Fallujah The Flesh Prevails Album Cover Art

Fallujah
The Flesh Prevails
CD | MP3
Unique Leader Records
Release date: July 22, 2014

Technical death metal perfection. That’s pretty much all that need be said about Fallujah‘s brilliant new release The Flesh Prevails. From the moment that you lay eyes on the gorgeous album art until the final notes of album closer “Chemical Cave” leave you jaw agape, this album takes you on a journey through ethereal beauty and Earth-shaking brutality. The musicianship is astounding and inventive. Even in the moments of calm in the eye of this storm, Fallujah never let you forget that this record is HEAVY in nearly every conceivable sense of the word. Listen below to the album’s first single “Sapphire.”

Fallujah is a San Francisco-based band and The Flesh Prevails is their second full-length offering. Their 2011 debut album The Harvest Wombs was nothing short of a masterful display of technical death metal musicianship. The Flesh Prevails ups the ante to dizzying heights. I honestly did not believe that there would be a record this year that would even give Behemoth’s magnum opus The Satanist a run for record of the year in the death metal category. I was wrong. The Flesh Prevails edges it due to it’s sheer inventiveness. Furthermore, I believe that it has actually accomplished the task of ranking right up there with the best overall metal album of the year so far Triptykon’s Melana Chasmata. It’s going to be a tough call come the end of the year.

I have always said that death metal is opera for metal heads. Using that analogy, this album is a feat of Wagnerian proportions. This is where I usually list the highlights of the record. In this case, the entire record is the highlight. DO NOT miss this album if you are a fan of technical death metal and insanely great musicianship.

Album Rating 10.0 out of 10.
