Nine
Killing Angels (Deathwise)

By: Mike SOS

Swedish melodic death metallers Nine wield a mighty riff, aptly displayed on the 10-track release Killing Angels. Melding the unlikely tandem of the low end of Entombed, the savagery of Carcass, and the raw rock release of The Hellacopters, tracks like the blistering opener "Inferno" contain demonic grooves that only a well-versed Swedish outfit could muster. Bold choruses and over the top vocals are some of Nine's strong suits, as songs with the deathrock feel of "The Strategy of Fear" and the QOTSA meets The Haunted onslaught of "Discontent O.D." are laden with such attributes. Twisting the metal, stoner, and rock genres into its own concoction, Killing Angels is sonically solid and provides a righteous listening experience to those that enjoy the sounds of a true example of crossover metal.
