Aversions Crown "Xenocide"

Slowly becoming one of death metal's most traditional standout acts, Aversions Crown are starting to leave smoke behind their peers with Suicide Silence, Whitechapel, Carnifex, Chelsea Grin, Fit For An Autopsy, Thy Art Is Murder, and Oceano (did I miss one?) either playing it super safe or doing stupid things they shouldn't be. The double bass at times is inhuman, and whether or not three eight string guitarists attacked the album individually in the studio is anyone's guess, but Xenocide takes shape quick and doesn't waste any time in making a case for the crown. Unless I missed a competitor out there who's doing things better, expect this album to be the one that finally takes the band to a respectable level of notoriety. Hopefully their addition to Nuclear Blast's roster can make the difference.
