Album title: Gallows
Label: Prosthetic Records

Release: CD

Landmine Marathon is an American death metal band that hails forth from Phoenix, Arizona. The band was formed in 2004 and is currently signed to Prosthetic Records. With the founding members Mike Waldron, Eric Saylor, Mike Pohlmeier and Nick Ziska, the band originally, sounded somewhat in the style of Napalm Death, and average song lengths under one minute.

But much has changed since then, and although the some songs still are on the rather short side, they really sound better and are more brutal. With this new record they haven’t reinvented their sound or went outside their safe bubble, but they built up from their foundations and worked hard to create an album witch is a joy to listen to. With four highly acclaimed long players under their belts in just six years, this female fronted band is slowly turning into a crushing force to be reckoned with.
