Construcdead - God After Me
No violins. No female voices. No keyboards. No clean vocals. Nothing new, nothing that has never been seen before. No fills, just thrills. Pure Metal, period.

CONSTRUCDEAD is basically your typical Swedish Death Metal-band with lots of great catchy riffs, fast melodies and gritty death growls. Like I said, nothing new, but these guys don't pretend like they're out to reinvent the wheel. They just do what they do and they're actually quite good at it. At first I was sceptical, but now I just can't let go of the album. You see, you don't need smoke and mirrors when you possess the raw talent to produce music and so it wouldn't do much good if they added electronic sound effects or anything, CONSTRUCDEAD is meant to be stripped of all "soft" elements.

"God After Me" features excellent vocals, an impressive production [are you sure this is a demo?] and memorable songs. It's hard for me to pick a favourite on the CD simply, because they're all pretty good. I kinda like "My Dying Hate"'s leads though, so.

I can't find anything negative about this album except for the fact that it's too short [4 songs and less than 15 minutes.] and that it's nothing that hasn't been heard before. What it lacks in originality, it more than makes up in enjoymentability [new word]. I wish I didn't have to do this, but you could say that CONSTRUCDEAD sounds a bit like SOILWORK. They're no rip-off though, they just have influences.

Killer, really. Now please, give us a full-length!
