CD The Brimstone Aggrandizement #65686
Release Date: December 22, 2016
New death metal supergroup ECHELON employ the services of David Ingram (ex-BOLT THROWER, URSINNE, DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN, ex-BENEDICTION), Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN, EYE OF PURGATORY), Johan Berglund (THE GROTESQUERY), Kjetil Lynghaug (PAGANIZER, JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN) and Travis Ruvo (AKATHARTA, CROPSY MANIAC). Expect death metal that is stupendous, old school and fleshed out, emphasizing on crushing British brutality coupled with classic Swedish melodic sensibilities and riffing power. Care has been taken to ensure that the nostalgic value remains foremost, as the music traverses through many winding yet memorable songs, with impeccable compositions by the riff-master Rogga and probably one of David Ingram's finest vocal performances of his career. This is a varied, bombastic album that will go down as one of the strongest albums of this era.
