Slayers of Eden is the debut release from the heavy metal outfit Every Knee Shall Bow and it is a serious, all-out voracious battering of the senses. The extremely down tuned guitars and grinding double bass drum work provide the perfect vehicle for Chris Hull’s insanely throaty vocal delivery. At times it is brash and guttural while at others it has an unearthly scream-like quality to it, but it is always enormously powerful! I find it utterly amazing that he has any vocal chords left at all.

As heavy and punishing as it gets though, Every Knee Shall Bow still manage to retain a fair amount of groove that really makes the songs move along – at times I was vaguely reminded of other bands I dig including The Acacia Strain, All Shall Perish, or even Carnifex.

This is sheer brutality in every sense of the word and I think it is a terrific debut from a band I am hoping to hear more from in the near future. I am certain fans of heavy metal music will eat this one up. Check it out I, think it is worth the spin.
