The Buffalo metal scene has a rich history with infamous bands like Tirant Sin, Leviathan, Malevolent Creation, and Cannibal Corpse. Keeping the faith, Hellcannon emerged on the scene in 2009, producing a demo RAIDERS OF THE WASTE before recording their crushing debut INFECTED WITH VIOLENCE in 2010. Now on Vile Records with a new lineup, Hellcannon has re-issued INFECTED WITH VIOLENCE for the uninitiated. Prepare to be shredded!
After an acoustic intro, opening track “Leviathan” explodes into death thrash mayhem! This is some good shit! Think Testament meets Morbid Angel! Killer riffs and solos with Ryan Fiorita’s growl on top. His voice here has a bit of ALTARS OF MADNESS David Vincent and a bit of Jeff Walker (Carcass) in it, awesome! Some songs are blistering and fast (“Chainsaw Ripping Death”) while others feature various tempo changes (“Harbinger of War”) and all of it is brutal. My favorite “Raiders of the Waste” has a great chorus and riff that just stays burned in the brain! All of the tracks are great, no filler, just 33 minutes of fury!
Highly recommended for fans of death and thrash metal. Check Hellcannon out, they fucking deliver!
