2011’s Illud Divinus Insanus was a disjointed affair that was greeted with universal disapproval due to its industrial leanings. It really was a stinker. Vocalist/bassist David Vincent soon left the fold for a second time to be replaced again by his successor Steve Tucker. Thankfully, Kingdoms Disdained opts for a full-on death metal assault.
The riffs are back, as is the anger, making for a collection of songs that are memorable to the ears, yet still complex. Kingdoms Disdained will go a long way in redeeming the band in the eyes of fans.
Kingdoms Disdained is out now via Silver Lining Music.
