Since forming in 1988, Yonkers, NY death metal veterans Immolation have churned out nine albums of classic, brutal death metal. Their latest offering, Kingdom of Conspiracy, follows that tradition, delivering ten tracks that maintain the band's iconic sound. The album is filled with guitarist/chief songwriter Bob Vigna's crushing riffs and intricate leads, showcasing his penchant for unconventional song structures and guitar flourishes, which adds a different twist to the band, displaying various musical influences. Heavy yet melodic guitar work interlocks with powerful drum blasts, while vocalist/bassist Ross Dolan growls menacing gutturals, ejecting dismal, Orwellian-themed lyrics. Although Kingdom of Conspiracy is familiar, that isn't to say Immolation are repeating themselves. While they have been consistent with their sound over the past 25 years, preserving their identity and sticking to their roots, they've also been able to push their boundaries with fresh, innovative twists, in order to create albums that build upon their style while remaining distinctly Immolation. Kingdom of Conspiracy is the next stepping-stone in the band's ever-evolving sound that still manages to exude early '90s NYC-style death metal. Constantly honing their sound and songwriting skills with each consecutive release, Immolation just keep getting better, darker and more aggressive with age. (Nuclear Blast)
