Discern - _Revive and Rebuke_
(Independent, 1998)
by: Alex Cantwell (8 out of 10)
This CD kicks you right square in the arse immediately after the play button is pushed. To my amazement, this frighteningly good death metal is played single-handedly by one Bill Fraser, who once upon a time played drums for Oblation. He has done an astounding job, because _Revive and Rebuke_ in no way, at all at all at all, sounds like a one-man project. Every note and drum hit fits perfectly into place, and like I said before, will totally kick the listener in the pants. The CD is an eight song affair of very aggressive American death metal, with the exception of an acoustic instrumental, and the main riff from Kiss' "She" as an outro. I will not compare this with any other bands, so as not to give you any pre-conceived ideas about Discern. Instead, I will make a safe, broad statement; if you like fast death metal with loads of double bass and deep vocals barking out fast paced lyrics, (you know, all the things that make great death metal), then by all means make a point of tracking this down. I really hope to hear more from this guy in the future.
