Promo 1999 Enslain Magazine Issue #8
This two song promo from the Netherlands is over before it's given the opportunity to leave a mark on you. These aren't the lengthiest songs, or the most memorable. What you'll hear is technically apt and darkly textured death metal riffs, in the vein of Morbid Angel. It takes a few spins before the songs dig their claws into you, but afterwards it's evident that, though not displayed with the tightest of productions, Virulent has strong songwriting ability, and should be able to mature as a band to produce an even more shredding full-length. -- Lady Enslain
