Review Type: 

Who?: The Kennedy Veil are a quartet (Gabe Seeber-d, KC Childers-g, Shawn Peterson-b, and new vocalist Taylor Wientjes) from Sacramento, California, U.S.Aha, returning with Trinity Of Falsehood. Duration: 32:32 minutes.

What?: fast and furious Death Metal of the most technically performed kind, filled with expected and unexpected breaks and a both modern and traditional execution of the material. It’s like an unholy marriage in between the likes of bands like Incantation, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Aborted, Suffocation and Malevolent Creation at the one hand, and Origin, Psycroptic and Misery Index at the other.

Pros and cons: It completely lacks of an own face. It does not matter normally, but when the average quality isn’t that optimum, it might bother and bore. In this album’s case it is somewhat in the middle of, at the one hand, a waw-effect, and at the other hand a feeling of irritation. This material is all right, but in comparison to the bands I summed up above (all right, I need to admit that those are some of the top-acts within this specific genre), The Kennedy Veil aren’t but lesser disciples.

Positive addition to end with: the sound. Indeed, the production is superb, and it fits wonderfully well to the compositions. The stuff was produced by Nick Botelho at his NB Recording Studio in California, and I am impressed by the aural result.

Conclusion: only for ‘true’ fans of this shit.
