Edmonton, AB radio station CJSR 88.5 FM has posted an exclusive track by track with Death Toll Rising guitarist Drew Copland for the death metal band's new album 'Infection Legacy' at the following link here.
The album features nine assaulting tracks combining death and thrash metal that has been well received by metal media.
“Some very good things are happening in Western Canadian metal these days, and Edmonton’s Death Toll Rising have come through with a very impressive second album. While rooted in death metal, they occasionally dip into thrash groove and progressive metal technicality, which you don’t see very often, and which gives the music a good, dynamic quality. Savage one minute, intricate the next, the quality on this record is well above your average self-released album, a true diamond in the rough. Don’t miss out on it.” DeciBlog / Decibel Magazine
“I love this album, it is forty-five minutes of full tilt death/thrash excitement.” 5/5 – Metal Talk
“Infection Legacy sticks out from the pack for its meticulous riffing, well crafted hooks, and elements of thrash and progressive metal.” – Edmonton Sun
“Charging riffs, intense growling vocals, chaotic soloing and hard-hitting blast beats. Seems it’s all here. And the legends that came before them would be proud. Sounds like: Devin Townsend hitting up a jam with the late, great Chuck Schuldiner. ” – Scott Jones – Alan Cross : Professional Music Geek: A Journal of Musical Things
“Death Toll Rising is a two-headed monster that won’t even let you take a breath” – Against Magazine
“Infection Legacy is an unbelievable slab of bone-breaking, thrashing death metal that takes no prisoners and instantly pounds the listener into submission. The title track begins spreading the communicable disease with a fast-paced, crushing riff and eerie unnatural guttural growls, and from there the contagion grows like wildfire infecting your ears and eventually your psyche." - PureGrainAudio.com
