There's no vaccination needed for the metallic transmissions made by Soul Embraced, a power trio in every sense of the word. Rising from the ashes of the acclaimed Living Sacrifice, Immune boasts 10 tracks of ruthless aggression, mixing the chugging guitars of hardcore with a death metal yowl that sounds as if it came from way below the Earth's core. With guitars as heavy as Meshuggah or any other Swedish metal entity, especially on the aptly titled "I Bury You", and the rhythms as tight as the law allows, the searing combination of brutality and technicality makes this trio sound as full as the nine member strong Slipknot, without the idiotic imagery and with all of the metal goodness intact. How's that for a compact band? Soul Embraced will both scare and rock the hell out of you.
