Completely distancing themselves from any of the pop trappings of the screamo genre, the Murdered lay down a full-scale sonic massacre on their debut seven-song EP, THE MAGGOTS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH. A seething ball of hatred--taking the form of barbed-wire guitar riffs and bloodcurdling vocals--threatens to crush listeners on tracks like "The Darkness Unveiled: Beneath the Scorched Remains of Corpses." The death metal-inspired music is so intense here that a full album of this stuff might destroy weaker listeners.
