Derogatory (U.S.): "Above All Else” (FDA Rekotz)

Derogatory (U.S.): "Above All Else” (FDA Rekotz)
Devotees into those old Earache and Roadrunner bands, you better buckle up your seatbelt for a trip back in time to early 90s death metal.
I will limit this review to three observations. The riffs are clear yet heavy, with some thrashiness. Two: the songs are fairly traditional and linear. It’s definitely fun and you don’t have to be a math wizard to understand it.
Finally, Derogatory plays fast. They blast and also play at speed-metal velocity. Derogatory is not a “melodic” band but a sick, heavy one. The melody that is heard comes from the only place in traditional death metal: in some moments of the guitar solos. It’s “melody,” but it’s not sweet, sugary stuff.
Death metal: “baby Malevolent Creation” or “baby Monstrosity.” Metal
