Hacked to Perfection, from Floridian death metal duo NEVER TO ARISE, is now streaming in its entirety at StereoKiller.com. To experience this visceral and bloodied slab of pure death metal fury before its May 15th releasedate on badGod Music, visit nevertoarise.stereokiller.com.
The duo of Gordon Denhart and Michael Kilborn, collectively known as NEVER TO ARISE, couldn’t care less about being trendy. Their brand of “Blood and Guts” Death Metal combines musicality with brutality, featuring catchy riffing, hard hitting rhythms, violent lyrics and quality lead guitar work. Denhart and Killborn joined forces to discharge such an aurally crippling and melodic barrage of sound that a first listen without the proper preparation the audience may be left bereft of all sense and helpless. A brutal musical concoction that exemplifies not only the pureness of what Death Metal should be but what lies ahead for the future of the genre.
“…A brutal, vicious, and even technically progressive melodic death metal act capable of creating a heavy atmosphere of quality traditional thunder!” – Thrashhead.com
“This album is a pure riff-fest of elaborately garnished riffs accompanied with delicate song writing and technical proficiency, which can all easily rage like violent storms over a mosh pit.” – Lacerated Metal ‘Zine
