Vital Remains  


A veteran East Coast death metal band, Vital Remains already had made a name for themselves with a string of successful albums in the 90's, but scored a major coup by recruiting Deicide's Glen Benton for their fifth album, 2003's Dechristianize, one of the better pure death metal releases of the year. Benton's vocals are as intense as one would expect, but the guitar work of Tony Lazaro and Dave Suzuki deserve a mention, as they inject an unexpected sense of melody amidst the typical brutal riffing (best heard on the title track). Dechristianize may have served to rejuvenate Benton, whose main band turned in a fine performance on their recent album (Scars Of The Crucifix).
