SOUTHWICKED (U.S. / Europe) “Death’s Crown” CD review

Southwicked are Floridian death metallers featuring one of the founding members of the movement in one Allen West. You know that guy from Obituary, Massacre and Six Feet Under. I seen one review say this album is super similar to the first Six Feet Under record, I would not really know as I honestly never tried to get into that band. As for Death’s Crown it is some solid death metal that is a cross between a muted, less awesome Obituary sound mixed with the Swedish death metal sound of old. The combining of those two on paper actually sounds pretty damn exciting to me. I love Obit and worship old Swedish death and you know this is a pretty good album, but really that is all it is, just pretty good. I guess I was just expecting a little more with that sound mix and having it involve Allen West. Maybe I project unfair baggage and expectations Mr. West, but that sort of comes along with him, whether he likes it or not, the price of being a legend in the genre. If you can keep your expectations out of the sky where mine were I think you will probably really dig this album. It is certainly growing on me bit by bit with each new listen.  Still has a ways to go to get to great album status for me though.
