|Planetary Duality CD (2008) Top Seller
Derek Rydquist music CDs Duality is the operative word on this second release by technical death metal band the Faceless. The band sets up a spine-tingling tension between instrumental prowess ("The Ancient Covenant") and sheer brutality ("Coldly Calculated Design"), and when the band fires all guns the result is a complex and challenging listen that doesn't stint on chaotic mayhem. Credit for the latter goes to vocalist Demon Carcass, whose voice suggests nothing less than full Satanic possession.
