Warpath. From the first song, I get the idea that this CD will lead me into a warpath involving gory chaos and bloody bodies flung carelessly left and right, mutilated and degraded in every possible way. Unfortunately, the warpath seems more like a campaign, and that campaign to legalize marijuana.
Well, it’s not that bad, I suppose. I just wish Barnes would leave the pot obssession in his personal life and interviews rather than throwing it into death metal songs. I want gore. Not a dreadlocked death metal legend telling me how great weed is and how bad it is that it’s not legal.
I really like War is Coming, Nonexistence, Burning Blood, and Revenge of the Zombie on this CD. The rest is just there. Some of it tolerable, some of it not so tolerable. Some of the songs sound an awful lot alike, and I was sad, because this isn’t the first Six Feet Under CD I listened to(listened to a lot of Maximum Violence, some of Haunted, bought True Carnage and Bringer of Blood before hearing anything off this but Warpath)and I was disappointed that the songs didn’t seem to have as much of a distinct difference between them as I had grown accostumed to from Six Feet Under. They don’t sound EXACTLY alike, don’t get me wrong. They’re just somewhat similar. Which is somewhat boring.
If you’re a 6FU fan, definitely get it. If you don’t know about it, go ahead and still get it, because it’s worth it for the songs that are good, and the ones that aren’t great don’t rape your ears with badness or anything.
Of course, listen to the clips first to see if you like their style as a lot of death metal elitists don’t like it.
