Yes, the vocals would fit well with any Bolt Thrower album since I hear very little difference between them: One particular feature, however, that makes Transcend the Rubicon something pretty special, something more than just another solid Death Metal record, is that it somehow manages to be both monotonous and varied at the same time. When dealing with the nimble and riff happy character of up tempo songs such as “Unfound Mortality”, “Paradox Alley” and “Violation Domain”, it’s very easy to hear the commonalities with early Death, though vocalist Dave Ingram has a deeper growl that’s a little closer to Glen Benton and the solos are not quite as fancy. All in all, “Transcend the Rubicon” is a very worthy purchase for all old-school death metal aficionados. Hawks September 12th Comments. The instrumentation is furious on here but there isn’t really as much variety with the song-writing on here as with “The grand leveller”. You see, folks, the problem with both of the band’s previous albums were that while the music was decent in some cases, brilliant!

The vocals are another highlight: ShadowRemains February 3rd Comments.
But more importantly, it’s an album marked by a delicate balance of consistency and contrast that is not as widely heard benedictioj lately. By contrast, the original land of heavy metal otherwise known as the U. Dave Thhe grunts on this album, and I believe his voice on here was his crowning achievement. The “fucking” is not part of the actual title, but it might as well be, because that is what I scream in the faces of random bystanders while I play air-guitar to this album in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
Actually, the album comes off as very playful and innocent, rather than stern and evil, which is really hard to imagine. On 20 Music Lists. Such detail, color, vigor, and skill — it could only be done by Dan Seagrave. Login Create a Profile.
BENEDICTION – Transcend the Rubicon DLP BLACK
Hawks February 3rd Comments. Benediction’s slightly punk-influenced mostly in the drumming style of death metal remains fully intact, but with some notable changes, some of which forewarn the listener about the direction the band would go with their next album the majority of “Painted Skulls” and the breakdown in “Violation Domain” have hardcore written all over themand others hint at a surprising degree of technicality and musicianship that brings to mind what Death was up to at the time, on the “Individual Thought Patterns” album.
As for the cover art, this is one of my favorites in the genre.
There is a lot to be said about the seminal offerings of bands like Bolt Thrower, Deicide and Suffocation and how their sounds shaped the ongoing ebb and flow of death metal in the 90s, but bands like Benediction are definitely entitled to some much needed attention for adding to and reaffirming the same ideas that continue to define the style.
The ingenious and vivid cover art alone is worthy of consideration, as Dan Seagrave essentially tapped into the same brilliant approach that gave Dismember’s “Like An Ever Flowing Stream” it’s instant appeal and even surpasses it nenediction terms of how detailed the imagery is.
BENEDICTION | Transcend the rubicon BLACK VINYL – Nuclear Blast
Here he delivers a very powerful vocal performance that fits Benediction’s musical style like a hand fits a banana, comparable to the likes of Karl Willets or Barney Greenway both of whom he has replaced at tbe point rubkcon his careerbut with his own spin on things very important to add that! Bass support never goes beyond backing the guitars, which themselves are very thick and rich. The production quality is notably free from the muddy character that typified Obituary’s early efforts and comes off as closer to the crisp, punchy sound of earlier Slayer-inspired death metal, though there is a similar flirtation with slower, doom-like tempos at times that do concur with some of Obituary’s material on “Slowly We Rot”.
DikkoZinner February 27th Comments. Voivod Staff Reviewer February 4th Comments. I say this because the song titles can be misleading: The Algorithm Compiler Optimization Benedicttion.
Honestly, this cover art remains one of the best in death metal I even have a poster of it on my wall and there is so much to look at in it: At times this song takes on a slight “The Thing That Should Not Be” feel to it, but it takes care not to drag out for too long, though it definitely takes it’s time hhe get going.
Anyway, what we get here is a pretty decent mixture of old and new. While Benediction were never a solo-based band You have to be logged in to post a comment. Flotsam and Jetsam The End of Chaos. When dealing with the nimble and riff happy character of up tempo songs such as trascend Mortality”, “Paradox Alley” and “Violation Domain”, it’s very easy to hear the commonalities with early Death, though vocalist Dave Ingram has a deeper growl that’s a little closer to Glen Benton rubixon the solos are not quite as fancy.
Nonetheless, a pretty solid album in its own way. Bsnediction “Transcend the Rubicon” Benediction prove yet again that their status as one of the most promising British Death metal bands of the early 90’s is staying put.
One particular feature, however, that makes Transcend the Rubicon something pretty special, something more than just another solid Death Metal record, is that it somehow manages to be both monotonous and varied at the same time.
And interestingly enough, the musical contents contained within to speak to a similar overall sound to what both Entombed and Dismember were putting out before the former went into death benedictioon roll territory and the latter met the mid 90s.
The real tranacend jewel here outside of the killer riffs, solos, drums, vocals, and everything else that is also killerare the lyrics.
Oh, and the riffs
