, but unfortunately it appears to be an undiscovered gem. This CD definitely hasn't gotten the attention it deserves. It's hard to categorize this CD and compare it to works from other bands. But if I had to compare it to another band, it would be Death. It's a lot like "Sound of Perserverance" but with an emphasis on textured, precise rhythms instead of melodic leads. There are actual songs here-not just a blur of rhythms and drums. And Monstrosity isn't afraid to be---dare I say it--catchy once in a while either. This is one of the best two death metal albums of 1999 (the slower, grinding "Driven to Conquer" by Internal Bleeding being the other). All I can say is that the more I listen to it, the more I enjoy it. And as for the "Angel of Death" cover, well, no one will ever be able to touch Slayer at their peak, but it's a welcome addition nonetheless."
