Despite the striking crime photography spearheading “The Devilty’s” art direction, along with its themes based on free speech, racism, murder, and school shootings (the list goes on), this Danish quintet sound rather light (all things considered). Pitch Black work off a thrash template, and combine occasional death-cum-progressive elements to the party - closest to the bone with Slayers, “God Hates Us All”, albeit in an increasingly modern vibe. Other than that, the group speak out against subjects, which have been addressed time and time again throughout the medium, and their brand of metal isn’t a whiff of fresh air – this is a copied template, with little personality of its own to claim for.
