ROSE FUNERAL
CRUCIFY KILL ROT
CANDLELIGHT

Death metal with a side of tough guy metalcore mentality is served on the 10-track CRUCIFY ROT KILL by Cincinnati quintet Rose Funeral. With a rapid-fire array of gnarly vocals, abrasive guitars, and a rhythm section armed with the power of a wrecking ball, tracks like the deliciously-titled "Sledge Hammer Face-Lift" and "State of Decay" are far from unique. Yet this act's At The Gates by way of As I Lay Dying style doesn't suffer from the lack of originality that you'd expect, as the chunky riffs and simple yet effective melodies, although heard before, wreak the all too familiar havoc that seemingly never gets old as long as disenchanted youths still turn 17 every year.
