FromHell_Heresy_CoverSwelling with this air of Hacride-esque mysticism, “Nemesis of Neglect” slowly devolves into a Converge meets Entombed guitar barrage. Those comparisons continue especially taking on the Entombed guitar tones mixed with a kind of Jacob Bannon style inhuman screech but a little more guttural on “Terror”. Thus begins Heresy, the debut ruckus from Detroit’s From Hell.

Moving on, “Unholy” is a seriously unholy merging of time signatures that just might just render listeners mad upon excessive repeat listens. Later still, Charles Bukowski leads the spoken word “Crucifix in a Deathhand” but the quiet reprieve is fleeting as “Holy War” unleashes  “Hell” once again.

The only real downside here is that it’s over before it really began. With seven tracks, two being instrumentals/interludes, the substance that makes up Heresy tends to be a little lacking. What you’re left with, however, is a nice mini album that shows a lot of promise of what’s to come.
