Rapture - Sinister Creation
Wow, these Mexican dudes are totally influenced by the US Death Metal scene. Rapture´s style could be described best as technical Death Metal in the vein of mighty Morbid Angel, Gorguts or Suffocation. The songs are fast as hell with continuing variations and don´t take prisoners at all. The many good ideas and riffs carry the song structures a huge step forward while the production is (without any doubt) one the best I ever heard from a Mexican band. These guys truely have an infernal vision of what they wanted to sound like and I guess they´re damn close to their goal. The Grave cover shows Raptures respect for the Scandinavian Death Metal scene and is one of the few moments to slow down a little bit. It also finishes “Sinister creation” with class. Well, it´s up to you, if you give Rapture a chance or not, but you´ll surely miss some great underground stuff, if you deny them. Stay away if you like melodic music - This is the real shit.
