Cadaver Inc. - Discipline
Not knowing anything about this band, I searched around for their website and found quite an interesting discovery. The official site is probably the most creative band website I've ever come across. Although it offers little information about the band itself, it does present other tidbits on corpse disposal, witness elimination, murder scene cover-ups, etc.

Now if only "Discipline" were that inventive, the band would be set for world domination. Alright, that might be an exaggeration, but you get the gist of it. CADAVER INC. contains members from DIMMU BORGIR and DODHEIMSGARD, among others, and hails from Norway. The music is a mix of blackened Death Metal with some grinding guitars and blast-beat drums all over the place. The vocals are somewhat guttural, closer to Black Metal screams rather than death growls, and a fairly harsh delivery. "Discipline" is full of solid songs that don't stand out too much from each other. Some songs might catch your attention more than others, like "Murderhead," but once you listen to the whole album you'll agree with me.

The aforementioned song has this mid-tempo, groovy part with about a minute left that leaves an impression and reminds you of some DARKTHRONE riffing - maybe because Fenriz of DARKTHRONE makes a guest appearance on this album! There also seems to be a uniform similarity with all the songs. Equally powerful in delivery (and length), and all contain moments of pure hellish torment mixed in with slow torturous segments. Overall, "Discipline" is one aggressive debut that upholds the quality of Norwegian Metal. I urge you to visit the official website at: (Online January 07, 2003)
