Death Toll Rising – Infection Legacy

Edmonton’s Death Toll Rising has been around since 2003. The band has released two full length albums since 2010: Defecation Suffocation, and Infection Legacy along with one EP Spontaneous Decapitation.

This album doesn’t really stand out for me. It sounds overly produced, and getting past the third song was tough. The songs generally sound the same throughout. Now, it is clear these guys can play their instruments and are incredibly talented.  ,but they have the potential to come out with something more unique.

However,I really love their sick guitar solos that span throughout the album, especially towards the end of “Infection Legacy”.  My favorite track on the record is “Malice Incarnate,” it is a little slower-paced than the rest and has some sick guitar riffs that make you want to move aroundand play some air guitar. I think this should have been the album title, easily beingthe strongest tune of the bunch.

If these guys relax a little and let things flow naturally, they will certainly find their sound— they’re not quite there yet.
