Perdition Temple - Edict of the Antichrist Elect (2010)
Make no mistake, musically everything here is a continuation of Angelcorpse. It's kinda hard for it to be any other way, really, considering that Palubicki wrote the lion's share of riffs for that band and has not budged and inch in regards to any sort of stylistic change. If there's one thing to say as far as any sort of difference in approach goes it would be that Perdition Temple actually sounds MORE fucking angry and vengeful than Angelcorpse ever had with Gene delving even further into war metal territory, though because of the whirlwind of riff intricacies this band without a doubt falls under the death metal moniker.
Not terribly sure why he chose to do Apocalypse Command and then bounce back to this with an impending new album as they all basically sound like the same band (yes, that includes Angelcorpse minus Helmkamp) but whatever. There can never be enough of a good thing, now can there?
