This is the studio return after a 5 year long period for a band that needs no lengthy introductions. Born of the Floridian cauldrons which in the end of the 80s spawn the leaders of American death metal. Obiruary, Deicide, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Malevolent Creation (Death excluded, a unique case by all means)! That says it all. Dead Man’s Path continues the tradition of excellent Malevolent Creation albums since the band has never disappointed the fans by releasing a mediocre record. They release albums when they have something to say and not just for staying relevant. All the elements one would look for in a death metal album are present. Ground leveling riffs with the Phil Fasciana brand, Brett Hoffmann’s distinctive voice, 12 songs with the foot stuck on the pedal of the bulldozer. The digipack edition includes the rerecording of two Stillborn songs, definitely their most overlooked album. Things are quite simple. You listen to death metal? Then this album is a must.
