This is Rose Funeral
's first album and probably their most amateur album. Do not take that the wrong way, it is still a really good album. It just isn't up to Gates of Punishment
standards. Now this album does have some variety in it, which I like a lot. I really really like the intro and the interlude song, they just give the album a lot of feeling and keep you interested. Now if you are one of those people who hate breakdowns then stay away from this album and stop reading now.
There is one specific song that has my favorite breakdown, The Well. It has a cool kind of generic chug sound but the vocalist part is great. He says, "Raise the dead, Feast on the living"! He says it over and over but I am glad because it is just awesome lyrics and it flows perfectly with the breakdown. Another good breakdown is the title track(intro). It pretty much does the same thing except it says crucify kill rot. But because it is close to the same thing is probably why it is really awesome.
Intereo Diu is the interlude track and it sounds really emotional. It has a soothing guitar part with a deep voice whispering and rain pouring in the background. The rain is kind of silent but pay attention and you will feel like your watching a movie.
The drumming in this album is really good. The snare drum sounds kind of weird but thats easy to get over. It just sounds really clicky I guess. He hits the snare VERY fast after some breakdowns. He just seems like he can very from extremely fast blasts into slow heavy breakdowns with ease and thats pretty much all they needed in Crucify. Kill
There is not much else to say about this album. I guess what you would say is that it is an example of "Pure Deathcore
." Which Crinn always says in his reviews and I feel like this is a great example. Well if you listen to a few songs but don't feel like listening to the whole album I would reccomend Eternal
Regret, The Well, and State Of Decay
. Well that is about it, I give this album a 16/20.
