Drain of Impurity – The Seventh Planet of the Infected Cygnus System

I feel like there’s a really great concept somewhere in here. I can feel the space exploration gone wrong, and how a nobel crew gets torn limb from limb by ghastly space monsters. The problem is the music just doesn’t do it justice. This is a good piece of brutal death metal, but there’s nothing that matches the concept attempted. It’s a short album, which is good for a genre that doesn’t exactly bring a lot of variety to the table. But even then there isn’t enough substance for the album to reach it’s potential. I love the intros to each track, and I love that they build a sort of story. But it’s not executed as well as it needed to be to be a fantastic album.
