It can't all be inventive and Dutch deathers Burning Hatred is proof of this. The band don't try any new tricks on their demo Apocalypse of the Dead, but that doesn't make the music less appealing. The Dutchmen are enthused by Swedish acts such as Dismember and Grave, but also Bolt Thrower have been an inspiration. It's noticeable, but not in a way that make the band seem like a clone.
The music is varied and to some degree also fairly catchy. It doesn't hurt the music either that the band is approaching things from a more mid-tempo kind of viewpoint. It may not make the music more original sounding, but it does help create a bit of identity. Regardless of relying on many ideas already tried Burning Hatred has made a demo that is worth checking out.
