Death Comes With Silence

Summer Jams Clearance Sale, Part 2

Almost a decade vested in ATX, Colombian fivepiece Headcrusher finally follows up 2012 debut Let the Blood Run and subsequent EP Black Burning Skies by erecting a solid wall of death. Where its meat-hook predecessors basically spread a single song over a dozen combined tracks, that raw sustenance hardens into uniformity on Death Comes With Silence. Denser and environmentally livid, it's withering ("Trails of Devastation") and merciless ("Eter­nal Butchery"), and best contrasted by stained class guitar pieces at the bookends and old-school solos on "Black Hearted Demons" and elegiac last word "Gritos del Sur."
