Deteriorot - The Faithless (2010)

Band: Deteriorot
Genre: Old School Death Metal
Country: United States

Deteriorot is back with their second full-length, The Faithless, which has been a long wait for the cult following the band developed in the 90's and then bolstered with their debut, In Ancient Beliefs, in 2001. While the album does has some killer riffs, both standard, mid-paced death metal and slower, death/doom riffs, I still have the same problem with this album as I did with their last: the vocals. Don't get me wrong, I've always had a great amount of respect for Zavaleta as a guitarist, but the vocals are very similar to that of the half-clean, half-growled, not-quite-deep-enough style of Dave Ingram-era Benediction which is one I've just never found particularly appealing. Personal gripes aside though, The Faithless is well worth more than a few listens and proves that, even after eight plus years of inactivity, Deteriorot can still get it done.
