Released in 2007, Defiled Covenant is an album from longtime (formed in the early 90s) death metal band, “Disinterment.” Defiled Covenant certainly lives up to its name by offering up a satisfyingly demonic sound. The crisp and workmanlike guitarwork has the mark of a refined, veteran metal band. Though this came out in 2007, it has a very classic metal feel to it. If I just randomly heard it, I would have guessed it was from the late 80s / early 90s. It just sounds very authentic and not like a bunch of kids LARPing as a death metal band. Even the vocal effects seem dated in a good way. With song titles like Desecrated Remnants and Desolate Damnation the album almost has a feel of a horror movie opera. The songs are darkly melodic and strangely calming in a spawning hellfire kind of way. The first track, Disintro is like a suspenseful opening of a portal to hell. the album takes us musically on a fast paced, sightseeing tour of the dominion of the damned. It is just a very solid release, as one comes to expect with any decent metal band, features cover art of the highest caliber. Disinterment's other albums: DEMONIACAL DISPEL and DOMINATION DEFIED.
