ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Melody crashes into brutality and breathes new life into the black metal scene with the debut from A Hill To Die Upon. Coming to us from the corn fields of Illinois, A Hill To Die Upon sounds more akin to their musical brethren, raising the banner of Norwegian black metal with their own twist. Though technical and brutal at the core, each song is melodic and possesses a unique atmosphere. The core of the band is 2 brothers, Adam and Michael Cook, who formed the band several years ago and began a long musical journey until they found their place in the annals of frost-bitten European black metal, and the result does not disappoint. The vocals are brutally crushing, the guitars shred, with Adam joined by Elisha Mullins, and the bass is thunderous, featuring none other than Ravn (Frosthardr). Michael is a prodigy on the drums and seamlessly switches from skull splitting 1000 mile per hour blast beats to mid-paced technical parts to slower sections to create a sonic soundscape of finesse colliding with utter brutality. Perhaps the most amazing thing of all is that 3 of the 4 members are under the age of 20. Also not to be missed is the outstanding artwork, a commissioned original painting by Bogdan from Serbia, which is easily one of the best extreme metal covers ever designed. If you feast on the sounds of bands like Behemoth, 1349, Dimmu Borgir, and Antestor, or just love your black metal extreme while retaining some semblance of melody, and you are looking for something fresh, look no further than the debut from A Hill to Die Upon. It is melodic black metal brutality of infinitely titanic proportions that will make mere mortals quake where they stand.

Punishing Debut
Man, I've been exposed to a handful of bands from the USBM scene. My friends/Gothicfest mates in Withering Soul and the band 13 Winters which is a pagan themed Black Metal band then a band I hosted a show at that really caught me offguard named Ezurate. This band is one of those that takes the Scandinavian Black Metal blueprint and also does something cool with it. Just like Withering Soul where the core group are two brothers (both of Chicago and Italy.) Withering Soul is Chicago's premiere Black Metal band but this one.

This one is definately designed for the Black Metal fanbase where their idea of selling out is selling 666 copies. Well this one I wish them the best of luck in the realm of Black metal because black metal fans are very unforgiving in their tastes of metal and debates about God.

I never thought the center of my home state of Illinois can come up with something equally as punishing as Withering Soul. I hate comparing these two bands because they are entirely different with the vocal ranges. Adam Cook has a distinct vocal style that works with this album. It's just as cold and just as black as Ezurate but there is a difference between the two -- Ezurate sings about blasphemous themes. Musically they're a tight band, but these guys, A Hill To Die Upon borrowed more from the blackened church burning north and do something that will shock a lot of listeners. It's a surprise that they were actually a Metalcore band before forming this cold black entity that can be the thundering voice of an angry God.

I wish I can go longer with this review because there is so much to talk about with this CD. I picked this one up most recently from the New Wave Of Prevailing Metal sampler that their label puts out there. I actually planned to promote these guys first but I got Dagon's CD from the label first on CD Baby.com when I bought Apocalypse In Retrospect from their elder statesmen Bloodstream Parade.
