Firstly I have to admit that I haven't heard of Drawn and Quartered before... The Seattle-based quartet plays brutal death metal in the vein of Cannibal Corpse (among others). Return of the Black Death is their 3rd album...

Songs on "Return of the Black Death" are quite basic death metal. Fortunately, the high-pitched pinch harmonics aren't overly used, but they're used in a complementary way. Occasionally there are few good riffs and melodic guitar passages, but mostly the songs are quite repetitious humdrum. However, I won't judge the lyrical content (instead I'll leave it to your judgement).

The sounds are quite full and suitable for a death metal record. There are few clips and also distortion occurred sometimes, but otherwise the recording is relatively clean.

Overall, Drawn and Quartered's "Return of the Black Death" is quite a moderate death metal album. It doesn't offer anything new to the genre, and its songs don't belong to the lite of death metal. However, it isn't a bad album (it just doesn't stand out from other releases).
