A Hill to Die Upon is formed back in 2004 in Illinois, USA. According to their biography they were searching for a musical identity in the beginning: “If there was one thing to describe A Hill to Die Upon, it would be a resistance to die. From the beginning, AHTDU has made it a point to do, whatever that may be, the best they possibly can. Starting out as a two piece hardcore act and growing through over several genre leaps, A Hill to Die Upon became a black metal duo of two brothers that would not stop after any hardship that came their way.” Besides a demo, this Infinite Titanic Immortal is their first (full-length) release and again we have a band that got it’s inspiration from the point of view of Christianity.

The music of A Hill to Die Upon melodic is brutal as well as melodic. The fact that this was starting as a hardcore band can only be heard when you got this information in the back of your head en listens very well. But on the other hand, death metal has got a big footprint in the music. A band that is mentioned in the info sheet that came with this album is Behemoth and with moments I must agree with this comparison.

For people that like death metal spurs in their black metal or those who think Behemoth is a great band, can have an interesting new band to keep an eye on. For me this is nice release to listen to and for a debut not bad at all.
