Full Length Review: Cruel Fate "A Quaternary of Decrepit Night Mares" (PRC Music) by Devin J. Meaney

Band: Cruel Fate
Location: Quebec
Country: Canada
Genre: Death metal
Format: CD, digital
Label: PRC Music
Distributor: CDN Records
Release date: December 29, 2019
This is yet again a release I copped through CDN Records that was originally released by Dawning Septic. As I stated in an earlier review some of the releases I got through Dawning Septic were “good” but less than spectacular so I was worried this one would be a bust. But just like the release I got by Bloodphemy this is pretty damn solid!
It is your standard blast of death metal with heavy guitars and drums and vocals and all that jazz but what is most notable is the atmosphere. This release has some severe eerie/creepy vibes and I’d suggest it for a listen if you happen to be in a “darker” mood. Something that is cool about this tape is that all the tracks are on the same side so once you complete the album you can flip it and listen to it again.
The cassette is your standard black but it has a really cool fancy engraved logo on it. This might not mean anything to some but I am always just as intrigued by the packaging/look of my tapes as I am with the music. A cool tape doesn’t mean the music is going to be awesome...but if the music IS good a decent tape helps add to the vibe.
Again, this is one for a darker mood. Maybe listen to it during a rainstorm with lots of thunder? Or a blizzard maybe? However you decided to indulge in this one—I approve. -Devin J. Meaney
