THE CAGE OF EXISTENCE
HELL AND DEATH
From the opening scream of THE CAGE OF EXISTENCE, Cerberus establishes its place as an unwaveringly volatile entity, as this ferocious 10-track disc explodes with shards of death metal proficiency and thrash metal technicality. And then, the gargled glass vocals that seal the deal, thrusting tracks like the nasty “Fractured Extraction” into death metal’s upper echelon. Fortified with crushing death metal grooves, “Brutal Remains” lashes out with bold aggression, while the acoustic intro on “The Path…” foreshadows yet another battering courtesy of “The Gates of Mercy”. Meshing classic metal’s crunch with a heavy-handed death metal aura, this California-based quintet delivers a metal album whose unbridled fury and thrash metal prowess are top notch.
