Christ Denied – …Got What He Deserved (1996)

May 13, 2024

My only experience with Christ Denied was seeing Anaal Nathrakh having their set cut short at OEF 2013 so that these guys could play. It was one guy with a guitar and a drum machine, and a vocalist dude who stood completely still and wore sunglasses even at like midnight. I was like, WTF is this bullshit? Lmao – it seemed like Mickey Mouse bedroom death metal compared to the shortened aural assault of the ever excellent Anaal Nathrakh.

That experience put me off checking out Christ Denied for many years, but the loss is truly mine own, as Got What He Deserved is an excellent slab of death metal. I love me some fuckin drum machines so the upfront honestly of the drum sound chosen for this thing immediately grabbed my attention. Took me right back to the 2006 obsession with drum machine goregrind and death metal haha – in all seriousness though, this is a great record. No frills, perhaps, but there’s some surprising twists and turns with the riffs and the whole thing is brutal as fuck.
