What’s the 4-1-1?
Third release for the Philadelphia bred group.
Death metal / heavy metal / hardcore
“Rehashed” is loaded with all the fury and bloodlust that all good death metal tracks are mode of. “Needleman” is dominated by driving guitar riffs and thunderous drums as it delves into the dark side of drug abuse. A mind-numbing lick is permanently burned into your head on “Pain & Panic.” You can actually hear vocalist Robert Meadows foaming at the mouth as he foretells his victim’s untimely demise. The dark and heavy instrumental “Salai” would make a great intro track for the band’s live show. The keyboard tones really add an extra eerie element. “Ghosting” is full of hatred and disgust for the living as the evil spirit plots his revenge. A Life Once Lost doesn’t even think about going soft with the concluding track “With Pitiless Blows.”
If I didn’t have the lyric sheet, I’d have no idea what they were talking about.
Hunter is so punishing that you’ll ears will bleed or you’ll end up killing someone (kidding…don’t kill anybody).
